This week we have been measuring everything! We spent the beginning of the week talking about long, short, tall and small. The children were comparing different things from around the classroom and using cubes and footprints to measure them. At the end of the week we started weighing things. We enjoyed using the scales the find out which things were heavy and light. We even used kitchen scales and checked which number they went up to.
When we haven't been doing Maths, we've still been very busy. The children have enjoyed singing and dancing and gave a beautiful performance of '5 Little Ducks.' The children have also been doing lots of their own writing. We are very proud of how they are using their sounds from our Read, Write Inc sessions to have ago all by themselves. It would be wonderful if they tried some writing at home, we love to see their pictures and writing! On Friday we had lunch in the classroom. The children thought it was brilliant fun! They were so grown up and helped tidy up afterwards.
We hope you have a wonderful break over the half term holiday. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 21st February for more exciting learning as we start our 'Food Glorious Food' topic.
