In Easter this week, the children have continued their learning around Easter by creating an Easter Garden. Oak Class retold the Easter Story as they added objects to symbolise important parts of the story. We looked for signs of new life and noticed our blossom in the garden. We used paints and created our own blossom pictures using hand and fingerprints as we discussed signs of Spring.
Our focus in PE has been on co-ordination. The children took part in hopscotch, bean bag throwing and a game of mountains and valleys. They had to co-ordinate their bodies to turn the opposing teams cones to either a mountain or valley.
We have been learning the names for 3D shapes and describing their properties. We enjoyed playing ‘shapes in a bag’ where children had to choose a shape and describe its properties to the class for them to guess. Through song, we compared everyday objects and categorised them by shape.
To celebrate Ramadan, we read the book Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns and learned about praying, the Qu ‘ran and mosques. The children made links between Islamic worship and the Christian worship and celebrations that we have explored so far this term in RE. Oak Class were particularly interested in the henna decoration of hands and feet and created their own henna pictures using paints and fine brushes.
