KS1 were so excited to take receipt of their Summer expedition final product … a set of round-the-world Top Trump recipe cards!
Our expedition explored the question, ‘what does the food we eat tell us about the world around us?’.
The cards look fantastic and we are only disappointed that we can’t share them with you straight away due to the number of KS1 children currently self- isolating. With this in mind, we will launch the product when we return to school in September and offer everyone the opportunity to purchase their very own set.
In Literacy we are looking at writing lists by writing the letter shapes we know. Can you have a go at writing a list for something? It could be a list of your favourite toys, a shopping list, a list of the people who live in your house, a ‘to do’ list. Whatever you like! Think carefully about what letters look like and what sounds you can hear in words to help you.
In Maths this week we are looking at sharing equally. Can you use objects or drawings to show sharing amounts equally? Use plates and objects to help you.
Can you share 6 biscuits between 3 children?
How many do they all get?
Is it the same?
Is it fair?
We have been practising our addition skills this week in our maths learning, we have been using number tracks and continued our learning with a game of snakes and ladders!
Well done everyone 😊
A big well done to Phoenix for your super home learning using coins to help you subtract and count. A big well done also for putting your pyjamas on by yourself! You are a superstar! 10 HoWL points have been added to Class Dojo!
This week in maths we will be focusing on subtraction. We wonder if you could practise subtracting numbers from 10 (or if you find this super easy…move on to 20).
All you need are some objects, this could be cubes, pasta, cereal, bean bags, toys, play dough – whatever you like! and a hoop. If you don’t have a hoop you could draw a circle using chalk or simply use a piece of paper to count out 10 objects on and then take them away.
Please send a photo of you subtracting at home to [email protected] so that we can celebrate your home learning at Nursery and you will be awarded 10 HoWL points!
Happy learning! 🙂
I hope you have had a wonderful half term break and are excited for all of our learning, play and celebration adventures we have coming up over the next 7 weeks!
This month is Pride month and I would like to share with you my recommended ‘book of the month’ called and Tango makes three. It’s a truly beautiful true story about two very special penguins who live in Central Park Zoo in New York City named Roy and Silo who adopt a baby penguin and make their own very special family. This story reminds us that love is love!
Here are some pictures of my family enjoying the story and the very beautiful illustrations. Maybe you’d like to read this story with your family too?
Are there any books that you’ve read lately that you have loved and could recommend to us?
We had a fantastic story at the end of the day, we loved joining in with our sound effects and learning about the farm!
Don’t forget to record your masked reader video tonight… I wonder what we will read tomorrow?
