Time to talk – what have we been doing?
This week we have been doing lots of activities to help us prepare for Easter.
We’ve learnt about the Easter story and we’ve been thinking about how our families will celebrate this special time. On Monday we made some Easter cakes – thank you to the mums who came in to help us! It was lovely to walk down to the church on Tuesday, where we enjoyed taking part in the exciting activities they had prepared for us.
We are continuing to learn the story of The Little Red Hen and we’re becoming really good at retelling the story using our story maps. We’ve been trying to add words like ‘Once upon a time…’ ‘…..who…’ ‘One day….’ ‘In the end…’ We are bringing our story maps home, so that we can continue to practise doing this during the holidays.
In maths this week we have started to learn about more and less (fewer) and we are thinking about which set of objects has more or less.
Following on from parent/carer consultations this week, we are sending home a Read, Write, Inc. letter mat, which will help children to remember the associated rhyme for forming each letter correctly. As always, please do come and ask us if you have any further questions.
We hope you all have a wonderful Easter break!
We had lots of fun during Author week and even got to meet a real author and illustrator. His name was Mike Brownlow and he has written lots of children's books, including Little Robots (which is now on television). The children enjoyed a fantastic workshop with Mike and were inspired to do lots of writing themselves.
