Maths and more

Once again, Kingfishers have been busy. We have been working hard on our handwriting, Y2s are beginning to learn to join the letters, whilst the Y1s have been practising their phonics (sounds!). We have been enjoying the stories of Harry and the Dinosaurs; and have begun writing a version ourselves. In Maths, the Y1 children have been consolidating their knowledge, counting forwards and backwards and making 10, whilst the Y2s have been working on tens and ones, making and breaking 2 digit numbers.

For our topic work, we have been finding out about Mary Anning. She discovered many fossils in Lyme Regis – we’ve had to make our own, as our playground is particularly unlike the Jurassic Coast! Last week we made moving model dinosaurs, using different joining techniques – some people’s had up to 4 moving parts!
