In Every House, on Every Street
This week we continued to look at the book, ‘In every House, on every Street. We talked about our favourite places in our house, naming the rooms. We drew our favourite place then attempted labelling it using the initial sound. We tried very hard to hear the initial sound but also writing it forming the letter correctly.
Maths this week was all about parts and wholes and we worked together in teams putting the parts of a jigsaw puzzle together to make it whole. Making puzzles is a great activity that develops many skills, a brilliant idea to practise at home.
In PE this week we have been continuing to dance and had lots of fun with Mr Syme. In forest school we thought about all the animals that could live in our forest and tried to find their homes. We name lots of animals some big and some small and discounted elephants and giraffes as it’s a bit too cold for them in England. We looked for foxes dens, birds nests, worm holes and lots more but couldn’t actually find the animals so built them some homes just in case.
Our theme for Religious Education continued to be helping one another as a way to show our love for God. The children helped each other make split pin bears. It was very tricky indeed. It’s nice to know we have helpful friends who can help us face a challenge.
Some children were inspired by colourful homes and had a go at creating them using paper and paint. We added some to our small world street.
