The children had a very busy week! They have now learnt s,a,t,p and are practicing matching the sounds to objects e.g. p for pirate. We practice our names everyday and the stories we enjoyed this week were 'Fetch' and 'The smartest giant in town'. In Numeracy, we focussed on accuarate counting to 6 and 10 and found piles that were more and less. We also started work on shape, finding them in our classroom and playing shape games.
In world around us we explred our senses- each table represented hearing, sight, smell, touch and taste and the children exploring all in a funfilled afternoon. In PE we practiced ball skills- rolling, throwing and catching with control. Our photos also show a range of play based learning activities!
The children have now learnt 2 sounds 's' and 'a' in phonics and are finding objects with these sounds. In lIteracy our books were 'The Haircut' and 'Percy the Park keeper'. We are beginning to form letters by copying visual aids, and we were all able to sequence 5 pictures in order from a familiar story. In maths we focussed on counting accurately, missing numbers to 5 and sorting activities. In World Around Us we made a delicious fruit salad. The children were shown how to use knives to cut fruits and did this independently and sharing with partners, they were all able to do this independently.
In play, the children made Autumn pictures, catperillar finger paints, played new table top games and explained the rules and drew around shapes on whiteboards. The new construction and small world areas of a building site and a city were highlights of play this week.
The children loved their story of the week 'The very hungry caterpillar'. They retold it with puppets and using an acting tray, created art, sequenced the story and had a go at drawing some pictures from the story. We spent some time during world around us celebrating recycling week and European language day. Have a look at some of our play based learning activities in our photos this week.
Finally, we learnt our very first sound in P1, 's'. Maybe the children can share their new 's' the snake is in the grass song at home!
The children had a wonderful week. In Maths we are learning to count to 5 and some children are working between 6-10. We are thinking about the importance of counting in a line and always checking our counting by touching the objects and making sure we have the correct number. In Literacy, we focussed on the books 'at school' and 'Olivers vegetables'. We are learning to put meaning to marks made, distinguish between writing and drawing, retell a simple story in our own words, and writing our name. We had lots of fun activities during play, focussing on making patterns, learning the rules of table top games, using resources to make things in the creative area and being introduced to sand, water and the role-play areas. We also had 2 outdoor play sessions which were very enjoyable. In world around us we are learning all about healthy and unhealthy foods.
