In Numeracy, we read the story of 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 and we practiced our number formation of these numbers both independently and with the teacher. We engaged in some counting games, including a game where we had to count dots on apples and put them in the correct fruit basket. We also revised numbers after and introduced numbers before, using a number line.

“A 1 and a 0 is 10. I drew the number 10 in my little booklet.” – Faith
“I liked finding the right card to put in the basket with a number on it.” – Sarah
In Literacy, we revised the sounds s, a, t, i, p and n. We began to build CVC words using these sounds for example sat, pan, tin etc. We also wrote basic sentences using our character names from the ORT books and drew pictures to match.
“We went to the library to get our new books. I chose a mountain one.” – Oscar
“We had to use a full stop at the end of our sentence.” – Faith
“I drew a pan because I read p-a-n.” – Maati
In Health and Wellbeing, we read a story called We work hard…we don’t waste time. We discussed the key points in a circle time activity and identified things we can do to look after our classroom.
