We did lots of writing and investigating into dinosaurs, moas, tasmanian tigers and taniwha (link to matariki) earlier in the term. We discovered what these creatures ate, how they lived, how they caught their food, and became very good at using adjectives to describe their bodies! Our art for art attack was integrated into our inquiry- very scary dinosaurs!!
For our inquiry into toys, the children got to experience different toys to gain a perspective of how children kept themselves entertained in the 'old days' without electronic devices.
We learnt how to use
- Marbles and shooters- a favourite!
- Knuckle bones
- String games- another favourite!
- Hopscotch made with chalk and mud- another favourite!The children have been creating their own at lunchtimes
- Elastics- another favourite! Also a keen one to play now at lunchtimes
