In Literacy, we’ve been reading Walking through the Jungle. We had lots of fun using actions to help us remember the story. Click here to watch us!
The book led us onto learning about rainforests and where they are in the world. We learnt about different types of animals and why tropical rainforests are so warm.
Ask your child if they can remember a fact about rainforests.
In Maths, we continued to develop our understanding of composition of numbers to 10 through games and practical experiences, such as investigating different ways to represent 10 sausages from the counting rhyme, ‘10 Fat Sausages’. Composing and de-composing numbers involves the children investigating part–part–whole relations, e.g. seeing that 7 can be made of 5 and 2 more. We used our fingers, Numicon and counters to help us explore this.
We finally got to make fruit kebabs!
They were so excited when they saw the fruit on Monday morning.
They loved their fruit kebabs that much, they asked for more!
On Tuesday, Mrs Rippon and AM picked two radishes from our vegetable patch. They washed them so we could try some at snack time. Let’s just say it wasn’t very popular!
