Junior Leadership Team

Sunday 08 May 2022

Congratulations to our newly elected Junior Leadership Team representatives and well done to all the children who took part. The speeches were amazing!

This week we will be learning about different habitats and reading the book, ‘Walking through the jungle’. The children will look at atlases and maps and find out about different habitats and the animals that live there.

Our caterpillars are growing fast and we are waiting for them to form a chrysalis.


This week, the children will continue to develop their understanding of the composition of numbers to 10 using different representations. They will deepen their understanding of a ‘whole’ being made up of smaller parts through games and practical experiences, such as investigating different ways to represent 10 sausages from the counting rhyme, ‘10 Fat Sausages’. The children will also use their fingers and 10-frames to explore ‘5 and a bit’ numbers to 10. Composing and de-composing numbers involves the children investigating part–part–whole relations, e.g. seeing that 7 can be made of 5 and 2 more. Using these structures, and making links between them, will provide practical and visual experiences to further consolidate their understanding of the composition of numbers between 6 and 10.
