Stack, Slide or Roll
Maths! We have been exploring 3D shapes and deciding if they stack, slide or roll. It has been a great way to get children talking about 3D shapes, how they look and their properties.

Counting in twos, five and tens
In maths this week we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and applying this to solve different problems. To build our understanding of multiplication and times table facts we created arrays and discovered fact families.

Dance
This week we have started a new dance unit during our indoor PE lessons. This unit is all about the circus! The children really enjoyed developing their throwing and catching skills with a juggling move and practiced a really tricky balance as if they were on a tightrope.
