Topic - Some children have brought in beautiful snowflakes and artic pictures. Thank you. 

We will still be accepting 'winter art' this week. Perhaps your child would like to paint a snowy picture or create a beautiful snowflake for our home corner. 

 

We have been focusing on learning about the animals that live in the Artic and the Antarctic. For home learning, please research an animal that lives in the North or South pole and support your child to independently write 2 facts about this animal. (Please scribe what your child has written above their writing)

Remember to use finger spaces!

 

RE

We have been talking about celebrations. Please discuss a time that your family celebrated something. You may wish to stick in photos into your child's WOW book or your child could draw a time they celebrated.

 

Maths

We focused on counting in twos this week. We went on a pair hunt around our classroom. This week, please go on a pair hunt at home. Gather the pairs, then count how many pairs you have found. After you could  practice counting in 2s. We have been whispering the odd numbers and shouting the loud numbers. Have a go at this game at home.
