Our book this week was Owl Babies which we thoroughly enjoyed reading and one which we chose to visit many times during milk and fruit time. We talked about how each of the owls were feeling when Mother Owl disappeared. We thought about what the owls looked like and the reasons they have sharp talons and beaks and also the kinds of things they eat.
We found different ways of creating owl artwork which included printing, using chalk and painting with different types of media which included string, cotton wool and pipe cleaners. We found some of these easier to use than others.
In maths, we thought about numbers up to and including 3 and how we can make these numbers using objects. We thought about different sounds we hear at night time and when we get ready for bed. We also explored different materials hidden in socks to find which ones the owls would find comfortable for their bed. We thought of different words to describe these including hard, bumpy, soft and squishy.
We have had a very full and exciting week this week. Our story for the week was Peace At Last which we had lots of fun with thinking about and mimicking all of the noises Mrs Bear heard as he was trying to go to sleep one night. We also thought about our own bedtime routine; thinking about what we do first, then and after.
We have enjoyed exploring outside and creating models using our large construction as well as becoming more confident riding the bikes.
On Friday, we learnt all about Tilly the Molar tooth and how she became dirty and poorly because she ate lots of sugary food and drank lots of sugary and fizzy drinks. We then thought about what we needed to do to keep our teeth healthy and used our new toothbrushes to brush have a go at brushing our own teeth.
