Early Years

Maths- This week we have been looking at number bonds to 10, using the ‘Farmer Pete’ song for support. The children have spotted that the numbers can change around and that they still total 10. We used number bond sticks to find all the number bonds to 10. The children are so confident and can now do this mentally! Well done!

 

Literacy- This week we have looked at the different characters in the story of ‘Chicken Licken’. We have made our own story map but have changed the characters. It has been fun thinking of rhyming words for the characters, such as, ‘sheepy leepy’. 

 

Phonics- We have been recapping over set 2 sounds so the children can build up their confidence in using and applying their new phonic knowledge. Reception children have focussed on oo, oo, ar, or and nursery children have been recapping i, n, g, o

 

Provision for All- This week our little chicks have hatched! We have been learning all about looking after them and what they need to stay healthy. We are taking turns to clean, feed and water the chicks to keep them happy before they return to the farm. The children have also been so interested about continuing to be Earth Savers and we have been looking at the use of palm oil in our food and products and how this is a problem for the rainforests, in particular, orang-utans. I’m sure the children will be checking all the labels in the cupboards now!

We are doing Athletics this half term and the children have been competing in different races to win the trophy. If your child comes home with this, then they are able to keep it for the week and return back on the Friday for the next child! Well done to last week’s winner, Emily!
