What a brilliant term Hedgehogs. The children have worked so hard, and I think they are fully entitled to a well deserved week off. This week in our learning;
In our Maths learning, we have finished our work on Place Value up to 50. We have been representing numbers from 0-50 using concrete resources and pictures. We have then been working on ordering numbers from 0-50 by using the tens number and the ones number to help us in our ordering. We have then moved on to looking at multiples of 2,5 and 10. We have been learning many songs and Youtube clips to help remember the rules for counting in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s.
Attached are the links to the videos, in case you wish to try and watch these at home.

Ask your child if they can count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10 and write them forwards and backwards.
In our English, we have been finishing our unit on Instruction Writing. The children got to plan, edit and write up their own instructions for building an animal home. The children were really creative and we had examples of instructions from how to build a bird cage to how to build a crocodile pond! Their pieces of work can be found on our Writing Progress Wall.
Well we had a really colourful and creative art lesson this week. As an end of term treat, the children got to create their own Aboriginal artwork by using a technique known as dot painting. We did a style of Australian art because in the past, humans in Australia expressed communication through the form of art, and this was a form of it. With Mrs Ward, the children had to use a cotton bud and some paint and had to paint around an outline of an Australian animal in different colours and patterns. The artwork was amazing and it can be viewed in the bay area of the Hedgehog classroom and a sneak preview can be seen below.
What a great week Hedgehogs, we hope you have a restful half term.
