On the school path this morning we noticed lots of conkers had fallen from the big horse chestnut tree over the weekend. We’ve been out collecting them and talking about how they’re all different. We feel very lucky if we find one still half in its shell!
We are practising to write our new sound – I love how some children are choosing to write it independently. This is a great attitude to learning.
We have been learning about surrealism. We enjoyed looking at and discussing various surrealist pictures and we have recreated the painting ‘The son of man’ by Rene Magritte. Who can you spot?
We have been talking about things that are near and far from school and our homes. Our maps have provided fantastic opportunities for us to talk about different places and distance.
These children were so engaged in building tall towers, they built a city! They worked together for half an hour, sharing ideas and cooperating well as a team.
We have been learning how to write a list. We have also been discussing the farmer from Farmer Duck story book. We’ve noticed how unhealthy he is – laying in bed all day, eating chocolates and shouting “how goes the work?” to the poor duck. Therefore, we’ve been talking about him getting a healthy diet and today some children have chosen healthy food for his shopping list. The child below has made up her own list using bullet points. She told me that the writing in blue is the unhealthy food. Can you tell what she has written using her phonics knowledge?
We have been learning to measure weight, height and size. Look at us showing our understanding independently in our provision.
We have been working so hard in our daily Read Write Inc lessons to learn sounds. Look at us sound spotting and practising writing letters independently.
