We have had a very busy week in Beaver Class! Our learning has included sequencing the story of The Runaway Pizza!
In maths we have been counting different amounts and matching numbers. Some of us have been using numicon to makes tens numbers too!
We made our own Pizzas in cooking after deciding which toppings we wanted to have.
We have also been exploring “old” and “new” artefacts. We looked at some of Mr. Atkins’ old toys from when he was little – including his X-wing fighter!
We listened to a tape and a record – we found that they play music! We found out how to open a cassette case and where it went in the machine! It was very tricky.
We have also continued looking for signs of Autumn, the leaves have started falling from the trees.
