Hi everyone! A slightly later blog than usual due to a technical issue but here is a run down of last week...
Welcome back everyone! We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and New Year, happy 2020 to you all!
This week in class, we have been learning all about rhyming words, using the books ‘OI Frog!’, ‘OI dog!’ and ‘OI Cat!’ all by the Author Kes Gray. We have had great fun thinking of things that rhyme with animal names; poodles and noodles, larks and sharks and leopards and shepherds! Ask us at home if we can remember any!
We have also been beginning to think lots about fairy tales this week in class. Our role play area has transformed into a sweetie house straight out of Hansel and Gretel, we found some magic beans in class which we think might belong to Jack, from Jack in the beanstalk and we have also started to design our own fairy tale puppets, which we will be making throughout this half term.
In number work, we learnt about subtracting this week and we had lots of fun taking numbers away from Miss Ingle to see how the number gets smaller. We used lots of practical objects to take away and were very good at this skill…. You may even want to ask us some take-away questions at home to test us!
School arts days are coming up soon and we are in desperate need of some junk modelling bits! If anyone can donate any of the following to Class One, we would be so appreciative! We are in need of…
- Empty tin cans
- Bottle caps and plastic lids from things (coffee jars etc)
- Egg Cartons
- Small square tins (sweet and mint tins etc)
- Small boxes (smaller than a cereal box)
- Any old circuit boards, wire, metal nuts, and flexi-tube.
The more, the better! Thank you so much in advance!
Enjoy your weekend everyone and see you all on Monday!
