This week we have been enjoying Autumn activities.
We have been looking at the Autumn leaves, cones and nuts.
In Maths, we have been rolling the dice and making that number of holes with the hole punch on the leaves.
Outside, one of our activities was to roll the conkers down the tube and counting them!
Messy play is always great fun!
Starting phonics this week was amazing! We have been tracing the letters in the sand and we’ve even practised writing some of the letters!
The letter sounds we have learnt this week are s a t p.
The sun has come out at last! 🌞
At the beginning of the week we talked about our world and the plants and trees that share our world. Then everyone followed the instructions which told us how to make a cress pot.
Another busy activity this week was making tickets. This involved writing information on small pieces of paper which has really helped with the size of our writing, as sometimes it can get rather large.
On Tuesday we had our Sports Afternoon. What a fantastic time we had, everyone joining in and cheering each other on!
The tricky words we are learning this week are here and other.
Capacity has been the focus of our learning this week. Mastery Meercat asked if we could work out which container held the most cubes, then counting the cubes in each container to see if we were correct.
Another activity was exploring with the sand and containers, estimating and counting spoonfuls.
Clowns are still a topic of conversation and activities. This week we have been painting a clown’s face, using the water colours and fine brushes. We have created many great works of art!
Clowns need clothes so another activity was to dress the clowns in outfits. We have some budding fashion designers in our classes!
Because it has been raining such a lot this week and we have not been able to go outside much, we have been practising the art of yoga and we are getting very good at listening to instructions.
The tricky words this week are once and house.
