It has been truly AMAZING to have our wonderful classroom full of fabulous children this week. They have all come back to school eager to learn and really delighted to see their friends and teachers again. We have had a really busy week getting back in to our class routine and we began our learning by looking at the book 'What we'll build' by Oliver Jeffers. We explored different ideas the children had about what they could build then they worked in teams to make their creations.
Continuing on from building houses we also thought about measuring from the story and the children had to put my tools in height order from the tallest to the smallest. This was quite a challenge but they all persevered and had some very good reasoning discussions for their final decisions.
We also planted some sunflower seeds and thought about what a flower needs to grow. The children's were very knowledgeable and knew all of the facts but my favourite answer was "They need love."
As you can see we have had a very busy and enjoyable first week back in class and I can't wait to let you know what we have been up to next week.
Have a lovely weekend,
The first week of school is always a whirlwind of activity and excitement! Great to hear that everyone is settling in nicely and getting creative with building projects.
