You can use your free fingers to sound out the easy words like is, has, got, black. Your grown up can help you with the tricky words. After you've done it please email me a photograph of your writing and upload a Christmas jumper selfie to the Facebook page!

 

I look forward to seeing your words snuggle and finger spaces in between your words.

Yesterday in maths you were adding one more. Today we are going to do the opposite!

We are going to learn about one less... That means taking away one. - 1

Your adult will tell you to make a number of objects e.g. 6, Once you have 6 they will ask you to take one away, then count how many you have now. If you find this super easy try numbers bigger than 10!

For your maths task I’d like you to have a go at making a snowflake. Watch the video below for some ideas but feel free to try your own! When you open it up see what shapes you can find or if there are any patterns you can spot. 

 

Literacy - Reading!

In phonics we have been learning how to read... the children have shown determination, perseverance and enjoyment when reading! Although you wont be able to have a reading book whilst isolating, we are extremely lucky to have access to our phonic scheme's eBooks!! Below is a picture how to access reading materials.

 

There are three different levels:

1. Sound blending - 3 letter words

2. Red ditties - simple sentences

3. Green books - more complex sentences.

 

Please listen to your child read ONE of the materials each day, e.g. read one red ditty sheet per day, not the whole 10.

 

If you are unsure on which books to read with your child, email me and I can advise you :)

Our learning in Autumn One...

Physical Development

-Moving & Handling

- Health & Self-care

 

The children have been using the outdoor area to practise their physical skills, they have really enjoyed throwing, catching and kicking the footballs. In our kinetic letters (handwriting) the children have been making their three writing fingers strong so they can hold their pencils correctly and use them with good control! They have learnt how to form letters of the alphabet - some of them can even write words! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

-Making Relationships

-Managing Feelings & Behaviour

- Self-Confidence & Self-Awareness
 

Since the start of term the children have all formed blossoming friendships with each other. They have all tried really hard to remember the three school rules - kind hands, kind feet, kind mouths! It has been wonderful to see children working together cooperatively to achieve an outcome!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Communication & Language

-Listening and attention

-Understanding

-Speaking

 

This term we have read a lot of stories which has improved the children's listening and attention massively. The children have then been asked questions about the stories to help their understanding. The children develop their speaking every single day through daily conversations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Literacy

-Reading

-Writing

 

The children have had a half term jam-packed full of stories - this has improved their knowledge of how stories are structured and provided them with some fantastic new vocabulary. Since the first week back the children have participated in a daily phonics session where they have learnt to recognise sounds, blend words and use the magnetic boards to spell words. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mathematics

-Number

-Shape, Space & Measure

 

In maths we have been learning how to recognise number, order number and count out objects. We have also been measuring people and objects using measuring hands and feet. We have been talking about height and weight using the language: tall, short, heavy and light.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Understanding the World

-The World

-Technology

-People and Communities

 

This term we have had a strong focus on being unique... being ME. We have done a lot of activities to help the children recognise similarities and differences between themselves and others and why this is important. We have also used the Ipads to navigate apps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Expressive Arts & Design

-Exploring & Using Media & Materials

-Being Imaginative

 

The children have had free access to creative materials throughout their first term - this has allowed them to use their imagination alongside their creative skills. They have created some fantastic masterpieces.
