Welcome to Class 3!
In our assembly we shared a lot of different things that we have been learning in class. We showed how to send and receive a ball, we sang two action songs, we showed some artwork and then acted we out the story of Elmer. We had fun dressing up as elephants and other jungle animals.
We learnt about the artist George Seurat and how he used the technique of Pointillism to create pictures. This is really difficult and takes a very long time to do.
So instead of creating pictures we used cotton buds and paint to create our names using only dots. It was good fun!
In Science we have been learning about the Human Body. We had fun sticking labels on to one of our classmates to name the parts of the body!
We then talked about the main organs inside our bodies, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach and intestines. We learnt about what each organ does. We also learnt that our rib cage protects many of our organs.
In Maths we have been naming 2D shapes such as triangles, squares, rectangles, ovals, semi-circles, pentagons, hexagons and octagons. We played a game where we had to sort the shapes by different criteria. We had to each place our shape inside the hoop if it met the chosen criteria or outside the hoop if it didn't!
We have “Choosing Time” on a Friday afternoon where we can choose what games and activities to play with. We love building things with the construction kits as well as drawing and making crafty things. We enjoy playing with the dolls and reading books.
