In phonics we are going to focus on b and d this week, as these two letters are causing lots of children some confusion! We will also be revising all of the digraphs that we have so far introduced.
In maths we will focus on addition - having a go trying hard to use counting on as a method to find answers and recording in simple ways.
We have whole class and small group times each day where key objectives are introduced and practised. Children then have opportunity to consolidate and practise these skills (and much more) through adult supported play and exploration across the week.
Our book of the week continues to be A Place Called Home. We will be focussing on a part of the story where the children land on a watery planet. To help, could you upload to Tapestry any pictures you have of visits to watery places? Cleethorpes, ponds at Normanby, big puddles, garden ponds, holidays... Any photos that show features of the environments (eg piers, seaside shops) and / or creatures that are commonly seen near or in water would be useful. Thank you!
On Thursday we have a special treat - A Place Called Home workshops (in school). There will be drama, music and story telling! We are really looking forward to the morning!
