This week our final home learning topic has been 'Life in the Garden'. We have been exploring a variety of animals, insects, plants and flowers throughout the week, going on scavenger hunts, mini-beast hunts and creating fact files.
On Thursday, we celebrated world book day as a class, sharing a special Google Meets sessions where we shared a story together, discussed our favourite books and shared our costumes. The children were set a challenge to create a story character using a toilet role tube. Here are some examples of what the children created with a little help from their families! :) The children were encouraged to share stories at home and draw pictures of their favourite books and places to read.
In phonics, we have been learning two new graphemes - 'ir' and 'air'. The children have been writing labels and captions for the mini beasts they have found and completed a story map for Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider.
For our Maths learning this week, we have been exploring number bonds to 10, using 10 frames. The children have enjoyed making giant frames at home using natural objects and have written number sentences and solved problems. It has been quite challenging for some, but lots of practise this week with concrete objects has really helped them all to succeed and overcome the challenges.
We are looking forward to welcoming the class back into school on Monday after 8 weeks of hard work at home and in our critical worker club in school.
Have a lovely weekend,
