This term the children have been learning the story, ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. They had great fun building a bridge outside and acting out the story using the masks. We had some very scary trolls living under the bridge. The children innovated the story to, ‘The Three Rabbits’ and changed the troll to a shark.
In Phonics the children have now learnt all set 1 sounds. They have become very skilled at using these sounds to read and write simple words and sentences. We will begin to learn set 2 sounds next term.
In Mathematics they have become secure in finding one more and one less to 20. They have been learning 2D and 3D shape names and properties. In addition to this they have been busy creating repeating patterns and learning positional language.
We have been on a lovely trip to the Royal Fort Gardens, looking at features of our surrounding environment. The children noticed a variety of different things both natural and man made on our walk to and around the gardens.
