Who has been playing (and making a mess…) in our classroom?

This week in Literacy we have been segmenting and blending key words from the story; ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We linked this to our Maths lessons by discussing the different sizes of the bears bowls, chairs and beds. We ordered the objects using the language small, medium and large, and have been measuring how tall the bears are using rulers. We have explored centimetres as a unit of measure.

Our sounds so far: s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,o,g,c,k,ck,e,u,r,h,b,f/ff,l/ll,ss,j,v,w,x,y,z/zz,q/qu, ch, sh, th, ng

Tricky words: the, to, no, go, I, he, she, we, me, be, was, you, they

Story next week: We will be continuing the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Sky’s the limit!



The children have been excited about the beans we have planted in class. In literacy they wrote a list of what the beans need to help them grow. We have also completed some shared writing to model what sentences should look like. We have been measuring beanstalks and comparing height in Maths.

Our sounds so far: s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,o,g,c,k,ck,e,u,r,h,b,f/ff,l/ll,ss,j,v,w,x,y,z/zz,q/qu

Story next week: Goldilocks and the Three Bears


Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum the children are having lots of fun!

Welcome back! This week the children have been responding to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. In Maths they have been combining groups of beans to explore addition. In Literacy we are continuing to support the children with their reading and writing, by practising the oral segmenting and blending of words, for example breaking them down; J-a-ck.

Story next week: we will continue to read different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk

What tired eyes you have!

What a busy first half term at school we have had! We are all very proud of the progress the children have made already. They have picked up on routines and made lots of new friends. We hope the children get a good rest next week! In Literacy this week we have continued to read Little Red Riding Hood and looked at how to form a sentence. We thought about capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. In Maths we have been focusing on number formation.

Stories after half term: we will continue to look at traditional stories and fairy tales



If you go into the woods….

This week the children have listened to the story of Little Red Riding Hood and labelled a scene from the story. They have also made some beautiful observational drawings of some trees that Little Red Riding Hood may have encountered too! In Maths the children have revisited 2D shapes and used their properties to sort them.


Story next week: We are continuing the Little Red Riding Hood

I’ll huff and I’ll puff…

This week we have continued to write about the ‘Three Little Pigs’.  In Maths we have been learning about 2d shapes, discussing how many sides and how many corners each shape has. We used these shapes to create pictures. Also we have been singing a Harvest song; ‘Have you ever seen an apple’ this week in preparation for our assembly tomorrow.

Let me in!

This week we have read the story ‘The Three Little Pigs’. The children have used different 2D shapes to design houses for the pigs in Maths. During Literacy they have been using initial letter sounds to draw and label the characters. They have also used the iPads to create pictures of the story.

Our sounds so far: s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d

Welcome to Alban City!

Wow what a busy start to the term! So far we have settled in well and the children are continuing to develop their friendships. Our story in Literacy has been Cinderella. The children have ordered the story and discussed the different characters. We are continuing to develop number knowledge during Maths. We are working on counting, ordering and number recognition.
