This week the seagulls worked hard to write their setting description of the forest. They made sure to include appropriate adjectives to describe the nouns. They also ensured they had all punctuation required to make a super sentence! Miss Barker and I were extremely proud of the work they produced.
This week we continued with our place value learning. We continued develop our knowledge of tens and ones. We learnt to partition numbers into tens and ones using a part-whole model. Following this, we worked on comparing groups of objects - first using the correct vocabulary, then moving onto using the greater than, less than and equal to symbols.
The children continued to develop their understanding of history and how things change over time this week, specifically focusing on toys from the 90's. The children learnt that over time toys have changed in many ways. However, they also discovered that some of the toys they play with are the same as the toys their parents might have played with.
The children had lots of fun investigating their sense of taste!
The children enjoyed tasting foods with different tastes such as salty, sweet, sour and bitter.
