This week we revised All About Me and focused on our family. We made a hand print family tree and drew our family members. We looked at family photos and discussed each member, thinking about what roles they do in their family. We shared stories of Kipper's family and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
This week in Nursery we continued looking at rhyming words through stories and songs. We played Rhyming soup, using a bowl and spoon singing the rhyming soup song and introduced objects or picture cards that rhyme.
ICAN PLAY learners have been having fun mark making with paint,sand and glitter using cotton buds and brushes. We have also been listening to mystery sounds and talking about them.
In maths Nursery learners have been learning about more and less. We enjoyed playing Mucky Monsters on the Interactive whiteboard.
iCAN PLAY learners have been comparing sizes and learning the mathematical language with pink towers and cylinders (big, bigger, biggest, small, smaller, smallest).
This week we started our new topic SPACE!
For our ENTRY POINT we had so much fun making a human planet Earth with our bodies. We dressed up in green and blue colours and made a cooperative effort to make our planet earth.
This week in maths we have been ordering planets in relation to how close they are to the sun. Together we placed the planets in the correct order. We also counted cubes in 10’s as a base for all teen numbers. 10+1=11 ,10+5=15 etc
In Literacy we have been looking at letter sounds /m/ and /d/ and have been finding out what objects begin with these letters. We are learning to segment and blend CVC words and have been using magnetic letters and boards to spell three letter words. We had fun making mmmmango, mmmilkshake with ddddiced mango. Later we enjoyed drinking the healthy drink. Geraldine the giraffe has helped us with our letter sounds this week. We are learning tricky words /no/ and /go/ and are using these words verbally in sentences.
