Nanticoke Class has had a busy beginning to the year. We have started our new topic ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’ and have been fascinated learning about what animals eat, how animals are different and how to classify them into groups.
In mathematics, we have been using our knowledge of numbers to 20 to write different types of number sentences. We have been practising how to write numbers, starting in the right place and going in the correct direction. In English we have particularly enjoyed learning the stories ‘Mog the Forgetful Cat’ and the ‘The Tiger who came to tea’. We have written sentences about our favourite stories and used drama to retell parts of the story. We have been working hard to form letters correctly and use full stops, capital letters and finger spaces to structure sentences.
During our Health and Hygiene day, we had a special visit from a nurse who showed us the importance of washing our hands. We used a special machine that showed us the germs on our hands that we cannot see.
