We have been learning about halving this week, using multilink blocks. It been pretty tricky but we're getting the hang of it now! We are continuing to practise counting objects up to 20 reliably, as this is what was tripping some of us up when we were trying to halve numbers practically. Please practise this at home if you can!
In our enhanced provision areas, we have been carrying out lots of magic activities that we planned in our COOL time session. COOL stands for 'Choose Our Own Learning'. In the 'tuff spot', we have been using mini broomsticks to dust away magic glitter to find 'oo' words and then putting any words we find that are real into our cauldron. In the creative area, we have been making potions in the playdough. In the literacy area, we have been writing adjectives to add to our own spells and potions recipes. In the numeracy area, we have been making symmetrical witches' hats. Our favourite however is the role-play area, where we have been pretending to be witches and wizards.
