Throwing shapes whilst singing songs….

This week the children have continued to enjoy their daily phonic songs. In Literacy the children have explored the characters in The Three Little Pigs. In Maths we have been learning the 2D shape names. The children went on a shape hunt and used shapes to design homes for the Three Little Pigs.

The highlight for the children this week was creating our carrot and coriander soup. They were busy peeling vegetables most of Monday morning! But thoroughly enjoyed it! We hope you all had a taste!

Next weeks story will continue to be: The Three Little Pigs

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

Ordering about!

This week we have continued to explore the story of Cinderella. The children ordered and spoke about the different settings within the story.  Thank you for continuing to supporting the children’s story telling language development when hearing them read. We also made links to the story of Cinderella by talking about the different people we have met.

There has been lots of ordering in Maths… including our numbers!! We have also been looking and playing with numbers in the environment.

Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo….. we’ve had lots to do!

This week the children have enjoyed the story of Cinderella. We have also used the story to support our phonics. The children have been practising oral blending and segmenting words. They have also practised recognising and continuing rhyming strings. Maths has had a number focus. We have been counting and ordering different quantities.

Next week we will continue to read Cinderella.

In Phonics we will begin learning our sounds. Watch this space for the sounds and any tricky words we have taught!



Welcome to Alban City School!

This week we have enjoyed making new friends. We have explored all the resources in our classroom and found out how to be like Grey Mouse! Each class has thought of their own class rules to follow this year too.

Thank you for bringing in your yellow Alban City Bags for sharing. It was fun learning about your summer holidays and has been a great way to get to know each other.
