Week 7 Term 1

This week we have been learning about what to do in the event of an earthquake. I have been very impressed with what the children already know and how they were able to pass this knowledge on to their classmates.
We are now getting into the swing of publishing our writing. The comments that families are leaving in these books are lovely for the children, and for us, to read.

As usual we have been doing lots of letter sound and tricky word practice on whiteboards.....
......and .using our imagination to make amazing creations.

In maths these week we have paired up with a maths buddy to work on maths knowledge skills together. 

With Sam we continued working on using pictographs to answer questions about mini-beasts
An exciting new maths resource  arrived in our classroom this week. We now have our own Numicon set. Pop in and have a look at how we are exploring this in our before school discovery time. Below you can see how we used it to count how many acorns we had collected.

Don't forget to check out the maths display in the entrance area of the class.

Another resource we used for the first time this week was our "Silly Sentence ' game. This helps us to learn about capital letters, full stops and sentence structure, it made us laugh heaps!

In art this week we have started adding the finer details to our portraits. It is great to see this art work developing each week.
On Friday in Buddy Time we started to make balancing robots with our Room 5 Big Buddies.
Finally check out your our Talking Ant posts on the Kidzstuff blog and on the classroom wall as well.
