Week commencing 8th November 

This week we will be continuing our focus on the story 'Biscuit Bear'. We will begin the week by thinking about the different ingredients that were used in the story to make biscuits. We will then write a shopping list of ingredients ready to make our very own biscuit bears. We will explore the different ingredients, talking about what they look like and how they feel before we begin our baking. We will follow the instructions to help us to make our own dough, talking about the different quantities of each ingredient. The children will then be able to decorate their biscuit, before bringing it home to eat. Please encourage your children to share the recipe with you, encouraging them to use time vocabularyl, such as first, next, then, finally. Towards the end of the week the children will all have a go at writing down the instructions.

In maths we will be continuing to focus on the numbers to 4. We will look at the different ways that the numbers can be made up (for example 4 and 0, 3 and 1, 2 and 2) to help the children to gain a deeper understanding of the numbers and their meaning. 

We will be talking about Rememberance Day and making poppies in school with a focus of understanding why we may wear poppies.
