Dad Mad!

This week in Newgate we have been focusing on the World Cup.

We have spent the week learning about what the World Cup is and when it happens. The children each designed a beautiful football last week for homework and we shared their ideas in circle time. We looked at what we liked about each design and what wanted to learn more about the world cup. Some fantastic ideas Newgate!

We also spoke about the role of a football kit, how it represents the country and also how it shows if they have won the world cup before by the addition of stars on the front of their shirt. The children then wanted to design their very own football kit; some children chose paint to get a more vivid colour and they all looked amazing.

We carried out a shape investigation this week to find out which 3D shape makes the best football. After much trail and error we decided on a SPHERE!

This week hasn’t just been filled with sport but also the celebration of the father figures in our lives. We hope all father figures are celebrated on Sunday as we have celebrated them this week.

Please refer to the homework blog and thank you for your continued support.
