We have had another exciting and busy week in Owl Class. We would like to thank all of the grown ups who have dedicated their time to helping the children with their sewing project this week. The children are really enjoying learning new skills, such as how to thread a needle and complete a simple running stitch. The felt Christmas decorations really do look amazing and you will be able to come and buy one at the Christmas Market on December 1st.
In Maths this week, we have been learning lots of positional language words. These words help us with direction and also when we are describing the location or position of something. We are trying to remember which is left and which is right, so if you could help your child with this at home, too, it would really help to consolidate this learning. Here are some of the positional words that the children have thought of:
on next to behind left right under over through beside outside inside in front of
in-between forwards backwards around near far underneath on top of ....
We have continued to find out about light and have thought about different light sources. We now know that some sources of light are natural, such as the sun and other sources are man-made, requiring batteries or electricity to function. We found out about a famous man called Thomas Edison who invented the light bulb. We have talked about the impact of his invention on our lives today and also how much light bulbs have moved on and progressed in style. We enjoyed using pastels to draw different light sources for our display board.
Our Christmas play songs are sounding beautiful! We cannot tell you anything else about this though.....you will simply have to come along and watch our performance in December for a wonderful treat and surprise!
