w/b 7th September 2020
Wow! What a fantastic first week! The children have adapted to the new routines really well and are very eager to learn!
We have spent the first week learning how to use the classroom resources and areas, setting out classroom expectations and getting to know each other (and washing our hands a lot!)
Our topic for this term is 'Dots, Spots and Circles'. After mind mapping things that have dots, the children decided that they would like to look at animals and art with dots or spots. This lead to the class looking at art from around the world that included animals! They were particularly drawn to the Tinga Tinga art from Tanzania and this will be the first focus area for our topic work.
In maths, we practised counting sets of objects accurately and matching them to numerals. We also used the chalk on the yard to practise writing numbers correctly.
Our literacy focus has been writing our names carefully, making sure that we get all the letters the correct way round and put uppercase/lowercase letters in the correct places. We will be continuing to practise this regularly this half term.
Well done Dosbarth Moel Siabod on a fantastic first week!
