If you keep one or two of these skills in mind each time we read a take home book, you can ask us questions about […]

That’s Not Fair!

Sharing is a big part of life, in our classrooms and at home. Food, pencils, paper, toys and books are all things we share every day. At the moment we are learning about fairness and identifying if something shared is fair or unfair. We are using words like ‘same’, ‘half’ and ‘equal’. This might include sharing collections of objects or sharing […]
