Look who held the chicks today!
Today the children looked at an analogue clock and learnt what o'clock and half past looked like......it is trickier than you think!
If your child asks to tell them what the time is please show them an analogue clock rather than a digital, this will help to reinforce their learning. Thank you.

Today in maths we were learning about money and how that 2 pence is the same as 2 x 1pence. We also found a good technique for counting the value of the coins we have, when it is a 2 pence coin we tap it twice whilst counting.
It is surprising how tricky money can be! but we had a great time finding all the values.
