Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God
Cherry Class Blog
We've had another great learning week in Cherry. In Maths we've been doubling numbers and looked at a doubling machine. Bethany knew how many strawberries we would have if we put four strawberries in the doubling machine, "Eight," she said. During our choosing time Sophie told me, "Four plus four equals eight," reading a number sentence. She found two Numicon fours to match her number sentence. "I wonder what double six is?" Maya asked. she decided to use Numicon to help her find out. After exploring the Numicon and counting the two Numicon sixes she had she found her answer; "It's twelve."
We've been using our phonics to read and write simple words. "B - u -s, bus", said Esme reading the word and matching it to its picture. she also decided to write it as well.
We also read the parable of the Wise and Foolish men and talked about how we can make good choices.
