Week beginning 10th February
This week has all been about love!
We spent our week lovingly baking and learning songs ready for our special people. Thank you so much to our loved ones who came to our Valentine's café, we hope you loved it as much as we did!
We hope you all have a lovely half term! Rest, play and be happy!
Week beginning 27th January
This week in Maths we have been exploring the number 6. We have practised writing the number 6 and looked at ways to represent 6. We used our part part whole model to find the different ways to make 6. We then wrote the calculations for each way we found.
Can you show your grown ups at home how to find the ways to make 6 using part part whole?
We have learnt the sounds of the letters ‘v’ and ‘y’. We have continued to use our Fred talk to sound out words and then blend them back together to read words as well as learning to write the letters. You can practice these below.
We have been practising the tricky word ‘the’. We used ‘the’ in a sentence.
At home can you write some sentences with the word ‘the’? Remember to use capital letters to start the sentence, finger spaces in between the words and a full stop to finish the sentence.
Week beginning 20th January
This week we have celebrated Chinese New Year!
We have been to a different class each day to try new activities and learn all about the celebration of Chinese New Year. Ask us which one we like the best!
We have tasted Chinese food, made a giant Chinese dragon, designed lanterns and learnt a song about Chinese New Year! We’ve had such a busy week!
We have also learnt the sounds of the letters ‘r’ and ‘j’. We have used our Fred talk to sound out words and then blend them back together to read the word.
We practised writing the letters, making sure we started each letter on the line.
Week beginning 13th January
This week we have been explorers! Can you guess where we have been?
We saw some polar animals like penguins, polar bears and arctic foxes! We learnt lots of super facts and used chalk to draw a polar bear! We pretended to be a polar animal and wrote, ‘I am a…’ sentence about what we were.
We have learnt the sounds of the letters ‘h’ and ‘l’. We have practised writing them making sure that they are tall letters.
See the videos below to find out how we write them. Can you practice forming the letters correctly?
In maths we have been finding all the different ways to make 5.
We had 5 penguins and put them on 2 icebergs to find all the different ways.
We have been trying to learn the different ways to make 5 off by heart.
At home you could practise recalling the ways to make 5.
Week beginning 6th January.
We hope you all had a wonderful break and lots of lovely family time.
The children have certainly come back to school ready to learn!
We have been writing about what we got for Christmas.
We had a go at writing the sentence ‘I got a …’
We are trying hard to remember to use a finger space in between each word and a full stop at the end of our sentence. As well as forming our letters correctly.
In maths this week we had so much fun finding out about data handling.
We all went into the hall and wanted to find out the answer to the question:
Which toy do children in Reception like the best?
We sat on the bench of the toy we liked the best. Next we put this information into a graph. We counted the cubes in each column and worked out which toy the children liked the most and the least. The children were amazing at answering questions about the graph.
