This week our focus tasks will help improve appreciation of books, the ability to listen carefully and check everyone's understanding of 'one more/ one less.
The children have chosen books that look interesting and described their book. They have developed their own interesting character and drawn them. The children have been learning to read and write their first list of high frequency words.
The children all practised adding one more by listening to how many beats the teacher played on their drum -then playing one more on their drum or tambourine. One less was very tricky and needs practising again.
Mrs Harvey has started to teach simple coding in ICT.
All this and lots of challenges in the areas, for instance: create a fairy tale with the figures in the dry sand, write your letters with sticks in the wet sand, pick up gems with tweezers in the Tuff Spot etc. Every time the children completed a challenge their mini-me got a sticker!
In the investigation area we've had some very interesting objects to use in creative play.
