Our P.2 topic this term has been Sticks and Bricks. In the Playroom, P.2K boys and girls recently put on puppet shows acting out the Three Little Pigs story and of course the big bad wolf came along too! We made furniture for our shoe box houses and have been busy constructing bigger models using Large Lego and Spongy Bricks.
Back in the classroom, our Learning Centre activities have included sorting different house types, making collages and investigating the properties of building materials. We worked in pairs looking closely at, touching and describing bricks, plastic piping, pieces of wood etc. We were wondering why bricks are usually cuboid shape and piping cylindrical? So during Maths task board time we carried out a shape investigation to discover which solid shapes we can roll, slide or build with and why.
