The week started very differently from the way it ended! Because it was so gloriously sunny on Monday, green class planted some bulbs and seeds outside. They are all now in green class, where the children will observe what happens to them, over time.
This week the children have been learning about doubles and halves. They used Cuisinaire to explore the relationship between them. They had to find two equal-sized rods which, together, were the same as one other rod of a different colour.
Today Mrs Yerbury came in and made an Easter garden with some of the children. Afterwards, they explained to the class the significance of the items in there, the flowers representing new life and the pot representing the cave where Christians believe Jesus’ body was laid. This will help embed the children’s understanding of the meaning of Easter for Christians, which Mrs Lyal is teaching them about on Thursdays.
