We have been very lucky to have real chicks in our school – the children have really enjoyed making predictions and observations, as well as giving them lots of cuddles! It is lovely to hear the children talk about what they had seen on the YouTube live feed – thank you for continuing the learning at home by watching with them!
In Literacy this week, we are continuing our work on Rosie’s Walk. We will be learning the story, along with Talk for Writing actions to help us remember the narrative. We will be focussing particularly on time connectives and the role they play in our story telling. We will continue: using paper plates and craft materials to make paper plate foxes and hens; acting out the story of Rosie’s Walk in our outdoor area; searching for tricky words hidden inside eggs and under a mountain of hay and writing them into sentences, too!
Our rhyme of the week is ‘Pease Porridge. In Phonics, we will be revising the sounds ar, or, ur, er and ow, making sure that we identify these digraphs when reading and apply them correctly when writing.
In Maths Mastery, we are looking closely at teen numbers. We will be looking at teen numbers as ‘1 ten and a quantity of ones’. We will be representing these numbers in different ways and playing ‘Teen Number Bingo’! We will be using our knowledge of numbers and number facts to help us.
Please remember to check your child’s orange homework folder for this week’s homework.
