This week we are going to be thinking about community. We will start this topic by looking at some of the artwork that has recently been developed to pay tribute to everyone in the community during this difficult time. We will be thinking about how we can use different tools and materials to create fantastic works of art. We are aiming to display these along the whirly path. If you are at home please feel free to send us a photo of your artwork and we will add these when complete. I have included our chosen artwork below.
Although these will be our starting inspiration every child will have the chance to make their artwork unique by using different materials, words, ideas and images.
We will be sharing lots of discussion around:
- people who help us
- how we stay safe
- What/who makes us feel happy?
- what is a community?
- which communities do we belong to?
Last week we explored groups and challenged ourselves to double the number by counting and dividing objects, this week we re going to look at how those groups change when we share objects. We will look at problems that involve sharing for example what happens when you have one cake and there are two people? How could you share this fairly? This is a great activity to repeat regularly when playing games and sharing cards or counters, when sharing food such a s sweets, apples, cake and pizza or when taking turns and exploring the concept of fair.
