Deep in the Indian Rainforest!

This week ended with Cober performing our story about How Tiger got his Stripes. Magnificent, they remembered the actions and tricky phrases well. We are now focused on creating our own characters and explaining how they changed from a dull animal to a colourful one. Some great ideas involving magic leaves and clouds are being developed! Next week we will complete our plans and write our own story, trying to include some of the language from the original tiger story.
Our maths was based on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s using money and weights. This is all linked to times tables, which we have also been practising. Our puzzle on Friday was tricky and we had to use multilink and jottings to help us find animals to balance the tiger! Well done to Jack who solved the puzzle without any equipment, supersonic counting!
This week we also looked at Rangoli patterns and tried making our own with different media. Rice was messy but all of them very effective. Finally we started our sewing on our explorer bags! Thanks again to Lyn who is an expert with a needle! It is going to be a slow process but there are already some experts in the making. Well done to Jessica who was very independent!
Next week is national sports week, so we will be out doing 20 minutes of sport every day, obviously training for sports day and race for life!IMG_3536.JPGIMG_3538.JPG
