19.10.18

Hope you have a lovely half term.

 

Week Commencing 29th October 2018

This week the children will be exploring the rhyme 'Incy Wincy Spider'. Children will be acting out the story using actions. On Friday children will innovate the story by selecting a different small creature i.e. an ant, a fly etc.

 

In Maths we will be exploring the 'eightness of eight' e.g. where does number 8 appear on the number line? What number comes before it/after it? What does 8 objects look like? What does the numeral look like? what does the word eight look like? etc...

 

Please can you keep bringing in any clean junk modelling materials that you would normally recycle (boxes, tubes, yoghurt pots etc) for the children to use during independent learning.

Many thanks!

 

Have a fantastic week!

 

Thank you

Teddy Bears Picnic-Thursday 18th October

In Reading this week we are going to be planning a Teddy Bears Picnic. On Thursday children will have the opportunity to make their own ham or jam sandwich for the Teddy Bears Picnic. We are also encouraging children to bring to the picnic their favourite cuddly toy from home. Stickers about this event will be going into the children's Reading Record books today (Friday 12th October). If you have any questions about the picnic please speak to your child's class teacher. 

 

In Maths we will be practising our counting using 1:1 correspondence, this means touching or moving each object so we know we have counted it.

 

Please can you bring in any clean junk modelling materials that you would normally recycle (boxes, tubes, yoghurt pots etc) for the children to use during independent learning, our supplies are very low! Many thanks!

 

Have a fantastic weekend!
