What have we been learning about in Year R this week?
In Maths the children have been focusing on one more and one less. They have been singing songs to support their understanding of this. They have also been exploring the composition of number finding different ways we can make each number up to 5.
To introduce Augustus and his Smile the children discussed how the tiger looked and created their own tigers, which has created a lovely display in our classroom. The children have also been discussing how the tiger found his smile in the story and have been thinking about what makes them smile.
The children have also been practising to recognise and write their own name using the correct letter formation. Please could you practise this at home with your child using a capital letter for the beginning letter and lower case for the remaining letters in their name.
We would like to thank Georgia Northcote’s family for their kind donation of a storage basket. It has been well used to store our dressing up clothes. The children have been enjoying having the dressing up clothes out and role playing different characters.
To end the week the children discussed the importance of ‘Remembrance Day’ and why we buy poppies each year. The children have enjoyed buying poppy merchandise over the last few days and they also enjoyed making their own poppy craft.
In Maths the children will be continuing their work on 1 more and 1 less and will also be practising to sequence numbers.
We will be continuing our work on Augustus and his Smile. We will be getting to know the story and acting out the different parts. We will also be looking at the different places that Augustus visits in the story and writing about our favourite one.
We will also be introducing this year’s nativity to the children and beginning to learn some of the songs.
Have a lovely weekend.
