In art and craft we made water scene and enjoyed painting with marbles to create the sea.
We enjoyed exploring tuff spot trays with under the sea animals, counting frogs and ducks and using tongs to pick numbers and fish to sort into pots from the water.

5,4,3,2,1- blast off! This week the learners have been exploring rockets and space. Using 3D shapes they built rockets and cut out paper shapes to make a rocket and they used junk modeling materials to construct rockets. On top of all this the learners continued to work on ordering the planets, space play dough and toys and engaging in role play.
This week we have been focusing on letter sounds 'g' and 'o'. The learning facilitators have been impressed by the learners progress in phonics and how many sounds they can remember. Along with sounds we have been covering some simple high frequency words such as it, is, in, at.
In the next learning block the learners will start bringing home picture books to share with you. More information will go home after the Pchum Ben holiday on reading at home with your child.
Learning about rockets was the prefect way to practice counting backwards. The students practiced counting down from 10 to 0 before the rocket blasted off. We continued to focus on length and height and arranging them in order. The learners also started to explore 2D and 3D shapes this week and they will continue to work on this after the holidays.
We would also like to take this opportunity to wish all the Early Years families a Happy Pchum Ben Break. School will be closed from Monday 8th until the 14th. School will reopen as normal on Monday 15th October.
