World Book Day was, of course, a highlight, and we adored seeing the marvellous array of colourful costumes and listening to the children talk about their favourite books. After the exciting book day parade at the Prep, the children came back to Pre-Prep to answer questions at our very special Hampton Pre-Prep Book quiz! Alongside their Year 2 friends, the children worked in colour teams and we were delighted with their excellent knowledge of books.

In mathematics, we have been learning about numbers within 50. The children have worked practically to look at grouping objects in 10s to help them count; we discovered this is makes counting easier when faced with a large group of randomly arranged objects. We have looked at tens and ones and found out how these make up numbers to 50; we now recognise that a 2-digit number is formed by counting the number of groups of ten for the first digit and the ones left over as the second digit. We will continue this learning next week.
