Blowing Milky Bubbles

Today we had fun blowing milky bubbles because it is one of our 'Bb' week activities.
Tatiana took our photos and our video.
We were really excited because our milky bubbles rose above the rim of the cup.
We must have big lungs!

Learning about Symmetry

This week we are learning about Symmetry.
Symmetry is when one shape becomes exactly like another if you flip, slide or turn it. The simplest form of symmetry is reflection or 'mirror' symmetry like this egg shows. We found this cool symmetry activity. Thank you Miss Baker from bakersbeautbunch for this description and activity.

Have a try at home - what symmetrical patterns can you make?
