In our Maths lessons, we have been learning about place value and addition and subtraction. We have been counting, ordering object and numbers and have started to place numbers on a number line. We have also learned how to use ‘whole-part’ models, which has helped us understand that two numbers can be added in any order to find the total.
Our first topic in Science was about our bodies and our senses. We started off by creating life-size pictures of ourselved and labelling different body parts. We then enjoyed uses our senses of smell and taste to identify different food items.
This half term we have already started thinking about Christmas and how people prepare for it. We have ordered the events in the Nativity story and Reverend Rachel came in to talk to us about what happens in church during the period of Advent.
We began the year by learning skills for different ball games and applying these to football. We are now focusing on gymnastics and dance during our PE lessons and we have loved finding lots of different way to create shapes with our bodies.
