This week in Literacy we have been talking all about or wonderful families and writing about them. We have been practising spelling our names and beginning to sound the first few High Frequency Words; mum, dad, I and am. We have aced our letter of the week, letter 'a' for apple. We really enjoyed going outside with Miss C and making faces out of all the natural materials we could find.
We have focused on the skill of repeating patterns in our Numeracy sessions. The children were brilliant at using this skill in all areas of the classroom, such as, making patters on peg boards, making multilink snakes, completing the teddy bear patterns and using the dabbers to make their own pattern pictures. They really enjoyed playing the 'Topmarks Planet Pal' online interactive game completing the patterns , please find the link below if you would like to play this at home.
In our Topic sessions we have learnt all about our main organs of the body; brain, heart, lungs, stomach and intestines and the important job each one has to keep out bodies running! Mrs Price drew around Anna and we had to say where we thought each organ can be found in our body. She was very impressed with hoe much we already knew! See if they are able to explain to you what each organs does.
Literacy - Our letter of the week is the letter 's'. We will be tuning into on our feelings next week and talking about what makes us happy, sad etc. We have our mood monsters ready to help us with discussing all of our different feelings and emotions.
Numeracy - Our number of the week is 'Number 4'. We will be investigating 2D shapes and their properties. You could go on a shape hunt around your house to see what shapes you can find.
We hope you have a lovely weekend and stay safe!
Mrs Price & Miss C
