R1 loved this story and we had such a brilliant time learning about bicycles that Mrs Addicott kept getting carried away and forgot to take lots of photos....sorry! We also got started with our Christmas Fun! Take a look at our Christmas Fun page to see more snaps!
Making paper chains...round like wheels on a bicycle!
We made the chain of a bike using our maths linking chains...

We love our new Christmas Toy Shop role play...we even filmed in it for our video!
We measured the rim of different sized wheels with cubes and recorded our results!
What a busy week R3 have had! We loved our book 'Mrs Armitage On Wheels' by Quentin Blake and we completed lots of fun activities based around her and her special bike. Here are a few photos from this week for you to look at.

We used our fine motor skills and achieved some good results!
How many linking chains will we need to put a chain on each bike?
We recoded our answers on the clipboards.
We measured around different size wheels using multilink.
The big wheels made us count up to very high numbers.
Using the linking chains to outline this big bike.
It took a long time and plenty of teamwork!
Time to collage and make this bike nice and colourful.
We made our own wheels out of paper plates..
This week our maths was exploring coins. We sorted them into groups.
We used coins to fill each purse with the correct amount.
Our coin rubbings were really effective!

A fun way to make new words.
We used our sounds well!
