PREP 2 SPORTS DAY
This week the focus has been on the children sorting pictures of buildings into past and present. Questions such as: 'Why do we say it’s in the past or present? How can we find out? What are the similarities and differences of buildings in the past and present?' were raised and discussed. The children noticed that over time the materials as well as the design of the buildings have changed.
Next week we will be looking at specific vocabulary that relates to the passing of time. The children will be encouraged to use words such yesterday, today, tomorrow, before, now and after.
In handwriting the children learnt the correct formation for the letter 'z'. Next week they will begin writing numerals.
You are practising cooperation when you...
