Animals – Sea/water

This week we have been:

Learning about sea animals. We read a story called ‘By the sea’. We looked at different animals that you see when we go to the beach. We had fun exploring rock pools in class and looking at shells in the sand. We also made homes and pools for the water animals using the big blocks. With the lovely weather at the moment we also looked at summer. We read a story called ‘Moles summer story’ learning about different activities we can do in the summer that we can not do in winter. We also looked at the types of clothing we wear at the moment and what we need to do to be ready for the sun, wearing a sun hat and sun cream.

In phonics this week we have been focusing on blending the sounds we have learnt to make words. We will be recapping the sounds over the next few weeks but please continue this learning at home. It would be great to see some sound work in the children’s home learning books.

In maths this week we sang ’10 fat sausages’ using the pan and sausages to help us, we learnt how to count down in 2’s. We also extended our learning on 3D shape by looking at the words ‘flat and solid’ to describe the shapes and sort them using a game on the board.

This week we finished our learning about Ancient Greece by talking about the Olympics. We learnt about the very first Olympics, where it started and what has changed over the years.

On Friday we had great fun making pancakes using dinky’s eggs!! We mixed flour, eggs and milk and cooked them in a pan. We then put either strawberries, bananas, cream, strawberry sauce or syrup on top before we got to eat them! They were yummy.

This week we also met our reception teachers. They read us a story and we sang some songs together. They will be coming to visit us again next week and we will be going to see our new classrooms too!!

Next week we will be:

  • Continuing our learning on sea animals.
  • Continuing blending using our sounds.
  • Counting how many we have and writing the number to match.
  • Thinking about sharing and making something special for someone we care for.
  • Learning about Baptism.

Thank you for your ongoing support, Mrs Herne.
