We did a lot of talking about colours. We used construction toys to make flowers in the garden.

Marble Run was a very popular activity. Again we talked a lot about colours. We used playdoh balls instead of marbles because teacher thinks that is safer.

We had another chance to talk about colours when we played the fishing game. We also learned about plurals. You say ‘one fish’ but you also say ‘two fish’ or ‘lots of fish’.
