Welcome to Squirrel Class! The adults you will meet in Squirrel class are Miss Hall and Miss Morris.
We have really enjoyed getting to know you all during our first term together. You have all made Miss Hall and Miss Morris are both so proud with how well you have settled into your time at Tweseldown.
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, it was so fun telling our friends all about the members of our family and what we like to do with them.
We then read the story of the Jolly Postman and went on an adventure to meet all the different characters who received letters! 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. We are even challenging ourselves to learn all about three letters sounds, which are called trigraphs. Don't forget to keep practising your sounds which are sent home at the end every week.
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 and creating new names for our amazing creations.
We can't wait to continue our amazing learning journey!
