Week Beginning 6th June 2016
This week has been a very busy week! We have been reading a poem about growing up in Literacy and writing sentences about what we want to be when we are older. We have also been counting in 2's and 10's in numeracy and practising forming our numbers. Can you practise forming all your numbers correctly at home?
The highlight of our week has been our visit to Blackpool Zoo! We saw lots of animals and some of our favourites included the tigers, gorillas and penguins. Everyone was on their best behaviour and we were very proud.
This week we have read the story 'Tadpole's Promise.' We have done lots of writing to re-tell the story during our Literacy lessons. In the afternoons we have been discussing what promises we could make.
We have also been closely watching our very own tadpoles as they are beginning to change. This week our first tadpole grew his legs!
In Numeracy we have been doing some addition. We have been using our addition skills to help us solve problems. Can you solve some addition problems at home?
This week has been extremely busy! We have been reading the story 'The Very Busy Spider' and doing lots of writing re-telling the story.
On Thursday, we had a special visit from 'The Wild Roadshow.' The children loved seeing lots of minibeasts, some had lots of legs and some were slimy! We were lucky enough to be able to handle the minibeasts, but the Tarantula stayed in his box!!!
This week we read the story Superworm by Julia Donaldosn. We created our own superbugs and wrote sentences about their super powers. We have also been measuring minibeasts. We used cubes and centimetre rulers.
Maybe you could try measuring objects in your garden.
We finished our topic Twinkle Twinkle Little Star this week and had a moon party on Wednesday. We had alien jelly, moon cakes and star biscuits. It was lots of fun.
Next week we will start our new topic Are All Mini Beasts Scary?
