As part of our topic on Africa, the children looked at African necklaces and the patterns used in them. They then created their own necklaces.
On Monday 10th June, Barney from the House of Maths visited Beech Class. He showed the children how some shapes tessellate. The children were then challenged to cover the mats by tessellating different shapes: some were harder than others. They had to make sure tiles of the same colour were not touching.
Beech class have been settling in well since the start of term! We have been enjoying exploring our topic of Weather over the last couple weeks. The children have been busy creating pictures in Art, describing the weather and looking at the recent weather in the UK. We were all very excited whilst looking at different areas of the world on Google Earth and discussing the different weather! Our new weather station in the classroom has also been a big hit!
