"Teen" Numbers

Today we were learning to write and recognise "teen" numbers. We sung a song about "teen" numbers and then we went outside and wrote our "teen" numbers on the concrete with chalk. After that we played a game finding "teen" numbers on the concrete. "Teen" numbers are 13,14,15,16,17,18,19.

Same and Different

Today we wrote the words in, win, sin, pin on the chalkboards. (The children sounded out these words themselves). We talked about what was the same in the words which is I and N. Then we talked about what was different in the words which was the biginning letters W in win, S in sin and P in pin. Look at us below:

Our local police man is coming in to visit us twice this term. He is teaching us about how to keep safe. In our lesson today Constable Carl came in to teach us what to do if we get lost. It is very important for your child to learn their home address, phone number and first and last name. A worksheet was placed in their poem books to help with this.
