This week we have been learning the sounds cr,br,fr and bl.We are now finishing our retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk and planning our very own versions with our own characters and magical events! The children have come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful ideas, their creative flair certainly on show ! Watch out for stories based in the desert (where a giant cactus leads up to the sky) , rainbows and the most desperate and sad characters who really deserve a happy ending !
The children have individual targets for their writing but we are trying hard to develop properly formed letters (copies will be available on Parent's Evening) , most letters are started from the bottom in the pre-cursive style. The letters should either be tall (like t,l,k,h,d,b,) or small (such as e,a etc) or go under the line (y,g,p,f) If you can reinforce this at home on a 1 to 1 basis this would be great!.
In maths we have been learning about Place Value , so the value of Tens and Ones (or units as we also call them). We have started on the teen numbers and progressed from there. The children have enjoyed playing a game called 'Shark Numbers' where the children can use towers of 10 and ones and match them to a number. You can choose a range of numbers that the children feel comfortable with.
We hope you enjoy our Coffee Morning and look forward to seeing you at Parent's Evening!
