This week we went on a winter walk to the Spinney. Children went in small groups and worked with a partner to complete a winter checklist. Children loved this walk and really enjoyed observing in the Spinney.

In phonics this week some children have been revising the sounds learnt so far, whilst others have learnt the diagraphs, or, ow, ow, and ur. Children have practised all sounds learnt so far and used sounds in games, reading and writing.

This week children have been drawing/labelling a story map for our talk for writing story ‘The little black and white penguin’. Children really enjoyed drawing the characters from the story and were able to tell us what happens in the story and explain their story map to adults.

In maths this week we have been exploring number bonds, and using different mathematical methods to work out the answer. We will be exploring this further next week.

This week we have continued with our talk for writing story ‘The little black and white penguin’. We drew a class story map and added actions for parts of the story to really help us learn the story.

In phonics we learnt the sounds oa, oo-long, oo-short, ar, or. Children have learnt the sounds and revised the sounds we have learnt so far. We have practised the sounds by played games to help us blend and segment sounds in words.

In maths this week we have been learning our number bonds to 10. Children have also attempted to combine 2 groups and write number sentences to show what they did. Children were focussed during the activity and all enjoyed the activity.

It’s been very noisy down in F2 this week as we have been listening to different instruments. Adults then hid the instruments and played them .Children listened very carefully to different sounds e.g. instruments and pasta packets books, and then attempted to distinguish the differences between them and work out which instrument was playing.

Welcome back!

Children have settlled back in to school really well. Children have done some beautiful pictures and writing to share what they got up to in the holidays.

Children have enjoyed exploring the newly set up areas outside; these include; an outdoor painting/creative area, a new mud kitchen, a sensory tough spot, and a new water area. We have also added further enhancements to all the classrooms that the children have enjoyed exploring. 

We have started a new talk for writing story this  is called ' The little black and white penguin' Children have really enjoyed getting to know and learning the characters in the the story.

We have been recapping previous phonics sounds as well as learning 2 new diagraphs and 1 new triagraph and these are; ai, ee, and igh. Children have enjoyed writing and reading the sounds and practising in phonics games and activities.

During Foundation 2, the children will progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage which is accessed through both indoor and outdoor learning. We are extremely fortunate to have a brand new outdoor classroom, which the children can freely access throughout the day, both through adult led and child initiated activities. The children will learn the skills which will then be enhanced through play, exploration and investigation of the world around them.

Each area of learning and development must be implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and to communicate and socialise with others. Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. There is an ongoing judgement to be made by practitioners about the balance between activities led by children, and activities led or guided by adults. Practitioners must respond to each child’s emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive and effective interaction. As children grow older, and as their development allows, it is expected that the balance will gradually shift towards more activities led by adults, to help children prepare for more formal learning, ready for Year 1.
