In English we have been working on understanding how bullet points help us to organise information in non-fiction writing.
We made a list of verbs we had found in a piece of non-fiction writing about penguins.


In Maths we have been using tens and ones to make larger numbers and trying to learn that each digit in a two digit number tells us how many tens and ones make the number.


We have tried hard to show that we really understand what a number means. 

In our topic work we are have been thinking this week about the different clothes we might need for a trip to the Polar Regions.
We had to sort the pictures of clothes. Some of us worted into Seasons, some sorted into types of clothes, and some sorted into girls and boys clothes.

In English we continue to work on our non-fiction writing. 
We have discussed the use of titles and practised our reading by matching sentences to titles. We also had to really concentrate on our handwriting and decide which sentences went with the different titles. 
We have also been learning about verbs. They are doing words. We shared the verbs that a penguin can do, such as jump, slide, swim, waddle and lots more!


In Maths we have been practising using a ten frame to draw, recgnise and compare amounts ot twenty.
Here we are practising using a ten frame. 

We have been comparing amounts, improving our counting and then working out how many more or less. 
Try these questions


Here is Lily, she has ordered the different amounts shown on these pictures.


Here is Ruben He counted really carefully and ordered his pictures really well from the samllest to greatest. 


We are enjoying extending our learning about The Polar Regions.
