Our Learning...

The Train Ride

Since we returned to school we have been practising writing labels, lists and captions in our English learning. We have been reading 'The Train Ride' by June Crebbin, all about a young girl on a train journey to meet her Grandma! 


We thought about what we might see out of the train window as we whizzed by the world on our journey and wrote lists about what we would pack in our backpacks. Here are some of our ideas...

Positional Language in Maths

Our first unit of Maths explored Positional Language. We had lots of fun learning the correct vocabulary and using it to describe where the teddy was, for example...

The teddy is under the table.

The teddy is inside the box.

The teddy is on top of the box.


Where is the teddy?

Maths Games

We played lots of Maths games in our first week back to rehearse and reactivate the knowledge we gained in Reception. Dottzi is a fun game where you have to match dice and order them correctly, it's fun against a timer!
