As usual we have had a very busy week in Foundation Stage. We have been learning all about animals that hibernate. We have been looking at non-fiction books and finding out lots of facts. Maybe you could pop in to Milton Road library on the way back from school and check out the non-fiction section. We also looked at recipes and had a go at making our very own Hedgehog bread rolls.
In maths our number of the week has been number 8. The children have been busy counting forwards and backwards to 8 as well as finding different ways to make 8. We have also been focusing on sorting and classifying different objects by size, shape and colour. By classifying and sorting, logical thinking is applied to everyday objects, which is important for later mathematics. Maybe you could could encourage your child to do some sorting at home with everyday objects. Any pictures on EExAt are welcome!
In phonics we have begun to learn j, v, w, x and tricky words ‘he’ and ‘she’. Please check out our phonics information for ideas to help reinforce this learning at home.
We have been on the stage this week to practise our singing and dancing. It is fantastic to see how much their confidence has grown just a term after starting school!
Next week we will be learning about E-safety and the Christmas story, as well as putting the final touches to our nativity show!
