We have been continuing to rote count in 2’s this week and are getting much more confident at this.

We shared this activity really nicely and enjoy using the Bee Bot to help with our learning.
A new topic introduce this week was time. We looked at the class calendar and learnt a song about the days of the week. We looked at the seasons of the year and all the months of the year. Whilst looking at the months of the year we discussed when our birthdays are.
