- About Us
Throughout our topic, 'The Lion King', we have been very busy learning about things to do with Africa. This week we have been focusing our attention on African animals and, in particular, the 'Big Five'. We have learned lots of new facts about the animals and we then went on a safari around school to see what animals we could find. We found a buffalo, a rhino and a lion. We couldn't find the leopard or the elephant so we think they must have been hiding. Whilst on our safari we bumped into Mrs Lupton who taught us how to say 'have a good journey' in Swahili, this was 'Safari njema!' We really did feel like we were on a safari after this.
Throughout the rest of the week we have been getting very creative in the different areas. We have been singing along to some of our favourite nursery rhymes with the puppets...
Whilst also creating our very own musical instruments outside! Look at Joshua with the drum he made independently with anything and everything that he could find outside.
This week during Numeracy we have been looking at 3D shapes. After some initial input the children became experts so we decided to search the school for 3D shapes. The children found lots of different shapes including a cone, cube, cuboid and a sphere.
We worked hard to understand the difference between 2D and 3D shapes!
Firstly, thank you to everybody for the wonderful outfits that the children came in last week. They looked absolutely fantastic and it was brilliant to celebrate World Book Day with aliens, superheroes and nursery rhyme characters.
It has been a very creative week in EYFS as we have explored different sounds as part of our experiment and we even created our very own African shaker. We have been so excited to explore different materials and how they can affect the sound being made.
On Wednesday we were looking at different African instruments and what materials are used to make them. We used rice, dried beans, pasta and some colourful beads to create our homemade instrument.
There has been lots of independent working as well this week. We have been creating different things with the LEGO, look at this cowboy.
Meanwhile, we have also had some very helpful children who have been learning about daily routines of adults. Look at how useful they have been by pegging out the laundry!
