Caterpillars, symmetry and telling the time

Greetings Platypuses!

This week our focus book has been The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Can you think of a describing word for some or all of the food below? Remember a describing word adds detail and helps whoever is reading our writing to better imagine what we are writing about. E.g. A juicy orange 

  • orange
  • apple
  • plum 
  • cake
  • lollipop 
  • ice cream
  • watermelon
  • a leaf 

In maths we have been learning to tell the time and exploring symmetry

Practise telling the time with your adult, can you tell the o’clocks? Next week we will be learning half past the hour. 

Where can you see symmetry around you? 

Platypuses had a fantastic time at our Maths Open Morning on Tuesday, thank you to all the adults who were able to attend.

I hope you are having  wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog and do some Mathletics!

On Friday it will be our first class assembly which I am very excited about!!! We have already started to learn a song (Tiny Caterpillar Song) and if you have a chance to practise the song the video is below. Platypus adults it would be great to see you there (a text will be sent out) 🙂 

It will be Green Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday this week. 

I look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday! 🙂
