Welcome to the Eager Elephants!
Welcome to your class page.
Here you can find out about some of the exciting things that we will be doing this term.
You will also find a list of books that we will be reading and sharing in school.
The Gingerbread Man
We are enjoying the story, acting it out and making a list of the characters. In mathematics we are weighing shopping and learning about longer and shorter. We will also design our own Gingerbread men and bake them. Let’s hope they don’t run away!
We will sing lots of nursery rhymes and make up our own rhyming sentences. In Mathematics we are using our numicon shapes to find the biggest and smallest numbers. In the afternoons we will make clay spiders, spider finger puppets and Humpty Dumpty.
Week 3 and Week 4
In literacy we are writing about Elmer’s colours. In mathematics we are ordering numbers. In the afternoons, we will go on a colour hunt and make a large collage of Elmer the elephant.
Week 5, 6 and 7
In literacy, we will be writing our own nativity story book. We’ll have lots of number and shape Christmas fun! We’ll also be busy singing songs for our Christmas performance, making Christmas decorations and getting ready for our class parties.
We will use our digital classroom to explore and play with the Bee Bots, remote control cars, talking tins, microphones, phones, iPads etc.
We'll play some problem solving games on the Espresso computer site.
