Welcome to Mouse Class.
Well done Mouse Class for coming back to school so well! Every day you have tried your best with big smiles on your faces! Miss Saunders and Mrs Cousins have really enjoyed being back in the classroom with you! 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.
We are so proud of the constant effort you have put into your learning last term, whether it was at home or at school. A big well done!
We have absolutely loved our topic this half term! We have learnt all about Superheroes! We have designed our own superheroes as well as meeting some well-known heroes. We have read ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra as one of our key texts and we have been seeing what trouble the Evil Pea has been up to in the classroom! We loved saving the trapped peas from the wobbly jelly and predicting what we thought would happen to the vegetables in the story! Keep an eye out for those naughty peas at home!
We have also been recapping the phase 3 sounds we have learnt and remembering to add sound buttons to words to help us read new words. We have been sound detectives and have worked really hard to spot the diagraphs and trigraphs in words before we read them. We have been practising blending words together using sound buttons and our robot arm movements. Remember to keep practising all your sounds and key words that have been sent out to you.
In Maths we have met all of the CBeebies Numberblocks to 20! To explore these numbers further we have been finding different ways we can make the number by carefully counting the right amount of objects to match the number. We have also been counting on and backwards from different numbers. Maybe you can count your steps on the way to school!
Next half term our topic will be ‘Once Upon a Time…’ We are very excited for this topic! We will be looking at traditional stories and well-known fairy tales and the children will have the opportunity to become story tellers! I wonder what your favourite fairy tale is...
