Lambs, Zip wires and Den building... Well it’s been another busy week for our lovely Oak children. Thank you to all the parents I have already spoken to this week on the phone or Google Meet and to those I have already booked appointments with. If you still want an appointment slot, I have some still available on Monday and Tuesday or can arrange another time that suits better if needed. Its been really great getting to meet you all and discussing the great work your little ones have been doing.
We started our week with a visit from two gorgeous baby lambs (shout out to Charlie’s mum Helen for providing our inspiration again) which have then been the spring board for our information text we have been writing all about baby lambs. We have a little more work to do on them but then I will post a selection of them here for your perusal.
In maths this week, we have been adding numbers up to 20 using physical objects- the progress the children made from the beginning of the week to the end in this was huge. I was so impressed with their independent work today solving a range of number sentences using cubes to help them.
This week we have been lucky and had 2 forest school sessions- 1 where we tied our own zip line and flew between the trees and another today where children were building dens – fine and gross motor skills were very much tested today and I was amazed at the results. I think I managed to catch a snap of everyone here.
Next week, we will be moving on from our farm topic and onto our new exciting Explorers topic- we will be exploring the world for real and in our imagination and learning all about famous explorers now and in the past. We are going to write and act out our own exploring adventure stories and make some equipment to use as props too. In maths we will be applying the skills we learned this week but to the inverse operation by moving on to subtraction within 20.
I’m looking forward to seeing how the children rise to the new challenge.
Have a lovely weekend.
