This week we have been continuing our travels around the world, and now that we are back from Australia, we’ve gone to Scotland.
We’ve been seeing some of the beautiful, craggy countryside, learning how to make Scotch pancakes, weaving a tartan pattern and meeting some of the residents. Our favourite Scot so far is Nessy, the Monster that lives at the bottom of Loch Ness. None of us have quite seen her, (or him?) but we have a pretty good idea what s/he looks like: we’ve got loads of pictures and models that prove s/he exists!
In Maths we have been exploring how to show the number bonds up to 10, using a ten frame with counters of two different colours. At first we have to count the number of red and yellow counters we put on a ten frame to work out how many there are of each colour. But gradually we are getting better at knowing that if the ten frame is full, and 3 of the counters are red, we know without counting that there must be 7 yellow counters. Amazing!
We are so impressed with the learning that is happening at home, and particularly impressed with the parents and carers who are working so hard to make the experience as positive as possible for their children. Thank you and well done to all of you!
