This week in Harburn, we have been celebrating 2 special events.
We decided to have a theme to the week to incorporate lots of areas of the curriculum with the main thread of numeracy and literacy running through. The theme we decided on was ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
We all really enjoyed this theme and we were able to experience lots of different activities linked to the story. We also had lots of opportunities to try out a variety of activities helping to develop our skills in numeracy and language.
On Wednesday we celebrated World Maths Day with an array of activities from sorting colours to following directions with the bee-bots. We also played games on our i-pads and sang number rhymes.
On Thursday we celebrated World Book Day – again with lots of different activities with letters and a teddy bear picnic where we read our favourite books. We also listened and interacted with the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ before making our own version of the book.
We are also making a book called ‘Learning through play’ and we hope to have this completed in time to showcase at our open afternoon during science week.
