This week we are learning…..

Literacy- This week, we will be focusing on spelling and writing our names. We will be introduce ‘Dough Gym’ which is a dance activity focusing on building finger muscle strength. Alongside our weekly dough gym sessions, we will have a weekly finger gym challenge to focus on strengthening our fine motor skills.

Maths- This week we will be focusing on number 2 and 3. These will be introduced with the help of a class favourite already, Numberblocks. We will learning how to count objects, recognise different representations of the numbers and form the number shapes. We will also be linking story books to the numbers as much as we can.

Phonics- This week, we are learning to recognise and say the sound for the letters s, a, t and p. We will be introducing the letter sounds through Jolly Phonics actions and songs. This week we will be focusing on recognise and matching initial sounds.

Topic- This half term’s topic will be ‘Marvellous Me’ where we will be looking and talking about ourselves, our families, our homes and our senses. This week we will be learning about the stages of growth and talking about how we have changed from babies.

Look at what we have achieved this week…

Acorn class has completed their second week at big school and we are so proud of how well they have settled in to school life.

We started our week with P.E and was able to get changed for P.E in 15 minutes- AMAZING!!!! We were pretty chuffed with ourselves!

In Maths this week, we focused on numbers 2 and 3. We became ‘Two Detectives’ and found ‘Twos’ all around the room!

On our ‘3’ day, we played noughts and crosses and tried to get lines of 3’s!!

On Friday we enjoyed a visit from Elder class where they came and read to us. What a perfect end to a busy week!
