What a busy week we have had!
We started the week off by creating our very own book about the 'Naughty Bus.' We had to work hard to try and use our Phase 3 and 4 phonic skills, capital letters and full stops. During maths, we focused on coin recognition and we have been learning to add coins together. This is something we will continue next week, as well as subtracting coins.
On Thursday, we all went to Old Holly Farm. It was so much fun! The children fed the animals, collected eggs from the hen house, completed farm craft activities and discovered lots of fascinating facts about the milking process. In fact, Old Holly Farm provide milk for McDonalds!!! Think of all those milkshakes!
We have had a great week!
Have a lovely weekend.
What have we been learning this week?
Friday 15th June 2018
This week we have had a fantastic time learning all about the 'Naughty Bus'. We created story maps to show the journey the Naughty Bus made. This helped us to think about how the characters felt when the bus let them down.
We have been using money and making bus tickets in the maths area. We are looking forward to using the outdoor Ice-cream Shop. This will give us another real context for our learning.
This week we have continued to use ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ as inspiration to help us write speech bubbles and riddles for different jungle animals.
We have been working on subtraction in our maths work and learning how to cross out to take away.
We have continued to develop our Vets role play, making posters for the walls and in RE we have been learning about the story of Pentecost.
This week we have been looking at an animal information book and making our own question and answer books about lions. We have been painting animal patterns and and finding out about the Jungle.
In our maths work we have been doing lots of work using a number line- jumping back to take away. We have also been making sure we understand and use the language of subtraction.
During RE we had a great time making streamers and flags to help spread the good news of Jesus and explored the power of the Holy Spirit by blowing bubbles and making bubble paintings.
We have made good use of the dry weather to practise some of our sportsday activities.
This week we have been continuing to look at the book 'Mad about Minibeasts'.
We read some clues to try to identify the bugs hiding in the garden. Then we made our own 'Who am I ? game by writing clues . We have been very creative, making some paper chain caterpillars and painting some symmetrical butterflies.
In Maths we have been learning about 'big numbers'. Some of us played 'Butterfly bingo' learning to identify numbers up to 20 and then we looked at other 2 digit numbers and learnt how to find them on a 100 square.
We have started a new RE topic about friends and have been exploring our own experiences of having and being a friend. We loved making a friendship bracelet for someone in the class. It was quite tricky so it was good practice for our fine motor skills too.
