w/c 25th November

In English this week we have been learning about questions and ? The children have been thinking about Christmas and have practised saying and writing questions to ask Father Christmas. We have still been working on capital letters, finger spaces and full stops too.

In maths we have been learning about the numbers between 11 and 20. We have been reading and recognising the numerals and the words. The children have been finding different ways to represent the number using numicon, cubes, ten frames and counting equipment. We have started to think about splitting these numbers into ten and ones too, for example 15 is made up of 1 ten and 5 ones. Some children have been finding ways to show this by drawing the numbers.

On Friday we were lucky to have 2 very special visitors. Alison and her guide dog Buncie came to talk to the children about animals who help us. The children learned how Buncie helps Alison with tasks such as crossing the road and moving around without bumping into things. They found out that Buncie has special things to wear when she is working and how she behaves. They also found out about Buncie at home and how Alison looks after her. At the end of the session Alison took Buncie’s working harness off and the children were allowed to stroke Buncie if they wished. What a fun and interesting morning.
