Today, Thursday 22 November, during World Around Us, we were making a toy from the past a cup and ball. Some of us were doing a Science experiment to find out what happens when we add soda and vinegar to hot chocolate.
Today we had a very interesting visit from Linda at Down Museum. There was not a battery in sight or a screen! She brought in lots of toys from the ‘olden days’ and shared her knowledge on how the toys were made, what they were made from and gave us a little insight into what life was like for children a long time ago. Linda allowed the children to play with these very delicate and precious toys giving us a real experience of toys from long ago. We have thoroughly enjoyed our morning and look forward to our next topic of ‘Toys’.
As part of World Around Us, P2C/M we were making a family tree today. Some of us applied this later on in our play. Take a look at Logan Jamison and Hollie illustrating their grandfathers in play dough.
We had great fun ordering numicon tiles and challenging our friend to find the missing numbers that we had hidden. Have a look at what Zach and Michael were up to!
We were very busy washing clothes today and taking advantage of the good drying day that it was!
At the craft table we are designing our own clothes catalogue.
