This week...

We will continue to learn about bear facts. We will be using non-fiction books and information pages to help us. We will be learning facts about different types of bears. Can you remember the different types of bears?




We will be making fact books about bears.


In maths we will continue to practise counting in 2s. Can you remember your number bonds to 10? What about 8? 


We will be adding and subtracting using a variety of different methods, including using objects, number lines, fingers, pictures!

We have been learning...

Over the past couple of weeks we have enjoyed the start to our topic about 'bears'. We have read a variety of bear stories including 'Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?' 'Where's My Teddy?' 'We're Going On a Bear Hunt' to name a few! 



Can you retell the stories? What happened?


We have started to learn about different types of bears and are learning the facts about them.  Which is your favourite bear? Can you remember which country they come from?


We have been learning to write sentences using our sounds. We know that we need to remember finger spaces and add a full stop at the end of the sentence. 


In maths, we have been learning about the place value of a number. We have been exploring a variety of ways to 'make a number' and 'what it looks like' using a variety of resources such as numicon, objects, ten frames and dienes.  We have been learning how to solve problems involving ordering numbers. 


We have loved learning to count in 2s.  Have a look at this video to help you remember!

We are also learning to write our numbers as words, see if you can practise at home!






We let our feet do the walking in maths today! What a great way of counting in twos!

Welcome Back!


Welcome back, we hope you have had a lovely break!


We have an exciting start to the new term. Our topic is called 'Why do bears like honey?', we will be learning all about different types of bears, including bears from our favourite books. In maths we will be learning about numbers, place value and adding and subtracting! 


We have an action packed term ahead!
