We will be revisiting our Number Blocks counting

We will be learning about Number Bonds.

We will keep exploring "Shape Space and Measure"

Our Topic : The Life cycle of a butterfly

These are our learning powers!

They will help us develop strategies to access all the learning we will be exploring in Rainbow Class.

Play is a central part of young children's learning. 

Through play children explore ideas, feelings and relationships. 

They can take risks, make mistakes

and try things out without fear or failure.

Play can push out the limits of what is possible

and help children be creative, flexible and imaginative.

Rich play promotes control, mastery, confidence and well being.
