Welcome to Squirrel Class! The adults you will meet in Squirrel class are Miss Hall and Miss Morris.
Miss Hall and Miss Morris have loved learning with everyone in Squirrel Class this half term, we are both so proud of how hard you work all of the time! 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.
This half term we have enjoyed learning all about our topic, 'Once Upon a Time'. We have read lots of different traditional tales, such as The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have had to keep a look out for all the different characters we have met though, as they keep coming into classroom and making a mess! It has given us so many amazing ideas to write about, as we were inspired to write our own sentences and stories about the messes the characters created!
In Phonics, we have been looking at blending lots of different length words together that contain all of the sounds that we learnt in Phase 2 and Phase 3. We remembered that using our Robot arms helps us to segment and blend the words so we can read them confidently. Don't forget to keep practising all of your sounds and key words that have been sent out to you.
In Maths we have been investigating lots of different Maths concepts! We have been using resources from around the classroom to help us measure the length of the beds that Goldilocks slept in and the height of Jack's beanstalks. We have been looking at different patterns so that we could decorate the Gingerbread man, as well as carefully counting the buttons on his tummy!
We are looking forwards to next half term when our topic will be ‘Under the sea’ We will be reading lots of exciting ocean stories and discovering what animals live under water
