P is for poppy
Wow- what a busy week in Foundation Stage! On Monday we talked about Remembrance Day. We watched a beautiful short animation film together https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/poppies. We worked collaboratively to create a huge poppy as well as making our own interpretations. The children were so respectful as they stood with the rest of the school for two minutes of quiet reflection time. We were very proud of them!
Our learning this week has been based on the Percy the Park Keeper story ‘After the Storm’. We had lots of fun designing and making houses for the animals who had lost their homes in the storm. It was brilliant to see children applying their phonic knowledge so confidently to label their pictures. In maths we have been using the language longer/shorter/longest/shortest. We have also been busy measuring using cubes and blocks. We have also looked at the number six and have had a go at making it in different ways.
In phonics we have learnt h, b, f, ff as well as tricky words ‘go’ and ‘the’. The children really enjoyed showing their parents all their fabulous learning at our early reading workshop.
Next week we will be reading lots more Percy the Park Keeper stories and we will be thinking about the change in seasons as the weather becomes increasingly chilly!
