Look at what we have achieved last week…..

This week, we discovered something very exciting ! A fairy door appeared in our outside area!! We left several letters to see if the fairies would see and the next day we received a letter back!! We were SO excited! Our new neighbours are a fairy called Bluebell and a Elf called Midge. We look forward to getting to know them over the next few weeks.

In Maths, we have been learning how to find one more. We used objects and physically put one more object into a set and then counted them. This helped us understand that one more meant adding one more object on. We then used the number line to understand how adding one more means jumping up the number line- it is the next number.

On Friday, we had a PARTY! We spent all week planning it. We made to do lists, wrote cards and invitations and even made some yummy cakes. We were celebrating Lionel and Turbo’s 5th birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our party. We danced, played games and ate cakes. Yummy, yum, yum!
