Percy the Park Keeper and Nursery Rhyme Week!
This week we have been learning the phonemes n,m,i,d. The children have also been learning to blend phonemes in order to read words through lots fun games and activities. The children have enjoyed role playing in our 'Anne Dale' village and in Number we have been using the vocabulary of more, same and fewer when counting and comparing quantities.
We have been exploring Autumn colours in our outdoor classroom. We got the rollers out to help strengthen our upper arms and used them to explore how colours can be changed.
This week in Year R we have been learning the phonemes s,a,t,p. There have been lots of activities for us to do to help us learn the sounds of these letters.
Today the Bumblebees went on a welly walk. We looked at how the school grounds are changing. We noticed the leaves falling off the trees and all of the changing colours. The children went on a scavenger hunt and found lots of exciting Autumn objects in the woods. When we got back into school we made some Autumn Art with our collection. We found lots of different colours and textures. Please ask your child what they collected today!
