This week in literacy, we read the book ‘The egg’. We had to predict what we thought was inside this gigantic egg and write our predictions down on our whiteboards. We then continued to read the story and we found out that there was a dragon inside. On Wednesday, we discussed what it would be like to have a dragon as a pet. We wrote down a list of positives and negatives to having a pet dragon.
In Maths, we revisited 3D shapes. We looked at the different shapes in the bag and named them and we also described the shapes using our maths words: faces, vertices and edges.
In phonics, we recapped our phase three sounds and key words.
In RE, we recapped the Easter story and we looked at how we celebrate Easter and why. We then had to find the eggs hidden around the room that contained different parts of the story and we had to sequence them.
In Topic, we spoke about how we celebrate Easter and then we looked at how Easter is celebrated around the world. We found out that in Scotland eggs are rolled down a hill to remind us of the rolling away of the stone in front of the tomb. In a town called Haux, in France, a ginormous pancake is made using 4,500 eggs. In Bermuda, kites are made and flown to celebrate that Jesus rose from the dead.
We had an egg and spoon race outside and then we celebrated Easter like Scotland and we rolled our eggs across the playground.
The rain prevented us from having an Easter egg hunt outside, so we had one in the classroom instead. I hope you liked your masks, bunnies and raisins.
This is some of what we did during our continuous provision:
We made our bunny and chick popcorn cups and bookmarks for our Easter fair. We also painted eggs and decorated eggs.
Finger gym table:
We cut out some Easter items, painted eggs using cotton buds and added the right number of spots to the eggs.
We matched the eggs, did some egg addition, made some 3D shape bunnies and carrots and weighed eggs.
We continued to find, make and name 3D shapes around the classroom.
We wrote about what we would like to find in our Easter eggs, we wrote down what the bunny might say, we did some free choice writing and we wrote some Easter cards.
Small world table:
We loved our Easter related small world table. We counted, we added and we even halved the eggs.
We read words and matched the pictures, we chose a picture to put in the top part of an egg and wrote down the corresponding word. We also read captions and matched the pictures.
We loved developing our fine motor skills whilst using our brand new peg boards and weaving boards.
We also did this:
Have a lovely holiday 🐣 🐣
