W/ C Monday 16th November 2015


During the week commencing 9th November the children took part in lots of activities based around hedgehogs and hibernation. 

This week the children will be following instructions & recipes to make bread hedgehogs & experiment with air drying clay to create clay hedgehogs too!


Mathematical Development
In our counting sessions we will continue to practise counting forwards, backwards, in Welsh and will continue to count in 2's, 5's and 10's. The children will continue to practise halving and doubling and we will be intoroducing the near  doubles of 1&2=3 and 2&3 =5. In our maths sessions we will also be digit dancing and will be practising forming numbers with correct formation and orientation as well as recognising numbers above 10. 


Language and Literacy
During our literacy sessions we will be recapping the phonic sounds & songs from the last few weeks and will be focussing on learning the letter sounds ai, j, oa & ie.
The children will be listening to a story about each of these sounds and then will learn the corresponding song and action, as well as be introduced on how to form these letters with correct formation and orientation. 


The children will be following instructions to make bread hedgehogs and will be writing instructions to tell someone else how to make them too! 

We will of course be doing individual reading with the children too!   


Creative Development & Knowledge and Understanding of the world

There will be lots of lovely creative activities on offer in our classroom and One of our focussed tasks will be to explore and experiment with air drying clay to make a clay hedgehog.


 We didn't get around to completing our scissor skills activity last week so the children will also be practising their scissor skills by making their very own spiky hedgehog.


Remember, Friday we have an INSET Day so no school for children this week. 


Our PE sessions this half term will be focussed on gymnastic activities. Why not ask your child to show you their "frog hopping" and "foxes" movements? This week we will explore 'happy cat' and 'angry cat'.
