Spring Term Updates

Week Beginning: 16/01/2022

 

Well done Gruffalos for a fabulous week. This week we have been learning all about the story 'Can't you sleep litlle bear'. We loved this story, learning all about the light of the moon and nocturnal animals. We have been busy using torches to find nocturnal animals around the classroom and drawing around shadows of animals. In the playdough, we made caves for our animals and organised the compare bears into colours. 

 

In Maths this week we have looked at the numbers 6 and 7. We have used counters, fingers and 10 frames to compare and split the numbers 6 and 7 to find out what numbers they are made of. 

 

In Literacy this week we have been labeling nocturnal animals, writing fox, bat, rat, cat and owl.

 

Next week we will be reading the story Whatever Next and learning about capacity in Maths. 

Week beginning 09/01/23

 

We have had a brilliant week back in Gruffalos and have been working super hard. This week we have looked at bedtime routines and the importance of having a bedtime/sleep routine, who works at night time and discussed if we would like to work in them jobs, how to keep healthy and even did an EGGsperiment to ensure we know the importance of brushing our teeth!

 

We have loved exploring our classroom provision this week. We have had fun looking at nocturnal animals, in particular owls and we have been making owls with feathers, playdough and goggly eyes, we have painted lots of pictures of owls and used feathers to create some fantastic work! We have explored our home corner which is starry night themed with lots of asteroids, stars, planets and other exciting things that are in the Solar System! In Literacy this week we have read the story ‘Owl babies’, in our talking partners we discussed what we would do at home if we awoke like the baby owls and noticed our parents were not at home, we discussed how we would stay safe and had some fantastic answers! In Maths this week we have looked at heavy and light, we have found explored different objects that are heavy and light and have found objects around the classroom that are lighter and heavier than one another!

 

We enjoyed a dance lesson and music and are excited for these every week!

 

Next week we will continue with ‘Starry night’ and will be reading the story ‘Can’t you sleep little bear?’ 

 

Well done, Gruffalos!

Week beginning 04/01/23

 

We have had a fantastic first week back after Christmas and have got stuck straight back into school and our new topic ‘Starry night’. This week we have learned all about nocturnal animals, comparing day and night time, how we can see in the daytime and what helps us see at night time. We can’t wait to explore this further!

 

We have loved exploring our classroom provision this week. We have had fun making nocturnal shadow puppets, writing the names of nocturnal animals, creating clocks, and using fishing nets to find the numbers in our water tray that we have been learning this week. In Literacy this week we have read the story ‘Peace at last’, we used our talking partners to answer questions about the book and discussed why Mr Bear found it so difficult to fall asleep, we spoke about what we do when we find it tricky to get to sleep. In Maths this week we have looked at comparing numbers to 5, we have looked a dot plates and dominoes with up to 5 dots and worked out which dot plate has more or less, and how many more or less. We have also built towers with our friends and compared the towers to see whose tower is bigger or smaller. Next week in Maths we are learning about Mass.  

 

Next week we will continue with ‘Starry night’ and will be reading the story ‘Owl babies’.

 

Well done, Gruffalo's!
