The boys listened to the story ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” After spotting all the animals in the story, they looked for items they could see in our classroom. The boys then wrote the initial letter e.g. d for ‘duck’. They also wrote any remaining sounds they could hear when segmenting and blending. We made masks to act out the story and used different materials, such as feathers, tissue paper and glitter to decorate the animals from the story. It is proudly displayed in our classroom!
During Phonics, the boys practised learning and writing the sounds, i, n and p. Please do continue to practise writing these sounds in the word book and think about words beginning with these sounds. We also practised writing the numbers 2 and 3.
This week in Maths we have been comparing and ordering by size, length and time.
Here are some activities you can do at home:
Find a ruler or a stick. Can you find something longer or shorter than this? Can you find something taller or shorter than this? Can you find something exactly the same length or height as this?
You can also make caterpillars from playdough. Which one is the longest caterpillar? Can you make a caterpillar that is the same length as a given stick?
During our PSED lesson, we talked about keeping our teeth healthy. RY Class suggested going to the dentist, brushing their teeth twice a day and eating vegetables! They enjoyed sorting foods between healthy and unhealthy and brushing the teeth model.
If you are out and about in the next couple of days, please collect some autumn leaves to bring into school. We are planning to use the leaves for autumnal art during a Welly Time lesson. Please bring in for the 6th of October. It would be lovely to see pictures of you collecting the materials, please upload to Tapestry.
The theme for the ‘Show and Tell’ is ‘All about me’. Please bring in a photo/ picture or one of your favourite toys to show to the class. The list is displayed on our class window as well as the blog.
The ‘Show and Tell’ boys for next week are as follows:
Friday: Jett- Louis
To develop the boys’ independence skills we are going to start weekly challenges. Challenges will be placed on the blog and window.
Our challenge starting on the 03.10.22 is: Hang your coat up independently. To support the boys, you can encourage them to hang their coats up using the hook independently at home.
Please can you drop the boys off at the gate so the boys can walk into class from the soft top independently. Thank you very much for your support!
We look forward to seeing you on Monday for our ‘open classroom’ afternoon, the boys have worked very hard and I hope you enjoy looking through their books.
Have a restful and enjoyable weekend!
Miss Yiacoulas and Mrs Aldridge
