This week we have been listening to the story 'Rainbow fish. After listening to the story we talked about sharing and the importance of having friends.
We started a new topic called ‘Under the Sea’. We are learning about living things that are beneath seas and oceans. We have been focusing on sea animals through the ‘Rainbow Fish’ story. Over the coming weeks, we will dive deep down underwater and study the ocean life through slideshows, non-fiction books and role play! We are also going to strengthen our knowledge by discovering more sea creatures and plants as well.
In maths we have been making comparisons between quantities using coloured fish and other objects. We are already observing amounts and have been trying to categorise them using mathematical words such as ‘more’ and ‘a lot’. We're also working on measuring sea creatures tall-short, long-short and big-small. We have also been learning to count numbers 0-9 through games and songs.
In our phonics we have been revising sitting and listening skills as well as awareness of sounds in the environment.
This week we have been busy bees getting ready for our new friend Kala the Koala’s birthday party. We wrote invitations to our teachers and parents. We made chocolate crispies, cupcakes and popcorn. We made bunting with letter sounds and pictures with initial sounds, paper chains and party hats for the class decoration. We had a fantastic time celebrating Kala’s birthday and really enjoyed eating the yummy food and playing musical chairs with our friends and guests.
