Foundation children, why don't you have a try telling your grown up the story of man on the moon. Talk about your favourite bits of the story and whether you like the story or not!

Over the next 3 days can you listen to the story and Year 1 and 2 children your job is to create a character profile. Could you draw a picture of Bob. Underneath his picture can you write sentences to tell me about Bob and what his job is and what he does each day. Use the video book to help you with this.

In class with the children EYFS will be talking about the animals they can see on the page and talking about them, naming them and describing them by size, colour, pattern. In Year 1 and 2 the children will be writing about one of the pages in the book and what they see. They will also be making notes to leave for other people on Earth to tell them about what we need to do to keep the planet and its inhabitant healthy and safe. The book focuses on kindness and caring towards others. Here We Are

 

In Maths EYFS are doing lots of counting whilst playing and playing with numbers, comparing and naming. Year 1 children are looing at numbers to 10. They are learning to use a part whole model in maths. part whole model

Year 2 children in maths are looking at place value to 100.  Can you recognise the place value of the numbers to 100? Choose a 2 digit number and write it down. Using the part whole model can you split the number into its tens and ones?
