This week children have been revising phase 2 and phase 3 sounds as well as learning new tricky words and revising the ones already learnt.
In talk for writing this week children have drawn a picture of a new character for the story whatever next children then had a go at making a story map using their new character.

We have really focused on hygiene this week and have been encouraging children to wash their hands loads. Before they start exploring, before snack, after exploring, after lunch, and at the end of the day before we leave. We will continue focussing on this next week.

For Literacy this week we Wrote a captions for a picture. Children had a selection of pictures from the story whatever next. They chose one and wrote whatever they wanted about it.

In maths we have been focussing on teen numbers and have used 10s frames and numicon to show these numbers and really understand them.

This week we have been to the moon! We started our talk for writing story last week. The story Whatever Next! We have read the story, made a class story map, acted out the story, and told the story with actions. On world book day, we made delicious sandwiches for our picnic and travelled to the moon! As a year group, we listened to a story and ate our sandwiches whilst we watched space videos and listened to some space themed music.

In literacy this week, children wrote a list and wrote down 10 things that they would take to the moon with them. This was very exciting and most children filled up all 10 lines to write their lists on.

Over the last few weeks, we have completed a maths assessment and a phonics assessment for each child. These have been shared with you at parents evening.

For world book, day children were very happy to share their favourite stories and bedtime bears. They made bookmarks to take home and made a book cover of their favourite story. As always, we have shared a variety of stories, told stories and looked at non-fiction books. We have enjoyed rhyming books, nursery rhymes and helicopter stories.  

In phonics this week all groups focussed on revising phase two and phase three sounds and tricky words we have learnt so far. We have revised, practised and applied our phonics knowledge through rhyme, games, and writing.

In phonics children have been revising all the phase 3 sounds learnt so far. Children have been playing games that help practise blending and segmenting with the sound learnt. Some children have also attempted to write words with the sound in them.

In maths this week, we learnt about 3d shape. Children explored 3d shape in range of ways. We did a 3d shape competition where children worked with their talk partners to play 3d shape eye spy.

It was internet safety week this week, and we looked at the story Smartie the Penguin. If you would like to read this story again with your child. The link is on the website.

This week was Environment week. We did a range of activities around recycling and reusing. We discussed importance of recycling and recycled in class times with our own bins. Paper, plastic, materials, and metal. In groups we made collages using recyclable or reusable objects.

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.
