This half term we are exploring the Amazon Rainforest. We have been finding out lots of interesting facts about the animals that live there and particularly enjoyed learning about the Red Eyed Tree Frog. For our homework project, we made shoebox rainforests for our class display. We also enjoyed a visit from 'Mark The Ark' who brought snakes, a vulture and even a tarantula in for us to handle!
Our literacy focus is 'Monkey Puzzle' and we have used story language and actions to retell the tale. We have been using the story as a focus for our SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) activities by thinking about the features of sentences.
In maths, we have been busy counting backwards and forwards in 1s, 2s and 10s, adding and subtracting within 20, exploring place value of numbers to 50 and practising our number bonds to 10.
We are also enjoying our weekly visits to St Ives Leisure Centre for our swimming lessons.
