2D or not 2D, that is the question! Over the past couple of weeks Foundation Stage 2 have been going over 2D shapes. This week we have concentrated on triangles and their properties and made fish using shapes of different sizes. Children were also encouraged to work in small groups and use different shapes to create pictures. They put their imaginations to good use and one group of children made a ‘huge robot’ and another group made a rocket. The children also used shapes as stencils on a whiteboard. These activities all help to further develop their fine motor skills.

Loreto Sustainable School Committee (LSSC) Prof. Daniella Tilbury, Commissioner for Sustainable Development and Future Generations, donated a set of books on Sustainability to the Loreto Convent School library at the beginning of this academic year.
These books are aimed at children of all ages, from our early learners to the eldest in the school and may be borrowed from the library during class library sessions. They are beautifully written and illustrated and provide lots of useful information and ideas to carry out fun sustainable-based activities. Have a look at some members of the LSSC enjoying these gorgeous books.
