Welcome to Hedgehog Class!
This week the children began their new topic of 'People Who Help Us'. They have enjoyed finding out about doctors, dentists, teachers, firefighters and police officers. They have a new role play area in the classroom of a police station and they have been busy making badges and writing crime reports as well as taking lots of phone calls! On Monday they had a mystery to solve when they tried to work out who might have pushed Humpty Dumpty off the wall.
In maths the children found out all about the number 8 and they have really been enjoying making numberblocks using unifix cubes and eye stickers.
Please do keep up the practise with name writing at home if your child still needs help with this. You could always pick one or two letters to focus on.
Next week in maths we will begin to measure the length of various items. You could try comparing two objects at home with your child and use the language of 'longest, shortest, longer and shorter'.
