A short but busy week in RF
Friday 11th May | 1 comment
This week seems to have been busier than ever after a very lovely Bank Holiday weekend.
The children have been solving lots of problems in Maths. The stimulus for this was a book called ‘1 is a snail, 10 is a crab’.
In the book there are some animals with different numbers of feet. The children worked out how to make different numbers using a combination of animals. Then they transferred what they had learned to solving similar problems using Numicon. The children thoroughly enjoyed solving the problems and will be able to tell you all about what they did.
Lots of other things have been happening this week including a visit to see the chickens on our farm, finding out about different animals and a game of cricket set up by the children.
Next week in phonics we are learning two new sounds: ‘ure’ and ‘er’ and going over all the Phase 2 and 3 phonemes. In maths we will continue to work on addition and practise recognising and ordering numbers up to 20.
Have a lovely weekend
