Week 2 – One is a Snail, Ten is a Crab
This week, the children have been reading the story One Snail Ten Crabs. We were practising our counting and multiplication skills, from one to one hundred, by using the different feet of the people, animals and insects. We were finding different ways of making 20 using animal pictures. Outside, we were using natural resources to make different numbers e.g. a twig = 1. How many twigs would I need to make 18? A stone = 5. How many stones would I need to make the number 10? We were also using 2D shapes to make the different creatures found in our book.
Week 1: Room on the Broom
We had a brilliant first session in KS1! We read the story ‘Room on the broom’ which is all about a witch who keeps losing her things and some animal friends who help her find them. We had lots of fun making our own broom sticks, wands and magic potions outside. We also used puppets to retell the story in our theatre.
