Christmas Fever has well and truly hit this week! Mrs Braddock and Miss Broadhurst have turned our role play area into a cosy Christmas corner for us to play in. We also hear that Father Christmas will be visiting for our Christmas Fayre and this is where he will be sitting - hopefully he approves!
On Thursday morning, we also found an Elf had arrived from the North Pole to keep an eye on us for Santa - we can't wait to see what he gets up to!
This week we have been continuing to learn to read words with 's' on the end. We know to cover up the 's' and blend the word first and then add the 's' back on at the end. We also learnt that some words that have a 's' on the end make more of a /z/ sound like bags, dogs, pins and rings.
We haven't learnt any new sounds this week - so have recapped everything we have learnt so far!
The home learning sheet is attached below if you would like to have a go at home!
Other learning this week:
In maths we have been learning to add on one more to numbers up to 5. We had number fans and had to show the correct answer on the carpet when a number was revealed on the board. We then played a practical game with cubes adding on one more with Miss Broadhurst and this really helped us see and understand adding one more!
In literacy we wrote Plot Point 3 of 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. We thought of words to describe the mud - we came up with some brilliant words like squelchy, slimy, slippy, pongy, yucky, smelly, squodgy, gross.
In RE with Mrs Lea we heard the nativity story and discussed it. We then ordered pictures of the story and had a go at retelling it.
We have been practicing our Nursery Rhyme Nativity songs most days - we are getting really good at the words now! If you would like to have a go at home too click here which will take you to a YouTube Playlist of all the songs. Some children have lines to learn and these were sent home in book bags - if you could have a go at practicing these too that would be greatly appreciated.
