Messy play is one of the best ways to learn. Giving children the freedom to make a ‘mess’ allows them to focus on process over product. There is no restricting end result just endless possibilities. This type of play helps children to develop courage and confidence to be curious, make their own discoveries, problem solve, have a go and keep trying. This week in Purple class we have enjoyed getting messy!
You can draw the shapes you see, write a list of the shapes or make a tally chart like the one below.
In Science we have been looking at trees and plants. As part of your home learning this week you will be getting a Tree Hunt sheet. Over the half term you could go on a walk around your local area/park to see how many different trees you can identify.
This week is the last in a busy half term so make sure you also take some time next week to relax and enjoy your time off. We look forward to seeing you all in June for the start of the next Summer Term!
