We have hit the ground running with the new half term and our new topics! We have had a fantastic BLUE week, which also included Remembrance Day and Children in Need day.
In Literacy we read the story of Shaun the Shy Shark, a very nervous shark that felt different to the other sharks. Luckily he found a group of other sea animals that also felt different or worried and they helped him to find his confidence. We came up with opposing adjectives to describe Shaun at the beginning and the end of the story and also included some PSHE about how we should be kind to everyone, even if we are different. We also watched the CBeebies Poppy Day animation of the rabbit and created our own speech bubbles for how we thought the rabbit would be feeling during two different parts of the story.
In Maths we have been learning all about money! We are great at recognising the coins and notes and finding the right coins to make an amount. We have begun to learn how to add two different amounts and to find change using a number line. It would be great to practice using a hundred square to add and take away 10 quickly, as well as counting forwards and backwards from any number in 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's.
This week our topic has been PSHE. We have discussed the word 'cooperative' and learnt how we could be cooperative in school and at home. We then thought about how we are all special and unique and that it is great to be different! We decided it would be a very boring Bluebell Class if we all liked the same things or all looked the same!
