W/C Monday 25th April 2016


We had a great week last week starting our new context for learning -Why don't snakes have legs?"

The children were all very excited about our Zoolab visit and had the opportunity to touch and hold a variety of reptiles. 

This week we will  be continuing with our context and will be sharing the stories of "The skipping rope snake" and "The splendid spotted snake".


Language and Literacy


After our Visit from Zoolab last week the children will be writing all about the different reptiles that they saw and held. We will be focussing on sounding out words according to the sounds the children can hear in them, sitting the letters on 

After everybody has had the chance to write about the Zoolab visit, the children will also be writing Thank You letters to Paul at Zoolab. 


Our individual and guided group reading sessions will continue this week and the children will also have their daily phonics sessions.


Mathematical Development

In our Maths sessions this week the children will be learning to recognise different coins.

The children will be challenged to try and think of the different ways they could pay for items. 


In our focus task activity the children will continue to use the language of measuring to talk about different snakes and will sort snakes according to long and short. The children will also order a set of lengths and then will discuss and investigate different ways to measure accurately how long the snakes are.
