Rumble in the Jungle 25.11.20

Rumble in the Jungle!

We've had a fun week of learning based on the story Rumble in the Jungle by Giles Andreae!


The children have been making models of animals from the book with play dough, Sticklebricks and Duplo, they've been sorting animals into their different categories and finding Africa in the atlas! We have also been learning the names of the other 6 continents using a fun song! Perhaps you could ask your child about them? 


In Maths this week, we have been learning to find one more and adding using lots of different resources. We have been using part, part wholes, ten frames and objects to find our answers and represent our problems. 


We have been having lots of fun in phonics learning lots of new sounds and practising our reading and writing! 


In our Forest Friends session we planted daffodil bulbs this week! We look forward to nurturing them and seeing them grow!
