Mouse Class

Welcome to Mouse Class. 

We have really enjoyed getting to know you all during our first term together. You have made Miss Saunders so proud with how well you have settled into your time at Tweseldown. You have been so resilient, kind and caring to your friends.  

We have been accessing lots of fun activities together across the seven areas of learning and development; Literacy, Maths, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design and Communication and Language.  

So far, we learnt about ourselves and our friends in Mouse class through our 'Marvellous Me' topic and we have learnt all about the Jolly Postman. We even got the chance to meet a Postman who delivered us special letters! Mrs Tottem gave us the challenge to write a party invitation to our grown-ups to invite them to our Christmas Party. We wrote these invitations, went for a walk to post them, and had a magical Christmas Party! 

We have already learnt lots of sounds in phonics. We are now learning two letters which make one sound, these are called digraphs, and three letters which make one sound, which are called trigraphs. Keep practising your sounds which are sent home at the end every week. What words can you make with your sounds? 

In Maths we have practised counting forwards up to 10. We have focused on subitising and working out ways to make different numbers up to 10. Keep looking out for different numbers on your journeys to school! 

This half term we will be learning about ‘amazing animals’ and creating our own ‘brilliant beasts’! We will be discovering some fascinating facts about animals and finding out where some animals live. We will create our own beasts using the different body parts of animals which already exist. We will also be making up names for our new beasts! I wonder what your favourite animal is…
