This week we are learning…..

Literacy- This week, we will be focusing on a snail theme and writing labels for parts of a snail. We will be reading the story ‘Norman, the slug with the silly shell’ and thinking up our own ideas of what items Norman could use for a shell!

Maths- This week we will be revisiting positional language and measuring distance.

Phonics- This week, we will be  learning aw/or and ue/oo and how they are used in different words. We will also be practising our rhyming skills by playing a game of ‘Wonkey Donkey!’.

Topic- We will be continuing our new topic of ‘Minibeasts’ by learning about snails. We will be learning about the parts of a snail and using Matisses’ artwork called ‘The Snail’ as inspiration to make our own snail art.

Look at what we have achieved last week…

In Maths this week, we have been concentrating on ordering numbers and trying to find missing numbers in a number line. We had missing apples that we needed to peg up in the right order on the washing line and missing coins that needed to find a way back to the treasure chest!

We have been painting minibeasts too. We really focused on the shapes, patterns and colours and were so pleased with the results.

In Forest Schools this week, we cooked sausages and hammered nails. Lots of fun had by all!
