Welcome to Ladybirds class!
Ladybirds staff Miss Lewis and Miss Eaton
Our focus this week has been Space. We have had a wonderful time and it has created many learning opportunities. We have learnt about the stars and made our own constellations, learnt about the 8 planets and made a class solar system, designed our own aliens, done marble painting and much more. The children have shown such enthusiasm for this topic that we are going to continue it next week. I wonder if they could share any facts they have learnt about space with you?
This week we have looked at the letters e, u and r and have spent some time looking at the tricky words ‘I, no, go, to, the and a’. I wonder if the children can sing you our tricky word song?
We are still revisiting rhyme and finding that children are not yet confident in spotting rhyme in a spoken word or in continuing a rhyming string. It would be appreciated if this is something that could also be practised at home.
We have focused on early number and representing these numbers in a variety of ways. The children have also been subitising numbers 1, 2, 3 and recognising them in different forms such as dice spots, the numeral, counters, objects and numicon. They have also seen these numbers displayed in different ways on a five frame. We have been on number hunts and played ‘odd one out’ to continue the children’s learning through play.
Please make sure that you accept the invite sent to you for Parent Consultations or decline if you cannot make the appointment.
We have noticed that some girls have nail varnish on, please can you support us in ensuring they do not wear this to school.
We are slowly approaching the end of an unusual but successful term, thank you for your continued support.
