The children have continued their learning about birthdays this week. We have been making birthday cakes, cards and hats.
We learnt about birthdays in different countries and had a go at singing ‘Happy Birthday’ in some of the languages that our families speak.
We read our key text, ‘It’s my birthday’ and discussed what we need to buy and do in order to make a birthday cake. Later in the week we bought the ingredients and made a real cake for the boy in the story.
In maths we talked about the importance of sharing. Using our cake mixture, toys and party food, we thought about ways to share with a friend – in order to make things ‘fair’.
In R.E this week we have been learning about the important message that the Angel Gabriel gave to Mary, and we decided to make some wonderful angels for our classroom to remind us of this.
