Monday, 28th January

This week we will be exploring a range of different texts.

We will start by looking at the story ‘The Enormous Turnip’, followed by ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and then finally we will look at the story ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’.  In our literacy sessions we will be looking at writing a shopping list using our phonic skills.

In our maths sessions we will be looking at weight and using vocabulary to compare.  In our maths area we will have a weighing station set up with a range of vegetables to order by weight.  In our challenge area we will have a range of themed numbers for children to sort into groups of odd and even.

The children have enjoyed developing their upper arm strength in our writing area last week by writing under the table.  This week we have set up a secret den with torches and clipboards to write notes to the ‘troll’ from the text ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’.  In the construction area we will be building bridges for the goats to cross and outside we will be using masks to act out the story.

In phonics we have been looking at the tricky words he, she, be, we and was.  This week the children will be taking part in a word hunt outside using some of the phase 3 digraphs we have learnt during lessons.
