Larch and Kingfishers Classes

This week’s learning

This week in Maths we have been learning to use tens frames. These are a great way to work out addition and subtraction and our number bonds. We have also been using them to find ‘families of four’ and representing our calculations using part-part-whole models.

Miss Hawkins also worked really hard over the holiday to get some fantastic fine and gross motor activities ready for us, to help us with our handwriting. We have really enjoyed using these this week and have been doing some great writing.

Our new English book is ‘The boy in a dress’ by David Walliams. We have read the first two chapters and think that it’s a really funny book! We have been thinking about why David Walliams has chosen the words that he has used, and what they mean.

In Music this week we have been learning to join in with different songs and play our percussion instruments quietly and with control.

In circle time we have been talking about how we are feeling, and have discussed the new lockdown and what this means.

We also had a couple of lovely visits from Mrs Vernon-Smith this week, and are looking forward to her next visit!
