ANOTHER BUSY WEEK – During our Come and See (R.E) activities we have responded to all that we have learned during our ‘Myself’ topic. Well done to all the children as they have listened carefully to our readings during this topic and could recall parts of the scripture. The children were involved in our end of topic celebration and wrote their names around a heart scribed with the words” God loves each of us”. Within our phonics session, we have worked on orally blending and segmenting cvc words and have been playing cross the river if you have a p-a-n, etc. The children have also segmented words to help their teacher write lists of objects. During maths, we have focussed on number 2, looking at how to write it, how to make 2 in different ways and we have been making a number 2 less by singing the rhyme 10 fat sausages. We have also looked at shapes related to 2 – semi- circle and cone, as they have two sides/faces. During the afternoon, we have continued to think about our senses and focussed on our sense of smell. The children have been involved in an investigation to see if they could identify the different smells whilst blind folded and discussed which smell was their favourite. In the outdoor area, the children have been making representations of their face using the natural materials, making sure that they included at least four of their five senses.
