We had so much fun looking at the animals today. The animal lady bought in different animals for us to stroke and hold. We saw two snakes, a tarantula, some geckos, an owl, a baby honey bear and a tenrec.
We had some lovely weather this week so we decided to have our choosing time outside today. The children chose some toys and books to take outside with them. We had lots of fun. We played dodgeball with velcro bibs and balls, we drew some pictures on the ground with chalks, we built with Lego blocks, we read stories, we played with Barbies.
We have been measuring different objects using cubes and counting how many we had to use. We then looked at which objects were longer and which were shorter.
We have been looking at different patterns. The children chose which patterns they were going to use and designed some new clothes for the alien to wear.
This week in maths we have been making rockets using counting cubes. The children built their rockets and counted how many cubes they had used. They then found the correct numbered spaceship and matched it to their rocket. Marcus built a really tall rocket. He counted all of the cubes to 20. Marcus then said “I’ve got 20. Where’s the number?” We looked through the number cards and Marcus was able to identify the number 20. Daisy and Kodiee-Rae worked together to build a rocket using 10 cubes.
Today we have been playing board games with our friends. We have been learning the rules of a game and understanding that we have to take turns when playing games. The children really enjoyed playing different games with each other.
This week we have been learning the sound ‘l’. We looked at pictures that began with the sound and then had to sort out all of the mixed up pictures. Some of them began with ‘f’ and some of them began with ‘l’. The children had to pick a card and come and put it into the right sound card.
this week we have been looking at the sound ‘f’. The children had a go at writing the sound and finding all the things that began with ‘f.’ We then had to tell our partners as many things as we could that began with our new sound.
