This week we have:
- In Maths we have focused on “Height and Length” we have been using these questions throughout the week. What words can we use to describe how big something is? Can you bring/show me something else that is long/short/tall? Can you tell me which is your longest/shortest worm? How do you know? How many cubes are the same length as this worm? Can you put your worms into size order, starting with the shortest?
- Used lots of Fred Talk in our phonics time, listening to the sounds in words and learned the first set of sounds in the Read Write Inc phonics scheme, we have also been starting to write the letters too.
- Shared the story "The Crunching Munching Caterpillar" story by Sheridan Cain and looked at photographs of butterflies looking at the symmetrical (two matching wings) patterns on their wings. We looked at the range of colours and patterns, encouraging children to make observations and discuss what they can see. We then finger painted our own butterflies, we painted one wing and then folded it in half so that the pattern was the same on both wings.
- As part of our learning in RE we have shared the story of Pentecost.
