Spring Term Updates

W/B 29/3/2021

Woo woo! We made it to Easter!!! This week we have been so busy learning all about the Easter Story and Jesus. We have been learning about New Life and why we have Easter Eggs. In our continuous provision this week, we have been busy printing patterns onto eggs, cracking open eggs with different scissor patterns, playing with the small world farm animals, learning about mothers and their young. On the writing table we have been writing all about what we would see in spring and we have loved making our friends and family Easter Cards. 

 

After Easter we will be sharing the story of ‘Errol's Garden'. Here is a list of interesting words for you to explore over Easter: 
growing
garden
apartment/flat
dream
perfect
roof garden
vegetables

 

Have a lovely Easter. See you in two weeks!

Well done to the Gruffalos!

We have had another busy and exciting week.  We have continued to enjoy our Dinosaur Museum in our role play area. Our story this week has been, "Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs." We found out that Harry liked taking his dinosaurs to lots of different places. For our writing activity we thought about  the different  places that  we could go to with our toy dinosaurs.  We wrote about going to the park, the beach and even the farm!  We thought carefully about all the letter sounds we know as we wrote simple sentences. In our number work we have explored subtraction. We had some leaves and a very hungry dinosaur who took some of the leaves away. We counted how many leaves he had left for us.  In our creative area we have used white art straws to make some pictures of the skeletons of the different dinosaurs. We have also looked at pictures of a volcano and  had an  exciting time in our outdoor area making a volcano!

 

Next week  we will  be reading a wonderful story called, "Dora's Chicks, " as we think about Easter time.

We have made a list of some interesting words for you to explore.

Well done Gruffalo's on a brilliant first week back at school. It has been lovely to see you all back in the classroom, playing with your friends and having so much fun together! You will all be very tired tonight!

 

This week we have been thrown straight into book week. Our story of the week this week was 'It's your world now'. We  loved reading this story. We loved everything about this story including the illustrations, the lessons and we especially the last lesson number 3 which was all about love. In our continuous provision, we designed our own front covers all about our own world, we have created and painted our own colour monsters out of playdough and paint. Each day our water in our water area was a different colour to represent the colour monsters and on our writing tables we wrote cards to all the people we love.

 

In Phonics this week we have recapped all our set 1 sounds and green words. We have looked particularly at the sounds ch, sh, th, qu, ng and nk. We have read the red words no, I  and the. In Math's this week we have looked at 3D shapes, exploring the shapes, sphere, cylinder, cube and cuboid. We have also had a little look  number bonds to 10 using Numicon.
