We have been celebrating all things ‘Bears’ this week. Thank you for helping your child choose a bear to bring into school. We are very happy to report all bears have been very well behaved and helped us all with our busy jobs this week.
In Maths and Numeracy, we have been using capacity. The bears have been watching as we didn’t want their fur to get soggy. We have been exploring the language of ‘full, ‘half full’ and ‘empty’ and experimenting with lots of different sized containers in the water tray.
Our language focus has been all about describing our favourite teddy bear. We have cuddled our bears to check for softness, discussed their colour, size and what makes them special to us. We have also been getting ready for our Teddy Bear’s Picnic. This has been done quietly so the bears did not suspect a celebration, so we have written invitations, made lists of the things we need for the party and designed some decorations.
Our focus for phonics and handwriting has been the letter ‘e, E’. We have made very long lists of words beginning with ‘e’, including ‘exclamation mark’ and ‘exit’. This letter can be a tricky one to write but as long as we start in the middle, we have been very successful!
In PE we have played games in the hall and explored our school grounds as part of our outdoor learning.
And so, to next week and our last week of looking at toys. We have decided to go back in time to see how things have changed. We will be investigating toys our grandparents played with and the ones we have today. I wonder if there will be some toys both generations have enjoyed? And what toys we have now would surprise people from the past?
We hope you all have a lovely weekend and thank you for all your support, from the
Children of Class 1 and 2, Mrs Price, Miss C, Mrs Hughes and Mrs Pritchard.
