We have been working hard on our maths development this term. We have been learning about the cardinal rule of counting. We have been working extremely hard learning about different ways to count up to six. Did you know that you can count pretty much anything? You can count counters, bricks, people or even claps. It is very important to follow the rules of counting.
You must count slowly, pointing at one object a time. It is also a good idea to line up the objects so you don't count any twice.
This term we have also been busy making some yummy chocolate conkers. We talked about what the words ‘recipe’ and ‘ingredients’ mean. We looked at the recipe and talked about what ingredients we need. Then we discussed the importance of hand washing.
The children had a go at making their chocolate conkers in small groups. Their first job was to wash their hands! Secondly they crushed the biscuits and mixed them with mascarpone. Next, they had to roll their mixture into a ball, ready to go in the fridge. We had so much fun doing this activity! The chocalate conkers tasted delicious!!!
