We have been exploring a range of materials which we can use for junk modelling. We have learned about different types of materials such as cardboard, plastics and metal. We talked about recycling and reusing materials to help the environment. When exploring the materials we linked the learning with our previous 3D shape work to stack and roll different shapes.
We have recently starting learning about symmetrical patterns. We have experimented with paint by painting a pattern then folding the paper to print a symmetrical pattern on the other side of the paper. We have also explored symmetrical patterns using mirrors.
On World Book Day we learned the story of The Three Little Pigs. We created pictures using 2D shapes, coloured in characters and then wrote the story for ourselves.
We use a range of resources such as puzzles, activity boards and games to help us learn our number bonds.
