The infant classes are enjoying numeracy week . Since there is so much we wanted to do we have dedicated a fortnight to the theme!
We are investigating signs in the environment.
We are looking at the red for danger signs.
We are thinking about the kind of information the blue signs are telling us about.
We are wondering about the yellow warning signs.
We have looked at signs on construction sites, on walls, on electric gates, in people’s windows, on some letterboxes, inside and outside the school and on the roads. We have found out what shape and colour the signs are and if there is a picture on the sign we try to figure out what it is.
The infants went on a “signs in the environment” walk on Tuesday 29th November and many thanks to the parents who helped us out with that.
To view the powerpoint below just click to open. Then press “Slide show” (in a tab at the top) and then “from beginning” (top left)
We have also looked at signs on the packaging of things we buy and eat. Logos are special signs that companies have for their products. Have a look at this powerpoint to see if you can work out what each image comes from. Why do you think companies use logos? Can you find any more this week?
Click below. Which of these signs does not belong? why?
