We are SO SO proud of all our learners this week! Both at home and at school, you are all FANTASTIC!
As we welcomed the first week in March we have been finding out lots of things about new life in Forest School and at home. Children have noticed new growth of leaves and buds on trees and new life – tadpoles – in the pond area in Nursery. Children have begun to investigate their ideas about how and why this ‘new life’ is happening around them.
In our phonics learning children at home and at school have been enjoying ‘Letter’s and Sounds’ and ‘Listening and Attention’ activities. We have been listening to stories and using our voices articulate the characters in the story and listening for initial, middle and final sounds in words.
Our adult led learning this week has been Mathematics, with a focus on Shape, Space and Measure. Our learning has been based around the story ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ and children have been using 2D and 3D shapes to represent parts of the story. Children have revisited thinking related to position and developed everyday and mathematical language to describe the shapes and blocks they have used in their learning.
We have also enjoyed ‘World Book Day’ this week and children have dressed up or found clues to represent one of their favourite stories.
I am so proud to be part of a team of children, educators and parents/carers who have worked together during this period of change to ensure children still have the best start in life possible! We can’t wait to see you all back next week, have a restful weekend, see you on Monday!
