This week we were able to use our wildlife area for the first time this year. After going on an explorer walk and we sat down with our sketch books, looking closely at all the trees and objects in the orchard and beyond.
Also, our winning the Gem Power meant we could have extra time on on the trim trail.
Being outside gave us ideas and we came up with questions to investigate, like "Why is the sky full of water? and Why is the sky blue? We investigated a little by watching a video about rain, but our learning will go on.
This week in Mathematics we have been learning about addition and have been finding out about the Part, part, whole model. Using grids we were able to investigate the addition facts of 5, 6 and 7.
Our Food, Glorious, Food topic is coming to an end. This week we combined our learning with Easter and began planning a story about a rollaway chocolate egg that didn't want to be eaten. We are learning about the meaning of Easter and new life, so on Friday we shared Hot Cross Bun.
Next week is our Easter Fayre Craft afternoon on Wednesday afternoon.
