As part of our exploration of shapes, the children discovered the names of various three-dimensional shapes by looking at their properties. Once they had learnt the properties of polyhedrons and prisms, they applied their knowledge as a group and set out naming the shapes – and they were very successful!
During our Natural Sciences lessons, we are focussing on flowering plants. We drew the internal structure of the flower and dissected hibiscus flowers. This helped the children to discover all the parts of the pistil and the stamen that are used to form new seeds.
The children completed their own surveys in class this week and added the information to pie charts. They could choose the topic of their surveys, e.g. Favourite Foods or Sports. They enjoyed the interaction with one another and were very interested in discovering all of their friends’ “favourites”.
