Spring Term - Week 7

Week commencing 23rd February

 

Welcome back, we hope you all had a great half term and a good rest. We have jumped straight back into our learning and we have begun our new topic “The World Around Us” with a week on space. We have been asking lots of questions and finding the answers to these using non-fiction (or fact) books. We have also read about aliens who love underpants and we have been doing lots of imaginative and role play learning.

 

We have shared our holiday news with our key worker groups and we have also had a go at writing it down. We have been practising using our new sounds in our writing through phonics lessons and in our independent work.

 

At the beginning of our topic we decided we wanted to put on an alien puppet show so we worked as a team to build a puppet theatre and create puppets to star in our shows. We worked in groups to create a short story and we performed this to the rest of the class.

We also had great fun designing our own symmetrical pairs of underpants for the aliens!

This week in maths we have continued our counting in steps of 1, 2, 5 and 10. We have also been recording our numbers.

Outside we have been playing vets and we were fascinated by the discovery of a very large garden spider!

Next week…

We will be reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and learning about planting, growing and Spring. In maths we will looking at ordering and comparing items by length and height as well as continuing our counting. We will be planting beans and starting a bean diary as well as writing instructions for growing.

 

At home…

Please continue to read with us every night and help us spot those digraphs and tricky trigraphs!

Help us be curious about the world around us by encouraging us to look closely at our surroundings and ask questions. Do send any facts you discover in to school so we can share them with our friends.
