We have a very busy and fun filled week ahead of us, celebrating St David's Day on Tuesday and World Book Day on Thursday.
All of the children are welcome to wear Welsh themed outfits on Tuesday and may dress as their favourite book character on Thursday.
Our eggs have arrived and will be hatching this week!
Language & Literacy
In our literacy sessions this week, we will be looking at and reading a variety of non fiction fact books. The children will then be writing their very own fact books about how to look after hatching eggs and chicks.
The children will continue with their guided reading and phonic sessions and will have their one-to-one read with an adult.
In our maths sessions we will continue to practise our counting skills including counting backwards from 20. We will be practising number recognition above 10 and sequencing numbers larger than 10.
We will also be practising counting on from a given number, crossing over through 10.
In our maths focus task this week, the children will be collecting data on a tally chart and learning how to represent the information collected in a simple graph.
The children will have their PE and Games lessons in the hall.
Creative Development & knowledge and Understanding
The children will be able to observe the chick eggs hatching in our investigation area this week. There will be plenty of opportunities for observation drawings and paintings. There will also be plenty of time to hold and care for the chicks. In our small world area the children will be able to build nests and play with small chicks and in our sand trays in the classroom the children will be digging for number eggs and will then order the numbers correctly.
