A bit of everything in RF!
Friday 16th March | No comments yet
This week we have been very busy with lots of different things.
Some children planned a party and made cakes. They wrote invitations and thought of all the things they would like at a party. At the end of the week we all shared the cake!
One child is soon going on an aeroplane for the first time so we have been finding out what it is like on a plane and the children set up their own plane.
Other children have visited the farm and enjoyed feeding the chickens and collecting eggs. On the way back to class it was so wet they all had fun splashing in puddles.
3D shapes have been the focus of our Maths this week and all the children joined in making one big model. They each had a 3D shape and we talked about the name and properties of the shape. Then the children carefully built a model. They had lots of problem solving to do because if they did not place their box in the right position or make sure it was balanced then disaster struck and it collapsed. When it was completed we had lots of suggestions of what it could be. Some children said it looked like a castle and others thought it resembled a mosque.
Next week we will continue to learn about 3D shapes and use familiar objects and common shapes to create and recreate patterns.
This week in Phonics we have been revising ch, sh, th and ng in words. The children have written words and sentences with these sounds in them. Next week we will be revising ai, ee and igh. The children will be writing words and sentences both independently and with support.
Don’t forget it’s Parents Evening and the Pyjama Story Night next week.
Have a good weekend,
From all the staff in RF
