February 2019

We have been very busy again this month.
 
In Maths we have been working hard with are numbers. We have been recognising numbers and matching the correct number of objects. We have been using dice as a practical resource for addition, working together and using counters to work out the answers. We have been using the vocabulary and practicing recording this as a number story.  
 
We have been learning our 'Monkey See Monkey Do' story and carrying out lots of jungle based activities. 
 
We have been talking about our mental health and lots of different emotions. We looked at posters and talked about what the emotion was and discussed times when we might have felt like this. 
 
We have been learning about Chinese New Year. We made lanterns, practiced Chinese writing, learnt about what animal our date of birth represents and made paper chain dragons. 
 
This month we had an open afternoon which was very well attended. It was great to see so many of you, thank you for your support. The children enjoyed working with adults on creative activities linked to books and stories. The children particularly enjoyed the clay monkeys and collage monkeys for our 'Monkey See Monkey Do' story. 
 
In PE we have been balancing on different parts of our bodies. We have been balancing on small and large body parts. We have been thinking about balancing and how gymnasts hold their bodies. 
 
The children have been enjoying the wooden blocks. We have had everything from wooden beds, houses, castles and pop groups with their guitars.
