Spelling is fun! 25 September

Today we have been practising this week’s spellings by making the words out of blocks.

Getting muddy! 20 September

After spending the first few weeks of term learning how to be archeologists, the children decided to conduct their own ‘Big Dig’ today. 


In Maths, we have started the term by working on our counting skills! So far we have counted cubes in the sandpit, sticks from the nature area, pebbles from the water tray and pompoms using tweezers from our Finger Gym.  Our Early Years pupils have been counting up to 20 and Year 1 have been learning to count up to 100.  In Year 2, we have been working on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
