A big, huge well done to all the children in F2 for completing their sport Relief mile. It was a long way for those little legs but we did it!! Thank you very much for any sponsor money raised, it will go a long way towards helping those who need it most.
BEWARE OF THE BEAR!
Our current theme for Literacy is instruction writing and the children have decided to write a set of instructions for how to trap a bear! The children have recently finished writing their own version of Little Red Riding Hood, called Little Blue. Instead of a big bad wolf the children added a big grizzly bear into their story. After a little investigation, we have discovered that the bear has escaped from the story and is roaming free around Well Lane!! We even found evidence that he had been in our classroom after finding mud scattered everywhere and hearing a growling noise. We needed to act fast! The children wrote their own set of instructions which included digging a whole, covering it with sticks and leaves and placing a jar of delicious honey on the top. Now we just have to wait and hope we catch him soon. Wish us luck!!
We had a fantastic day out at Chester Zoo, despite the weather!, and the children thoroughly enjoyed seeing their favourite animals. We still have more work to do in class linked to our trip but the children are currently enjoying completing a tally chart of their friends favourite animal.
On Wednesday we went to Rock Ferry library. We heard the story 'The Cave' by Rod Hodgeson and made a wolf mask. We had a great time and now have our own copies of the book to enjoy again and again at home.
Our new book is about a real-life superhero. She is super brave, super strong and super sneaky.
We have enjoyed all our superhero activities.
Take a look at what we have been learning about this term so far...
The children have enjoyed the story of The Star in a Jar, for our Literacy topic. Watch us act it out and retell the story in our own words.
The children have enjoyed talking about Autumn and using objects such as conkers, acorns, leaves etc to explore and create artistic pictures and representations of objects. They have mixed Autumn colours and used these in their designs.
PE is a huge success and the children love going in to the big hall to work on different tasks and games. A great way to release lots of energy!
We have been focusing a lot on numbers and embedding those basic skills of counting and solving number problems, whilst focusing on mathematical language such as more, fewer, less etc.
F2 Curriculum Overviews
Each day Felicity the phoneme fairy brings the children a new phoneme (sound). The children are getting great at recognising them and hearing them in words. Lots of robot talk at home will continue to support the children in hearing those sounds which will support them in developing their reading and writing skills.
Have a look at the attached phoneme mat to see which sounds your child will learn in F2 and encourage them to practice at home too!
Parent Phonics Workshop
Thank you for attending the parent workshop.
The children enjoyed sharing their learning with you.
Remember to continue to use some of the activities to support your children at home.
The children have been exploring what happens when they mix colours. We looked at the changing colour of autumn leaves and tried to mix our own colours of paint. We also explored what happens when you put colour filters over our torches.
