When I was younger…
We will be thinking about how we have changed since we were babies. What can we do now that we couldn’t do before? Do we like the same things?
We will think about how we might change as we get older. What jobs might we do?
We will be learning about the numbers 1 and 2. ”One and another one makes two” – we will be playing games and finding things around the environemtn that match up to make two: socks, a game of pairs, shoes, eyes, ears…
In phonics we will be practicing our oral blending a segmenting skills. At home, try giving ‘robot’ instructions (e.g. ”Can you put on your c-oa-t?” ”Can you pick up the t-oy-s”) see if your child can blend the sounds to work out the word.
Apple and Cherry class will have PE on a Wednesday
Children will need a white PE top and shorts in a PE bag. Please name all items as you can imagine what it might be like with thirty children getting changed at the same time!
It is useful to practice getting in and out of clothes at home. Socks can be especially tricky!
