We had such a great week! We had our school trip to the pig sanctuary, and we had the best time!

For example: we can share 20 into 2 groups of 10, 4 groups of 5, 5 groups of 4 and 10 groups of 2. Next week we will explore the clock and learn how to tell the time  (recognise the minute and hour hands, O'clock, half past and intervals of time).

Science- This week in science, we made our own rain gauges to measure how much it rains over the next couple of weeks. We will be recording this information in tables. We discussed how the results would be different in different places in the world and why - such as in Africa and the Amazon Rainforest.
