We have had a wonderful week. It was so lovely to have some sunshine.
Maths: We have continued with the language of more than, greater than, less than, fewer than, equals to and the same as. We have added in greatest and least to the sets of objects we have been looking at. Please continue to use the language at home to really embed this learning. We have continued working on one more and one less than a number to 10.
English: The children made ‘speedy telescopes’ on which they wrote, ‘I can see’ using their best handwriting. We then rehearsed saying some of the underwater things we could see on our display using our telescopes. We looked at an underwater poster and picked different objects and wrote adjectives to describe it, for example, shark – mean, fierce, grey, pointy nose etc. The children did some super writing yesterday using the structure, I can see …. . It is …. and … . They wrote some fantastic sentences.
Phonics: The children have continued working on the phase 3 sounds especially ea and ee and they have looked at words which contain these sounds. They have been reading lots of words especially ones in which they need to recognise the two letters make one sound.
RE: We have continued examining the parable of the Lost Son. The children thought of the literal end to the story, the father being happy at his sons return and throwing a party and recorded this on the outside of an envelope. They then thought about the hidden message that Jesus was trying to show in this parable; God loves us and forgives us. They then recorded the hidden message inside the envelope.
Have a great weekend. Please remember to come and talk to me if you have any issues, concerns or worries, however big, small or seemingly insignificant I am here to listen.
