Lower Foundation Phase

‘Write Dance’ activities

We have great fun learning different stories and then developing our mark-making skills by making different movements with our bodies.


We love it when ‘Wally’ and ‘Dina’ visit! They have been teaching us to ‘Show 5′ -

1.  Eyes on the teacher

2. Mouth closed

3. Ears open

4. Hands in lap to concentrate

5. Criss-Cross Applesauce legs – this is our favourite!

Look how well we can ‘Show 5′…



This week we are making our own handprints to help us remember the ‘Show me 5′ rules’

Miss. Davies’ class

After reading the story ‘Jack and the Baked Beanstalk’ our class enjoyed completing a variety of mathematical activities.

We counted baked beans and wrote the corresponding numerals using chalk.

We practised forming our numerals correctly in baked bean juice and played a game where we had to throw a ball into large baked bean tins. Each tin was labelled with a number and Numicon shape.

We kept a score of the totals on our chalk board outdoors.



We all had great fun whilst developing our mathematical skills. Thumbs up!
