Exploring number

Date: 9th Mar 2020 @ 3:20pm

This week we have been continuing to work on our counting and number recognition. To add a little challenge, Penguins had to count how many holes in the numicon and find the matching numbered key to unlock it! This was great for their fine motor too!

We  have also looked at counting objects that can’t be moved, they worked hard on finding a strategy and the  found the correct matching peg!

To continue to develop our knowledge of our body parts as part of our topic we learnt a new song. The bean bag song helped us look at the beats in a word which is great for our phonics as well. We moved around the classroom and had to balance the bean bag on different parts of our body when the song told us too.
