Writing - We have been very busy this week practicing our handwriting. We want to be able to write faster and a little neater so we have been busy working through each letter family. We have found out that their are four letter families - Curly Caterpillar, Long Ladder, One Armed Robot and Zig Zag Monster. 

Numeracy - We have been racing each other and lining up at the bus stop to help us find out about our ordinal numbers. We have also been investigating number lines and positioning numbers carefully. 

Computing - This term we are learning to program toys and give clear, accurate instructions. We went in to the hall and programmed our very own human robot (each other). We had to be very clear when we were instructing our robots or it went very wrong!!!

Outdoor play - We've been busy building things... Big things and small things. We have worked as a team and enjoyed being outside in the fresher Autumn weather.

Keep an eye out in book bags for some information on Wow Moments and a Multi Skills Sports Festival.
