Hello and welcome back to our class blog. This week our text of the week has been Charlie Cooks favourite book written by Julia Donaldson. Our number of the week this week has been number 8. Lets take a look at what we have been doing this week.
We started off our week with Remembrance Day. We spoke a lot with the children about the importance of the day and why we wear poppies to show our support. We made a red poppy for the soldiers and a purple poppy for the animals and we have made our own Remembrance display as a reminder.
As always we started off our new number by having a discussion on what can and cannot go on our magic carpet. The children are now becoming more confident with their ideas and we are hearing such fantastic answers and reasoning as to what can go on the carpet.
This week we have had a special visitor in our classroom. We have a new maths bear called Monty. He is a really special bear because he has a birthday every single week when we introduce a new number of the week. The children have loved him and they love singing happy birthday to him. On Monday he will be turning 9 and so I'm sure we will have another song to sing.
We've been working really hard on recognising our number of the week. We have been using our dabbers to catch all of the number 8's on our page, we have been looking for 8s in our classroom and we have perfected holding 8 fingers up.
Have a great weekend.
