This week we will carry on with our meerkat topic, using both fiction and non-fiction books to inspire us. We will be looking at the way meerkats are adapted to life in the Kalahari Desert and practicing writing postcards from different environments, just like Sunny did in last week's story, Meerkat Mail.
This week our story will be Millicent and Meer by Richard Byrne which is all about a girl called Millicent who makes an unexpected new friend when a large box falls from the sky into her garden! We will also be reading Meerkats Are Awesome! by Lisa J. Amstutz and Meet the Meerkat by Darrin Lunde to find out meerkat facts in school. Any information you can find about meerkats at home will be perfect for this week's work so don't worry if you don't have these books yourself.
We will continue working with number lines to work on finding one more and one less and then have a go at tackling some reasoning and problem solving challenges.
