Learning Lens - 17th March

 We have come to the end of another week! 

And what a week...highlights have been, playing in the home corner, reading, pop up pirate, writing my numbers, drawing my mummy, making things and building castles!

A very Happy Mother's Day to all the special ladies in the children's lives! We hope you all manage some rest this weekend!  

Phonics -  a, i, m, s, t, n, p, o, b, c, g, h, d, f, v, e, k, l, r, u, j, w, z, ll, zz, ss, ff. This week we continued to practise using the sounds we know. Lots of writing and word building this week, practising letter formation. 

We have enjoyed sharing stories about mums and growing. 

In Maths the children have used their visualising skills by looking carefully at arrangements of dots and then closing their eyes to explain what they ‘see’. The children will used their subitising skills (seeing the quantity without counting) to build on their understanding of equal amounts, and they will investigate equal groups.

For RE this week, we continued our new big question: Why do Christians place a cross in an Easter garden? Today we shared the Easter story again, looking at what happened on Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. As a class, we created a story map. We also remembered why it is a happy time for Christians and why they use a symbol of a cross. 

Congratulations to the certificate winners!

Reading Books-  Both books (class library and child reader) will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. This is to allow books to be read lots of times to help embed Phonic knowledge and develop fluency. Lots of repetition helps with spelling of sounds alongside reading. Thank you for your support in reading with your child.
