As part of our ‘Amazing Animals’ topic the children helped Mrs Taylor to turn the role play area into a vets. The children thoroughly enjoyed using all the new equipment and trying on the Vet’s coats! They are now looking forward to treating lots of patients in the next few weeks!
In Art, we have continued to explore different ways of changing fabric. We used food colouring to dye the white fabric. We dipped the corners in different colours and then used paintbrushes to paint a pattern, or picture, using the food colouring as well. We also explored different ways of joining fabric together. We used glue, paste, staples, sellotape and masking tape.
In phonics, we are working on blending and segmenting words containing four phonemes. We have been finding pictures around the classroom and writing a list of what we found, setting trails for our friends to read Phase 4 words, and playing lots of games, such as ‘roll and read’, and ‘snakes and ladders’, to practise our reading.
In Maths we have been building numbers from 11-20, recognising how many full tens and ones are needed to make the number.
We finished off the week with Story Club. We put on our pyjamas and onesies, snuggled down with our teddies and enjoyed five stories with Mrs Barker. We enjoyed milkshake, popcorn and biscuits while we listened to the stories we had voted for.
