Welcome back and I hope you all had a lovely break.
This term we have had some new friends join us in our classroom and we have been helping them to learn all about our independent learning time.
We have hunted for bugs, enjoyed exploring our maths skills and shown how good we are at playing together and taking turns.
We have started looking for bugs whilst we are outside to find out where they might be living. We think it might be too cold for them to come out and play, so we had a look in the bug houses to see if they were hiding.
How many different bugs can you find in your garden or at the park?
We even pretended to be bugs and hide in the big house.
"I'm in the house, look!"
It has been very windy, we were very excited to see all our windmills turning around.
We pretended we were the wind and blew them to make them turn faster.
We have become very good at starting a game of tennis, we are even able to hit the ball to each other!
"Look, I hit to you!"
Here we are using a shuttlecock.
What games do you like to play outside?
We have become very excited about number this week. Whilst outside we have found that you can find and use numbers everywhere!
"Ten! And I got ten"
Using pliers we picked up sticks, then counted them to see how many we had.
"I got four, one more is five. Look I now have five!"
We love jumping and landing on the number snake, then seeing which number we have landed on, sometimes we help each other to recognise the bigger numbers.
See if you can spot any numbers when you are at the shops.
We have been threading numbers and telling each other which number we are threading, we have even been putting them in number order starting from zero.
"I'm threading the number two, it's white"
We enjoy learning with each other and help each other with resources and taking turns.
What toys could you share with a friend?
