This week our focus was Vegetables. We have been learning the names of the vegetables through non-fiction books and video clips. We investigated some real vegetables, felt and smelt them and discussed what are favourite vegetables are. We enjoyed making a vegetable pie, cutting and chopping vegetables. It was so delicious. In our art and craft we made carrots and used them for vegetable printing.
In phonics we have been playing mix-pair-share using rhyming words. We have also been practising Phase 1 aspect 2' General Sound Discrimination: Instrumental Sounds' through letters and sounds games and activities.
This week in maths we sorted vegetables and fruits. We also focused on counting 1-5, 1-20 using various counters and number songs. We have also been learning about more and less. We enjoyed playing mucky monsters on the Interactive whiteboard.
This week we learned about Eid festival. We discussed how Muslims pray in a mosque. We made a picture of a Mosque against a starry night sky and added stars using gold and silver pencils.
In our phonics session we introduce the new sounds ‘p’ and ‘t’ and tried to find many words beginning with these sounds. We enjoyed watching Geraldine the Giraffe who was going around the house to find objects beginning with these sounds. We had great fun writing the sounds in the air using different parts of our body during our phonics session. We enjoyed playing the caterpillar game where we matched the initial sounds to the pictures. We had great fun writing the letter sounds in the gloop, glitter and sand using fingers and brushes during our phonics session.
We also enjoyed making toast with peanut butter as we learned about the letter sound‘t’ and ‘p’. We enjoyed eating the toast, yummy!
This week in our maths sessions we continued to learn to measure. We enjoyed doing many activities outdoors trying to guess which path is longest whether it was the straight one, curvy one or the wriggly one. It was great fun exploring our guesses!
