Repeating Patterns

Owls had lots of fun completing a range of practical activities on repeating patterns. I was very impressed with how they were able to challenge themselves by trying out shape and colour patterns with up to 5 different pieces in a pattern!

On Thursday, Owls received an important email from some little bears asking them to help their friends get across a river safely whilst staying  dry.

Social Club week 4

This week in social club we have made Christmas glitter plants. The children loved using the glitter! Social club continued with their scrap books and built huge speed stack towers. The children have played with the scoot boards and enjoyed colouring.

Instructions for being an explorer

Today the children acted out  instructions for being an explorer.  As a class, we decided the actions for each of the instructions, ready to perform to each other. The next step is for the children to use the actions to help them write the instructions. Well done everyone!
