We are working hard every morning to learn sounds. This week we have also started to practise blending sounds together to read words.
Outside the children worked together to join the tyres with planks. They chose different lengths of planks to fit the space between the crates. If the planks were wobbly they said they weren't safe and adjusted them. They also helped one another up the ramps and round the large tyres. Great teamwork Bear Cubs!
In Maths we have been learning that 1 add 1 add 1 add 1 makes 3.
We have been noticing the changes in the weather and trees outside. On Wednesday we visited the horse chestnut and oak tree to collect their seeds.
We have been reading a new story 'Farmer Duck' about a lazy farmer who stays in bed all day eating chocolates while the poor duck does all the work. This has made us think about ways we can get the farmer healthy and we have been cutting out healthy food to stick in his fridge. We have also been making areas for the farm animals in small world.
We have been at school just over a week now so take a look at what we've been doing. We have been busy learning how to play in the different areas of our classroom, learning sounds to read, teaching bunny to count objects and learning to mix brown and paint owls (because we have been reading a book called 'Owl Babies.')
I have to say a huge thank-you to all parents and grandparents because the children have been wonderful!
