Week 7: 13th October 2018

We have revisited the sounds 'ou' and 'oy' this week and spent the rest of our Phonics sessions recapping previous sounds - practising sounding out and spelling words with these sounds and then applying these spellings to sentence writing.


We started off our English this week by writing invitations to our grown ups. We had a great time thinking about the information we needed to give you. We really  enjoyed writing and decorating them but our favourite part was walking to the post box to post them. We hope you enjoyed your surprise when it arrived on your door mat!

Once back from our walk, we look at features of a recount such as time connectives (first, next...) and even adverbs (carefully, quickly...). We then used all of this learning to write our own recount of events. We sequenced pictures and then wrote a sentence for each one.


We then continued to look at 'Voices in the Park' by Anthony Browne in English. We sequenced events from the story this week and wrote captions to match the pictures and make a story map.We used the learning from our recount writing to support this. 


Our Maths focus has been using the language of more and less and words that mean the same such as greater, fewer, small and bigger. We have then compared numbers using this language and used resources to prove our thinking. We have looked at 1 more and 1 less using resources such as cubes and number lines too. 


We had our final session of PE with Mrs Charles for this term, developing our hand-eye co ordination through throwing and catching games, Mrs Shirley did a great listening activity with us during circle time and we have been singing Harvest songs like there's no tomorrow!! 


Next week's learning will be...


Our focus text in English will be 'Where's my Teddy?' by Jez Alborough.

Our weeks Phonics will all be recapping the set 2 sounds that we have looked at this term. 

In Maths  we will be consolidating our learning on using different Maths resources and our understanding of number concepts.

We will be looking at changing seasons for our Science learning, hopefully going on a local area walk to look for signs of Autumn to support this.
