We have had so much fun learning about the farm. We can now look at books independently and talk about the illustrations. We have developed our maths skills using the small world farm. Please question your child on animal names, you’ll be surprised what they know.

From our Inspire session last half term, we have been helping Ralf to identify more, less and the same when comparing amounts. The children worked hard to remember the first step ‘read the question twice’. Well done everybody!
Since Christmas, we have been working hard ‘Down on the farm’. We have been using positional language whilst playing with our resources and have learnt these new words quickly. The children have worked hard on the names of mummy, daddy and baby animals. Ask your child at home to see if they can remember any.
This term, we are learning about ‘Down on the farm’. The children have been finding out information in books and familiarising themselves with farmyard animals. We have worked hard naming heifers, bulls and calves.
In phonics this half term, we have been working hard on recognising the sounds s,a,t,p,i and n independently. The children have focused hard listening to the initial sounds in words and really enjoyed playing the ‘SPLAT’ game.
This half term, we have been thinking all about the lives of others. We have learnt about Diwali the festival of light and had hands on experiences with artefacts from the Hindu culture. We learnt about the story of Diwali and re-enacted the story of Rama and Sita in the small world area.
Autumn has arrived and we have been busy noticing changes in the outdoor environment. Sweeping leaves in the playground helps develop and prepare our muscles with co-ordination and strength ready for writing. We have been busy counting with Cecil and have worked hard on the ‘steps to counting’ which are displayed in the maths area.
We have been so busy over the past weeks exploring the learning environment and fun activities set out daily for us. In phonics, we have been recalling the sounds we know and matching pictures to the initial sound. For our topic ‘Marvellous Me’, we have been learning about our senses. The children have been exploring ‘touch’ this week practically, developing their descriptive vocabulary.
