The Early Learning Goals

Summer Term

The children have all earnt a Star Award certificate this week for being so amazing.

The Rainbow Fish

We listened to the story of the Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister and talked about what we had heard. Next we wrote our own sentences about the story.

Maths

We have been looking at numbers larger than 10. Using 10's frames we have been making numbers and seeing that 12 is 10 and 2 more.

Subitising in maths

The children may have come home and told you they were super subitisers. Subitising is when you  look at a small collection of objects and know how many are there without counting. This works with up to five objects. 
The children are shown the photos above and asked, what do you see? How do you see it?
They will reply by saying I can see 2, I can see a 1 and a 1, that’s 2.
When showing 3, they may say “I can see a 1, 1 and a 1, that’s 3. I can see a 2 and a 1, that’s 3, I can see a 1 and a 2, that’s 3.”
Subitising is an essential part of developing number sense and helps the children relate numbers to actual items or groups of items.

Happy New Year

We have lots planned for a fun and exciting term ahead. The children told us they were interested in learning about all things frozen! The Ice Castle is already being enjoyed and we will add photos to this page.
