What have we been learning about in Year R this week?
Thank you very much for your junk modelling contributions this week to make our minibeast creatures. The children had a wonderful time making their creatures and have had great fun choosing and decorating their creatures.
The children have also been learning some interesting facts about minibeasts and talking about their favourite minibeast. The children have also been learning the song ‘The ants go marching two by two’ and adding in some actions too.
In Maths the children have been learning about 2D shapes. They have learnt the names and properties of the different shapes. The children have also been comparing a square and a rectangle and have learnt that a square has 4 equal sides (all the sides are the same length) and a rectangle has 2 short sides and 2 long sides.
We cannot believe we have completed the first half term in Year R already. It has gone so quickly and we do hope that you all have a rest and an enjoyable time over the half term holiday.
After half term:
The children will be discussing and writing about what they have done in their half term holidays. It would be lovely if you could send in a photo or post some photos on Tapestry of something that your child does during the half term, which will support their discussion in school.
In Maths the children will be focusing on numbers 4 and 5 looking at ways to find, subitise and represent the numbers 4 and 5.
The children will also be learning about firework night. They will discuss how to be safe and making some firework crafts too.
Have a lovely half term.
The Year R team
