Happy Half Term

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
