It was lovely to welcome all of the children back on Tuesday morning. They were all very excited to come in and tell their friends everything they had been doing during the Easter holidays. Many parents emailed in photographs of things the children had done. They then shared them with the whole class and did some writing based on the pictures.
This week we read the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children enjoyed retelling the story and acting it out. We made masks for each of the characters and role played the story with our friends.
In maths this week we worked on number recognition. We had to place numbers 1-20 in the correct order. One of the numbers was then taken away and the children had to work out which number was missing. They looked at the numerals before and after the missing number and worked out the missing number from that.
This week we also had a new session called Relax Kids. This is based on children's health and well-being. It involves 7 different stages from active to stretching and mindfulness. It is a fun filled session and is based around happiness and having fun. This will be a weekly session and the children really enjoyed it and I'm sure that will continue.
Have a lovely weekend Toucan Class.
