This week we introduced our new Unit of Inquiry, thinking about the Central Idea that 'we move for different purposes.' The children were asked what they thought this meant and what we might find out about and they came up with the following ideas -
- moving your hands
- old people use a stick to move
- animals move on 4 feet
- some animals don't have feet, they slither
- bus, train, bike, scooter, motorbike, truck, car
The children were given a mannequin to explore and think about how it moves. They talked about the different sports or positions they moved the mannequin into and made connections to their own bodies and experiences.
