This term the Little Owls are thinking about whether something is powered by batteries or electricity and how to operate simple switches.  We had a great time investigating the lights and decided that they were battery operated.  The children knew that computers and tv’s are operated by electricity which “comes from the power station!”
The Little Owls have been working hard on our little garden; pulling up weeds, turning over soil, planting strawberries and herbs then watering them.  We talked about what the plants would need to grow and how we had to look for flowers on the strawberry plants.  We are hoping to grow some strawberries to eat for our snack!
The Little Owls have been exploring the properties of shape, identifying the number of sides and corners each one has and learning their names.  We then had a go at using the shapes to create pictures!
