Jigsaw’s May learning

This month the Jigsaw children have been very busy both in Jigsaw and in the outdoor learning area with the Nurture group.

In Guided reading we have continued to focus on books that support BIG emotions. The children have worked thoughtfully and reflected on the different situations that the characters find themselves in, in the story.

One of the new books we have read in under the same sky. There is a picture below of the book.

In Literacy we have continued to work on the RWI texts, with children working hard to create, imagine and record their ideas about the stories. We are very excited that there are 2 children returning back to class for Literacy as they have made so much progress! Well done to them.

In maths we have focussed this half term on multiplication and division. The children have worked to understand and use their knowledge of shared facts from the times tables to solve equations and make links to their mental arithmetic questions. Below are some examples of the children’s work.

In the afternoon the Nurture group children have focussed on team work, developing positive relationships and sharing similar interests within their learning. A big part of this was playing, developing and trying new games, where turn taking, sharing and compromise are really important. Below there are some images of the children working.
