Wow! What a busy first few weeks we have had since starting the new school year. The children have already learnt lots of new things.
We have enjoyed the Elmer story in English. The children have acted the story out and imitated it. So we started with a patchwork elephant called Elmer and now have a spotty tiger called Strike.
In Maths we have been working on number bonds to 10 using a part whole model and 10 frame.
We have been on a nature walk looking for natural materials. The children found lots of different things like leaves and sticks. They really enjoyed doing this and were very enthusiastic when they had found something interesting.
Our trip to Sudbury Hall was fantastic. The children had a great time looking at and playing with the different toys. They played with toys old and new. We discussed about the different materials each toy was made from and how they would play with them. The children had to sort out the toys into three groups regarding how the toys moved.
