Weeks commencing 11th May
ROARRR!! This week we have been learning about dinosaurs in Ash class!
We have created our own dinosaur museum and begun work on a Saplings’ Dinosaur Book too.
In maths we have been working really hard to recognise and order numbers 11-20 and we have also been using rulers to measure and compare lengths of dinosaur bones. A loose dinosaur has left some numbered footprints around the unit so we have also been taking part in a dinosaur number hunt.
In literacy we have been writing labels for the artefacts in our dinosaur museum and some information pages for our big book.
We have been busy doing lots of imaginative junk modelling and we have made pterodactyls, a tyrannosaurus rex and even a dinosaur skin!
In preparation for our farm visit and farm topic, we have been making good use of our new farm shop role play area where we have been practising buying and selling with our friends.
We will be finishing our topic on dinosaurs and beginning to think about our next topic of “farm” ahead of our school trip.
In maths we will be continuing to work on our numbers 11-20.
Please continue to read with us every night and help us spot those digraphs and tricky trigraphs!
Help us to be brave writers – we are all able to write simple sentences by sounding our words out now so do encourage us to have a go. Remember, our words don’t have to be spelt correctly we just need to try and get our sounds in the right order (e.g “a laidee burd is a minee beest” is a super sentence!)
Don’t forget to check back soon!
