So this week we chose to read the story “Little Rabbit Foo Foo” in Drawing Club as it’s one of the children’s favourites and they love joining in with it. They had some great ideas for where the goblins might live, how he could travel quickly round the forest to apologise to the animals and some interesting ideas for the machine to turn him back to normal. For some reason I was being put in the machine!
Here’s a selection of some of their super writing and drawings:
In phonics we have learned the tricky words ‘out’, ‘do’, ‘what’, ‘when’ (which have been added to their sound card bags) and have been learning to read and write polysyllabic words. They are working hard on making sure they are using their ‘segmenting fingers’ first to listen for all the sounds in the words before writing them.
In Maths we have been learning about sharing equally, initially into two equal groups (halving) and then over the week we have looked at sharing into groups of 3,4 and even 5! We’ve also been recapping our doubles and number bonds to ten to help the children to remember them.
The children have enjoyed planting some seeds at the end of the week that will hopefully grow into flowers that will help attract bees, butterflies and other insects to our outdoor area. We talked about how to look after plants and what they need to grow. They took great care planting the seeds and watering them. Hopefully it won’t be long before we start to see some shoots.
Well done to all our Lucky Dip winners this week. Our highest number of children yet! Thank you so much for your support with this.
Books have been changed today. Please keep reading as much as you possibly can over the half term and practise the new tricky words to help your child become more confident and fluent when reading.
We have a large number of jumpers and cardigans (all unnamed) in the lost property box for our corridor at the moment. These have been displayed out on the fence of the nursery garden at home time the last two days but unfortunately very few have been claimed.
To avoid any further additions to the lost property box, please ensure your child’s clothing is named, especially as the weather is becoming warmer and children are removing their jumpers and cardigans more frequently.
We hope you all have a lovely half term break and look forward to seeing you back on Monday 5th June.
Miss Jones, Mrs Kenny and Miss Harrison
