Our focus for the month of May is Maths.
We call this our Monster Maths month.
We began by asking all of the children what 'Maths' means. Some children shrugged their shoulders and said 'I don't know', but when I showed them some things we use for Maths like the number line, counting cookies, pattern penguins and a dice we had lots of ideas.
'Numbers!'- Max 'Counting!'- Lily 'Colours!'-Skyava
'1,2,3,4,5,6'- Charlotte 'How many altogether'- Sophie
We began by making a shape monster using 2d shapes. We had to explain which shapes we were using and count how many arms or legs or eyes we were going to give to the monster.
We have also began our daily mile this fortnight.
The daily mile is an initiative to promote healthy lifestyles and tackle childhood obesity.
You can visit the website by typing into your google search 'daily mile' or at www.thedailymile.co.uk.
We have exercised on the MUGA, walked, jogged and run around the school field, walked to the library and played games. We really enjoy it and have made up a song to accompany our walk.....it goes like this.....
Everywhere we go
(Everywhere we go)
People wanna know
(People wanna know)
Who we are

So we tell them

We have also celebrated 2 birthdays this week.
