Our New Lanterns

We have been sprucing up our book corner with some new lanterns ...

We dipped long lengths of string into PVA glue and wrapped them around balloons 

Once dry, we painted the balloons
We popped the balloons and hung them from our light in book corner 

Easy peasy! :)

The Long And The Short Of It

At the moment my children are very interested in rulers and measuring. They have been carrying rulers around the classroom and measuring anything of interest, particularly the beans we planted and the worms they found when making mud pies...

They have been comparing objects by length, identifying and recording numbers to 30 (and beyond in the case of a few boys who measured all our furniture with a measuring tape) and discussing the difference between centimetres and metres - All sparked by one boys interest in his dad's measuring tape which he brought into school for sharing!
