This week we have been looking at all things 'The Snowman', it has been a truely wonderful week eploring this wonderful story. in our Literacy we have been begining to write short captions about the characters in the snowman and we have also been labeling the different parts of him. We created a list of vocbaulary to describe the setting and explored the feeling of ice to help us generate some wow words which it definatly did, for example sparkly, cold, frosty, slippery, shiny, wet and two children said 'translucent and transparent' which stimulated great discussion.
We have been looking at 3D shapes in maths and trying to find spheres, cubes, cuboids, cones, pyramids and cylinders around out school, we have also beeing looking at which shapes slide, which rol and which do neither and why.
We also had our christmas party nad say a very special visitor. It has been a truely magical week which has been packed with work and fun.
