Autumn 2 week 3

We have continued our theme of Under the Sea discovering how different objects can float or sink in water along with investigating the capacity of various containers. The children really enjoyed engaging in the variety of activities and exploring with a variety of materials.

We are becoming quite independent in identifying the initial sounds in words along with spelling CVC words. We practice using our feet, then our magic fingers and then write it on the whiteboard or even on our playground which we particularly enjoyed.

We have been learning a new game called hopscotch. This helps us to practice our hopping, one foot to two feet. Please ask us and we can show you.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Autumn 2 Week 2

We are really enjoying our 'Under the Sea' theme where this week we were focusing on the life cycle of the turtle. We watched a video that was really interesting, showing us the huge amount of sea turtles that hatched from the eggs in the sand and how they all made their way to the sea.We have been working very hard on developing our blending skills using words from Phase 2 along with identifying sounds within words that we can write on our whiteboards. We are having great fun using our feet and magic fingers to spell the words, which enables us to use both sides of our brain.

In Maths we are learning about adding two sets of objects to see how many we have altogether. It is very exciting to see how we are developing our number knowledge each week. We particularly enjoyed our 'Men and Maths' day in our class. We demonstrated all the skills we have been working on; counting, adding two sets, adding one more, sorting according to colour and category and completing patterns using the peg boards. We are very clever boys and girls in Giraffe and Zebra class.
It was so much fun watching The Gruffalo in the Gym Hall, which magically turned into a cinema! The tasty popcorn and juice was a such a nice treat too. Thank you to everyone who helped organise all these events for us.
We hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
