Happy New Year and Welcome back
We hope that you had a fantastic holiday and are feeling relaxed and ready to start the new year.
This term we will be starting with the topic "The Little Red Hen".
In maths we will be looking at comparing and measuring, as well as doing lots of counting and problem solving.
In Literacy we will be learning and retelling the story and beginning to read and write in sentences.
In Science we will be exploring materials and what happens to them in different situations.
We will be making and tasting bread.
We will be looking at windmills and how bread was made in the past and how it is made now.
And although we will be incredibly busy with the above, we will also make sure we have enough time to learn lots of new di-graphs and tricky words.
We can't wait to upload some photos of the children learning and having fun!
We have really enjoyed our first topic of "Goldilocks and The Three Bears." We have told the story through yoga, thought about the different emotions of the characters, tasted porridge, learnt about size ordering and done some amazing large and small tree art work based on the woods from around the Three Bears home. Check out our gallery for some photos of all this fun!
Over the next couple of weeks we will be looking at the story of "The Three billy Goats Gruff." If you have this story at home why don't you read it together and enjoy the learning the trolls repeated refrain of "Who's that Trip, Trapping over my bridge?" If you don't have the story but know it why don't you try and retell it from memory.
Today in class we decided to do a kind thing for our friend and make them a friendship bracelet. We asked them what colour they wanted and which colour beads they wanted. When we had finished we told them that "I have made this bracelet for you because you are my friend!" We then thought about what to say if someone gives us a gift. We all made sure that we said "Thank you!"
