This week we have been looking at summer. We looked closely at the changes in weather patterns and activities people enjoy around the world during summer time. We enjoyed making a summer collage, cutting pictures of summer activities people do around the world. We also enjoyed threading sun patterns and made ice-cream decorating it with shapes. We had fun making sandcastles and sunglasses. We also made sunflowers with paper plates.
In phonics we have been playing mix-pair-share using rhyming words. We have also been practising Phase 1 aspect 4- rhythm and rhyme and aspect 5- alliteration through letters and sounds games and activities. We enjoy playing games listening to the initial sounds of our names and objects.
In maths we have been learning about more and less. We enjoyed playing mucky monsters on the Interactive whiteboard.
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 our focus was on planets. We have been learning and exploring about planets in our solar system. We have also been learning a song about the eight planets. We looked at non-fiction books and video clips to find out more information on planets and solar system. We have also been exploring our tuff spot trays with planets, stars using magnifying glasses. In art and craft we made a huge planet earth collage tearing blue and green colour paper, marbling planets and we made planet hats. We have been role-playing in space, pretending to be astronauts and exploring planets.
This week in maths we have been learning the concept about more and fewer. We related this to resources like small world animals and teddies.
In phonics we have been learning the sounds 'b', and 'h'. The high frequency words for this week were ‘no’ and ‘go’. We played a lot of interactive phonic games trying to segment and blend the words.
