This week years 1 and 2 have been busy thinking about how we make different numbers using part part whole models. You can see some of the different ways we looked at the composition of numbers in our photos. Reception have also been busy learning about shapes and using them to make pictures as well as thinking about what makes them as a person happy. We have had a range of exciting activities including playing with Starfish and going to the shops. It has been great to see so many children are enjoying reading our new Monster Phonics books. Remember to read them twice and write it in your reading record. If you can bring your reading record back with your book that would be fantastic.
We have been very busy this week. Thursday was our topic day which for a change we didn’t do as a whole class. Reception became vexillologists for the day. The looked at and recreated lots of different world flags before creating their own. Meanwhile years 1 and 2 had an RE focused day looking at different stories in Christianity and Hinduism and seeing what different people can learn from each other. Year 1 and 2 have also finished their Fox fact files this week and they look fantastic!
Another very busy week for everyone in Seahorses this week! Year 1 and 2 have planted seeds for their sunflowers and sweet peas as a part of our science work on living and growing. Reception have also been experiencing some African culture as part of their book ‘Anna Hibiscus’ song’. Seahorses have all now got their new Monster Phonics reading books, please read them twice at home and write in reading records when you have hear them read. You can then send in reading records to us on a Monday so we can see how busy you have been. Years 1 and 2 also have had their new spellings this week so please practise them when you can.
