'Prickly Hay'


Our topic for this term is 'Prickly Hay'. The children will be exploring different types of farm animals and will also be focusing on the story of the Nativity. I look forward to hearing the children's ideas when they return to school!

We will be learning through the six areas of learning and experience. Making sure that all our activities are fun and exciting. I look forward to sharing the children's creations and work with you via Twitter this term.

How can you practise Numeracy at home?

* Practise sequences of numbers in different ways, reciting forwards and backwards, and starting at different points.

* Count in 2's , 5's and 10's!

* Can you read and write numbers to 100? use a 100 square to practise!

* Look at the coins that you have at home. Which coins are these? do you identify them? 

* Go on a shape hunt. Which shapes do I recognise?


We will be learning a variety of different numeracy skills this year and we will be using the outdoors to explore numeracy in fun ways.
