Signs of Spring (Spring 2)
This week has been busy. We have enjoyed reading all about the Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and the children have started writing their own book which they will continue with next week. In maths we have been working on our number bonds to 10 and we have also been continuing and creating repeated patterns. A special treat was making fruit salad and the children all enjoyed eating the fruit.
This week we began our focus book has been ‘The Tiny Seed’ and we looked at why some of the seeds did not get the right conditions to be able to grow into a flower. We also sequenced the life cycle of a sunflower. Our main focus in maths has been counting up to 10 objects and finding out which amounts go together to make 10.
This week we began our new topic Signs of Spring. We read the story ‘When will it be Spring?’ and looked at some beautiful photocards of signs of spring and then tried to spot some of them in Forest School. We found shoots, buds, daffodils and crocus. We are looking forward to observing the changes over the next few weeks.
In maths this week, we have been looking in detail at the number 9, where it sits on a number line, the composition of the number and how to write it. Next week we will be looking at the number 10 in more detail, particularly thinking about number bonds.
In the first half of the week, the children had sessions with iSingPop! We will be recording their singing for you all to see on Tapestry next week.
On Thursday, it was World Book Day.The children had a wonderful time coming to school in their pyjamas. They spent the morning with their book buddies which was great fun. We have read lots of their favourite bedtime stories too.
