An exciting start to the term…

Thank you for all the effort that was put into the children’s Communication books over the holidays. It was lovely to see what the children have been busy doing over the holidays and they have been desperate to show us their work.
The children have been very excited about our new arrivals. It has sparked lots of conversations about animals that lay eggs and how to look after eggs. The children have been very eager to stroke, hold and feed the ducklings. We will be looking at the life cycle of a duck and what we need to do to look after our ducklings.
This week the children are learning the phonemes /ea/ and /oy/. We will discuss with the children that they have already learnt the phonemes /ee/ and /oi/ but that /ea/ and /oy/ present alternative phonemes with the same sound.
This week we are looking at fractions. We have been discussing what a whole is, a half and a quarter. The children have all made themselves a piece of toast and have practised cutting their piece of toast into half and then quarters. We then looked at pictures of the children’s cutting and discussed how toast can be cut in half and quarters in different ways. We are also starting to look at sharing this week.
