This week in topic we learnt all about different animals and how they grow up. We started by learning about animals and their young. Next we learnt about the life cycle of a frog and butterfly. We had lots of fun thinking of different actions for each part. Then we finished the week by reading the very entertaining story ‘Tadpole’s Promise’. We really enjoyed discussing the story structure and putting it on to a story mountain. Finally we came up with lots of fabulous descriptive vocabulary that we are going to use in our own stories next week.
In maths we started the week by practising counting in 2s. We used numicon to help us and noticed patterns in the numbers that we counted. Next we practised counting in 5s and learnt all about odd and even numbers. Finally we learnt how to count from 0 in steps of 3. Again, we used the numicon to spot patterns and used our knowledge to solve problems.
