This week the book is The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. The children have been showing a real interest in mini beasts so we thought this would be a good story to focus on. We will also discuss the life cycle of a butterfly. The children are seing more and more of them outside so it will be good to understand the life cycle.
We will be continuing to do writing through story scribing, writing dictated sentences and independently writing our own sentences.
In maths we are revisiting shapes by looking at the properties and then the children might create models, pictures and patterns using 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be looking at coins and making amounts by adding the coins together. We will have a pretend toy shop and the children will have to use the right coins to add up to the price of the toy.
We are having a focus on being able to write the tricky words that the children have learnt to sight read. If you want to practise this at home here is the mat – we are only working on Phase 2 and 3 but we will be doing some phase 4 this half term.
Have a good week!
