The children discussed their favourites and described the flavour of each food. We also learnt about how our noses work. The children experimented with pestle and mortars in the tuff tray, grinding herbs into water to enjoy the different aromas of each one – we investigated basil, rosemary, mint and thyme. In music, we enjoyed watching the story of ‘Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf’ played by Alexander Armstrong and The London Mozart Players. The children especially enjoyed hearing how the instruments helped in the telling of the story.
In mathematics this week we have been representing the numbers 6, 7 and 8 and thinking of the different ways we can make each of these numbers. We have also been looking closely at money and counting out pennies.
On Friday we enjoyed drawing alongside illustrator Liz Million. She loved that recently we had been thinking our polar animals and showed us how to draw our very own perfect penguin!
Next week our topic is Dinosaurs.
