Welcome to Squirrel Class! The adults you will meet in Squirrel class are Miss Hall and Miss Morris.
Both the grown-ups in Squirrel class have enjoyed getting to know you all during our first term together. 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 Squirrel class through our 'Marvellous Me' topic and we have been role playing lots of different events during our 'Celebrations' topic!
This half term we will be reading 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 beasts using the different body parts of animals which already exist. We will also be making up names for our new beasts!
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 call trigraphs. Keep practising your sounds which are sent home at the end of every week.
In Maths we will continue to practise counting forwards up to 20 and we will be trying to count backwards from 20. We will be weighing (pretend) animals in our classroom and even measuring their length. I wonder which animal might be the longest?
