In Maths we have been using our awareness of counting when problem solving. The children have been working on consolidating number recognition when ordering numbers, and we have been encouraging them to be more independent. In Literacy the children are now attempting to write more when labelling pictures. They are using their knowledge of blending and segmenting to decode words and then use a sound mat to link letters and sounds when recording. The children drew their favourite part from the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Tomorrow we plan to make divas as part of learning about Divali.
Sounds taught so far: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, o, g, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, (Can you read or write any words using these sounds?)
Tricky words introduced: no, go, I
Story Next Week: The Little Red Hen
This week we have been reading and responding to the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We have been hearing and saying the initial sounds in words and we are now beginning to orally decode the sounds in simple words, such as ‘b-e-d, bed.’
In maths we have been comparing differences in quantity. We estimated how many lego bricks were in bowls and compared these with various amounts to develop our understanding. We were really impressed with children’s estimations, however we have noticed they needed a lot of support with their comparative language such as ‘there is a lot more in this one than that one’.
We hope you all have a lovely half-term holiday and we can’t wait to hear all about it when we are back at school on Tuesday 31st October.
Sounds taught so far: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u
Story next week: Little Red Riding Hood
The last two weeks we have been reading and responding to the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs.’ We have responded to the story in a variety of ways including selecting materials in our outdoor area to build the strongest house and retelling the story with our friends using masks and small world animals. In maths we have been sorting 2D shapes into shapes with curved/straight sides. We are beginning to describe shape properties.
We are really impressed with the children’s descriptive language when describing parts of the story, however we have noticed that they have needed a lot of support with their use of story language for example time words. The children need to be able to tell a complete story with a beginning, middle and end.
Sounds taught so far: s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,g,o
Story next week: Little Red Riding Hood
Welcome to our blog!
We are so impressed by how well the children have settled in. They are busy making new friends and learning ways to become independent learners. Our topic is called; ‘Happily Ever After!” The last two weeks we have been reading and responding to the story of ‘Cinderella’. This week we are focusing on ‘The Three Little Pigs.’ We have started our phonics programme (learning to read and write), in which the children are beginning to apply their knowledge of sounds. For example hearing the initial sounds in words. We started Maths by going over number recognition and formation, and have now moved onto 2D shapes.
Sounds taught so far: s,a,t,p,i,n,m
