The Cheeky Monkeys started the year off by doing lots of groups and class activities. We incorporate TRIBE activities every day and one of the games that was a hit with children was the ‘What am I’ game. In this game, children are chosen to hold up a picture of an animal, fruit or vegetable, which they do not know, and they have to ask ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions to their classmates to find out what they have. This game was quite complicated as the children had to use their thinking skills to ask effective questions. We did a variety of maths activities in the past two weeks pertaining to numbers to 10 and number bonds. The children learnt in a whole class setting where they saw and participated in activities set up by the teacher and they also went to the table for smaller group tasks such as arranging cubes in ascending and descending numbers.
