Last term, Room 10, as part of their topic project, were exploring the story “A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea”!
We’ve explored fast and slow with movement games in class, to link with the lyric “grows at speed”. We’ve investigated capacity with a range of containers with water and other sensory resources, including several containers with holes in, to build our understanding of of the hole in the story. We’ve played with light (including with adapted switches so we could control them) and reflective materials to support understanding of one story feature – the sun!
Alongside this we’ve been busy with a wide range of broader learning. We loved choosing pancake toppings for pancake day and our science project for that week involved trying to get felt “pancakes” to our target, which was great fun! A particular highlight of the last few weeks has been sessions on the adapted bikes with Salvi from P.E. – the effort and enthusiasm from the whole class has been fabulous!
