Good afternoon! It has been another busy week in the Antelopes class. In English this week we did lots of role play activities. We got into character and retold the story of Where the wild things are- the boat on the playground came in handy! We also turned into wild things and had a wild rumpus in the copse- this was a lot of fun, and I think you may have heard the howling in Chelmsford! We then drew our wild thing creations, and labelled them. Frankie- Rae had bat wings and Matthew had scary teeth!
In maths this week we have continued with place value, specifically learning one less than, counting, reading and writing numbers in words, one to one correspondence, comparing objects, and introducing the <,> and = signs.
In phonics, we are still recapping phase 3, but really embedding those digraphs so we can recognise them easily in reading and writing. This week we looked at qu, ch and sh.
During our science lesson this week we recapped the four different seasons, and have a brilliant season song online to help us learn these, and explain what we notice about each season. We then had four trees and had to decorate them to suit each season.
Our French lessons amaze me each week! I really enjoy languages, and I am so pleased that the children are enjoying how to speak French! We recapped hello and goodbye, and can count to 5 now!
We all went into the computer suite this week and practised logging on. Once we had logged on we built our own wild self which was great to practise mouse control. If you type it into Google you should be able to play at home!
Finally this afternoon, we finished with RE and labelled some lovely pictures of who is special to us. Nicole drew her nanny because she gives her her own pack of sweets, Maxwell drew his daddy because he just loves him, and Daniel drew his dog because he gives him high fives!
Next week we have school individual photos on Thursday, and our Macmillan coffee morning on Friday. DB primary tasks are now online and will stay there this time!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend Crocodiles!
