We also explored floating and sinking and made boats out of tin foil to carry buttons!
In maths we practised addition and subtraction and began solving problems including doubling and halving. We even sorted numbers to 20 into odds and evens.
We also explored flat (2d) and solid (3d) shapes describing them using mathematical words like sides, corners and faces. We also used the language of capacity when finding which container held the most.
In English we shared stories such as Tiddler by Julia Donaldson and Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. We wrote lists of fish and we wrote about the Rainbow Fish story. We also wrote our own under the sea stories.
On Sports Day we took part in running and obstacle races and we explored moving like bees, planes, birds, rockets and kites from our Flutter and Fly project work.
