Maths - Subtracting from 20.

This week in Maths, we are learning how to subtract from 20 using a number line. The children really enjoyed making a physical number line, and placing the correct amount of jumps backwards to work out some different subtraction sums. The children got to use this during their adventure time learning to consolidate the learning. They loved it!  

INDIA - Geography 

To consolidate our learning in Geography all about India, the children were really lucky to have a parent volunteer come in and talk to them all about what it is like to live there. The children sat really respectfully and listened to all the wonderful things that were shared with them. They had some amazing questions and really enjoyed their experience.  

Time for Tea!

 As part of our focus on life in India, the Robins and Finches have been exploring how tea is made. As part of the process we had a tea tasting session! We were learning how to write and follow simple instructions using: 

  • A Title
  • Bossy Verbs
  • Numbers to start 
  • Short, snappy sentences 

Perhaps your child could tell you how to make a cup of tea safely? 

The Lightbox Gallery and Museum

Today the children had a fantastic opportunity to visit the Lightbox Gallery and Museum in Woking.  The children got to further their learning of Materials and the staff were really impressed with their knowledge so far. The children were all really well behaved and had a great experience making their own little art galleries using recycled materials. The staff were exceptionally helpful and fantastic with the children. The children really enjoyed going on a coach and did very well at walking safely and following our school rules of ready, respectful and safe. Well done Finches and Robins :)
