Bumblebee Class have had a brilliant start back after half-term!
They have been amazing at blending words in their phonics this week and are becoming increasingly confident in doing so. Our new phonemes this week have been ‘b’ and ‘h’.
In Maths we have been investigating the numbers 1,2 and 3. We have linked these numerals to CBeebies Numberblocks which the children have loved. The children have been learning to make the numbers in different ways and they have been introduced to subitising. Subitising is when we look at a group of objects and know how many there are without counting. The children have been practising subitising through memory games.
In Topic we have learnt how and why we celebrate Bonfire Night. We looked at the story of the Gunpowder Plot and the children had lots of questions! We talked about how there were no cameras or movies from 400 years ago so we can only see what these people were like in paintings.
