International links and discovering patterns in nature!
We are currently using focusing devices such as magnifying glasses to investigate the world around us and observe the fine detail on natural and everyday objects. Following on from our discussion on repeated pattern, the children were asked to find repeated patterns on the objects collected. They were then asked to draw replicas after studying objects closely with a magnifying glass. The children were surprised by the patterns they discovered!
We had great fun, looking at the World map this week in our topic lesson. The children were asked to write down all the countries that they were connected to; whether by heritage, family, friends or holiday destinations! We were amazed by how many countries there were connected to our class!

Here is an idea for a half-term activity: BUG HOTELS!
We had great fun creating these natural environments for insects to live in around our school grounds!
