Dear Red Class,
Well done for completing your first full week with clubs. You’ve been stretching in yoga, listening to stories and weaving in fine motor club. From learning letter sounds to using new equipment in Maths and meeting new people in club time, we’ve enjoyed a very busy week. I’m really pleased with how independent you’re being in the morning. Most of you are now completing your jobs without any help from a grown up and some of you have visited the tuck tray too.
This week, Literacy lessons were filled with storytelling. We found out how to use role play props to retell the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We played games in phonics to learn new letter sounds and actions for i, n, m and d and we started to read 2 and 3 letter words e.g. an, pan, tin. We enjoyed reading words on the board and then drawing pictures to match.
In Maths, we explored ten frames in lots of different ways. On Monday, we made a ten frame on the floor using tape and pretended it was a bus. The children enjoyed sitting on the bus to explore numbers to 10. Our class teddies enjoyed riding on the ten frame bus on Tuesday. Later in the week, we used counters on small ten frames. Working in these different ways will help us to identify and understand numbers.
In PE you were very good at moving in different ways around the hall and finding safe spaces. In Write Dance, you created pictures of a volcano using different media (chalk and wax crayons). Can you draw a volcano at home?
Make sure you rest over the weekend and we’ll see you next week Red Class,
Mrs Webb, Mrs Reid and Mrs Cain xxx
