This week in OR class the children have been excitedly telling each other about what they have been up to during the holidays.
In literacy this week we introduced our new topic of Space. We discussed what the children already knew about space, and the children wrote down what they knew. We talked about some of the things we would like to discover about space over the coming weeks.
In maths we have been looking at number recognition of numbers up to 20. We have been working on putting these numbers into the correct order. In phonics we have been revising all of the sounds learned so far.
We also decided on a theme for our role play area. The children decided that they would like it to be a space station and rocket. We have been busy preparing it this week, and deciding on what to add to it. We looked at a book about space, and noticed that all of the planets look quite different. We decided to paint our own planets to decorate the role play area. Each child chose the colours they would like for their planet, with some children mixing colours to achieve their desired colour.
