This week we continued making repeated patterns with numbers, colours, shapes and objects. We enjoyed making repeated patterns on caterpillars and butterflies.
In maths we have been learning to recognise numbers 1-10 through structures. We practised writing numbers on sand using our fingers and brushes. We also enjoyed making and drawing patterns on butterflies.
In literacy we had fun listening to and looking at a wide range of story books such as Elmer, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Farmer Duck. We looked at fiction and non— fiction books and also discovered what an illustrator and an author are and what they contribute to the book?
We have been looking at ladybirds as part of our Mini-Beast topic. We have looked at their colours and counted their spots. We made our own paper ladybirds and celebrated our learning topic with our EXIT POINT going on a field trip to ISPP's Butterfly Garden and saw lots of beautiful butterflies of different sizes and colours. We had a lovely time!
In Maths this week, we have been recapping ordinal numbers, capacity and have been matching flowers to the correct number as well as ordering leaves and insects.

We have been practising using wow words in sentences for Big Talk. In guided reading we now sit and read in groups, we try to read books a colour band above what we read, this will help us with our comprehension and understanding of the stories.
We have been busy drawing mini-beast and flowers in our journals as well as draw what we saw at the butterfly garden. We have been listening to the story The Bad Tempered Ladybird.
