It has been a fun filled learning journey exploring
This week ended our topic, Outer Space celebrating our learning by singing space songs, baking alien cup cakes and watching video clips of space and reflecting on what we have been learning. We also enjoyed role-playing as aliens and astronauts.
This week we have been measuring aliens with cubes and comparing different sizes. such as big-small, tall-short and wide-narrow. We used basic shapes to create aliens. We have been practising counting skills through structure games such as line up and mix, pair,share.
This week in phonics we will continue tuning into sounds using various games and resources such as ‘Metal Mike’ and 'Cross the River'. We will also continue segmenting three letter words and listening to the initial sounds in words.
This week we have been learning all about the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We were very resilient when weaving Little Red Riding Hood's baskets making sure we went over, under, over then under! We made a lovely basket to carry cookies for Grandma. We also enjoyed making bread pizza with grated cheese.
This week we formed our new teams. We worked in these teams to colour our team sign which is a character from a traditional tale.
This week in mathematics we have been learning to count aloud in 10s all the way to 100. We have also been practising adding 2 numbers. We enjoyed playing the game 'Roll and Shake' where we rolled the dice to find out how many pom poms to add to each pot. We then shook the cups together and added different amount of pom poms.
In phonics, Miss Gemma's group have been learning the digraphs ear and air.
Miss Vijaya’s group have been learning the diagraph ch and ee.
Miss Johanna's group have been practising blending and segmenting CVC.
