This term our topic is The Scarecrows’ Wedding by Julia Donaldson.https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61BooOtvyuL._SY433_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

We have really enjoyed learning the story and have been participating in lot of activities related to the story, for example: writing a wedding list, writing wedding invitations and most recently following instructions on how to make a wedding cake. Yum Yum!  Mrs Rees has lots more activities planned and we can’t wait.

We have been working hard to becoming great storytellers by learning to retell the story using a story map to aid us.  We are becoming much more confident at using our expression.

In Maths we have been busy learning our number bonds to 10. Number bonds are two number that go together to make 10, for example:  6+4 ,   1+9   Can you think of any more number bonds to 10?

Hit the button is one of our favourite games in class. Why don’t you have a go and see how quick you can be?

In topic time we have been learning about the seasons and focussing our learning on Autumn. We have been observing what is happening in our local environment and noticing changes that have occurred. We really enjoyed our Autumn walk and spotted lots of changes. We have also been learning about what happens to the animals at this time of year and how we can help to look after them. Harvest is another important event that happens at this time of year. We went out and harvested the apples from our school apple trees.  We had so much fun! In preparation for our Harvest Festival we have been learning two songs.

In Science with Mrs Probert we are learning about the human body. Recently we have been focusing on the 5 senses and how they help us to explore the world around us.  Can you name the 5 senses?

In Phonics we are learning the Phase 3 sounds and have begun to learn digraphs (two letters which make one sound when put together for example:  sh, ch, th etc.) There are around 25 of these, mainly made up of two letters. Alongside these, we are continuing to be taught to recognise more common exception words for example ; ‘was,’ ‘my,’ ‘you’ and ‘they’ etc. 

Here are some games that you may like to play, to practise your phonics:
