This week in our theme lessons we have been finding out how we can use foods to make new foods? We have been looking at foods that we can get from the farm.
The children worked collaboratively to order the pictures to make a jam sandwich. They then worked in groups to make their sandwiches – we had lots of fun!
This week in phonics we have been learning to recognise and sound the letters s, a, t and i. We have also been putting these sounds together to make words such as – a, is and sat. Please encourage children to recognise these sounds at home and leave a comment about your child’s learning! You could also practise reading the words on your child’s keyring. 10 house points will be awarded to each child who completes this task.
Look at how we have been practising our learning at school!
Look at these amazing tractors. We especially like the addition of the steering wheels and gear sticks!
steering wheels and gear sticks!
This week the children have amazed us with their wonderful independent craft work. They are loving the farm topic and it really shows in their work. It ranges from paper pigs, painted pigs, to drawn tractors and even a paper farmer. Well done class 3 and 4.
Foundation Stage 2 enjoyed the day at the farm. Click the link above to see a video of their day .
Mrs Swift and her son Mr Swift brought the big tractor to show us today. We asked lots of questions and remembered lots of facts. We couldn’t believe how big the wheels were! It was a great afternoon.
In phonics this week we have been playing rhyming bingo. We have been finding the rhyming words and matching them.
At home you could try thinking of rhyming words – can you think of any words that rhyme with…
If you can comment your child’s answers below we’ll reward them with 5 housepoints!
Some of the children in F2 today tried out our observational art activity in the shared area. They dre pictures of the apples using a fine line pen. There concentration and attention to detail was great to see!
We have set up the reading books ready to start our reading challenge. The books will be challenging for the children at the minute and children may say ‘I can’t read it’, the best response is ‘ You can’t read it on your own YET! but together we can read it…’ As we move through the half term we will blog each week the sounds we have been learning and some phonics challenges – this will help the children to decode the books the words in the books you receive at home.
If you could write a comment in the yellow reading diary for each book from the reading scheme you share at home we’ll be able to move your child along the reading challenge to receive rewards as they progress.
In class 3 and 4 books will be changed on Tuesday’s and Friday’s and we will mark and share home learning on a Thursday. Home learning activities will be sent home this week with lots of fun activities for you to complete at home.
If you have any questions please see the staff or email EYFS@greentopschool.co.uk and we will respond.
