We have had a busy week exploring different shapes and thinking about new vocabulary, such as polygon, quadrilateral, parallel lines, right angles and symmetry. The children sorted shapes based on their properties and presented information about different shapes to each other. They also explored tangrams and how to turn, flip or rotate seven 2D shapes to make different shapes and pictures. The children had great fun trying to solve the puzzles and had to use commitment and problem solving skills to find the solutions!
We drew our Unit of Inquiry on How the World Works to an end by revisiting our initial thinking and questions. Through exploration of the Key Concepts 'Form', 'Causation' and 'Connection', the children identified how their thinking had changed, stayed the same or had grown. They worked together to write up their knowledge and then present it to the class. I was very impressed with their level of knowledge and the amount of progress the children had made, and most importantly, with their ability to reflect on their learning so accurately.
Finally, our week ended with Pyjama Day on Friday to raise awareness, funds and food for the Food Bank. The children had great fun wearing their pyjamas to school. Thank you to Grace's mum for the photos!
