week beginning 8th May 2017

In phonics we will learn to read and write with the oi and ow digraphs.


In maths we will continue to work on the concept of counting on to find an answer - if we have counted out one group already, we don't need to count them again, we can just remember how many there are and then count on the second group. We will also continue to have money in the role play.


While playing and talking about camping, some children have begun to talk about features of the environment that campsites might be in - realising things like they are often in the countryside and that we see different things there to in the town. I wonder if you could have a think about the environment you live in over the weekend. What kind of house do you live in? Is it a bungalow or a semi detatched? Do you have a garden? Do you live on a busy or a quiet road? What do you see as you walk along? Are there postboxes? Do you have trees on your road? Are you near to shops? Have a little walk and see what you can spot - add photos and comments to tapestry! 


Our word of the week is "location" - our challenge is to think about what this means, but also to try and list as many different locations as we can.
