This week in maths we are learning to group objects. We have talked about equal and unequal groups and have now started learning about groups of 2’s, 5’s and 10’s
Today we used socks and objects to help us make pairs. Lots of children confused the number of objects with the number of pairs so we will continue to work on this.
Ideas to practice at home
Sorting socks into matching pairs and counting the pairs
Find pairs of objects around the house
Find pairs of objects on the body eg 2 eyes and say how many pairs
F2 have continued to enjoy playing in provision and developing areas. After our visit to the woods, we have been learning about burrowing and tunneling animals. We’ve turned our reading area into a rabbit’s burrow and enjoyed building mole and rabbit tunnels in our digging area.
We have created some beautiful artwork this week. Children have enjoyed sketching and painting characters from Little Red Riding Hood. We are getting really good at mixing the colours we need. We hope you will look out for our art work around our classrooms as we’re really proud of it!
We have been practicing retelling the story of Little Red Riding.
Here are some of us telling the first part
Last week we learnt what it meant to be a crew. These are the ideas that the children came up with.
Lots of industrious children in Lego club today. The children were able to make models fastening their chosen equipment together. Some children also used other equipment to build with. The behaviour was fantastic and we had some lovely conversations. Looking forward to next week.
We have started learning about Little Red Riding Hood.
Some of us have been baking scones to take to Granny’s house.
Some of us have been playing in small world re-telling the story.
F2 were so excited to meet the Mayoress of Doncaster. We enjoyed telling her about our new expedition and invited her to unveil our information board in Sandal Beat woods in April. We hope she can make it!
