One is a Snail, Ten is a Crab.

Saturday 08 June 2024

Welcome  to Summer 2!  Our theme this half term is Seaside and Cities and our first focus book has been One is a Snail, Ten is a Crab by April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre.

This book is a counting book that counts familiar animals and how many legs each one has! We have had lots of fun with this story making up our own lines.

“5 is a snail and a dog!”

“6 is a dog and a man!”

“11 is a snail and a crab or 5 people and a snail!”

“100 is 10 crabs or 100 snails!”

Our word of the week was country the children have really enjoyed using this during their learning.

“I went to another country on my holiday.”

“We live in the country called England.”

Help at home: how many different countries can you name with your grown ups? can you write a list?

Also this week we released our butterflies, Mrs Rippon looked after them for us over the holidays and we had two to set free on Monday. It was great fun to watch them fly!
