The end to our penultimate week and it just whizzed by. Our book this week was ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson. We played the ladybird counting game in pairs, rolled a dice, counted the spots and placed counters on the ladybird. It helped to reinforce our maths skills but also our ability to take turns. We continued practising our number formation and writing our names.
In PSHE this week our focus was that we need to have kind hands. We talked about not hurting others and talking through our feelings when things may not go our way. We drew around our hands and wrote down some of the kind and fun things we use our hands for- drawing, baking and playing on the computer were high on the list!
Our letter sound this week was ‘p’ and as you can see in the photos, the children’s letter formation (as well as their phonic knowledge) is progressing very well. Mrs Gilliam and I are so proud of how well they are doing. They will be ‘Reception-ready’ in no time!
We concluded our RE topic of ‘Celebrating’ this week by having our own ‘celebration’. I told the children that is one of the class dolls’ birthday and gave them everything they needed to have our own birthday bash for him. We made cards and hats and even wrapped presents for Sam before dancing to our favourite songs.
Have a wonderful weekend and we look forward to seeing you Monday.
Mrs Carpineta and Mrs Gilliam.
