Friday 20 April
The weather has certainly made the week feel like the start of the summer term. It gave us a wonderful opportunity to go outside and start our study on plants and growing. We are enjoying our role play area and pretending to be in a garden centre. We can ‘buy’ pots and seeds and lovely gardening magazines. We will be investigating how plants grow and what they need to flourish. We will even be trying to learn the names of some common plants and trees.
We have been thinking about the traditional tale of Little Red Riding Hood, looking at the story from the wolf’s point of view. He would like to have us think he wasn’t a baddie after all. We will see if he can change our minds by the end of the unit.
We have looked at some very tricky sounds and for clues of how to spell the long ‘e’ and long ‘o’ sounds; such as in beach, leek, toe and low. We continue to improve our phonic knowledge and are also thinking back to phase 3 sounds again to double check we have them all ‘in our heads and under our belts’.
In Maths we have been arranging objects and counting them in groups of 2, 5 and 10 to help us solve some tricky questions.
We anticipate a very exciting half term.
