There are lots of interesting books for us to look at in our library area.
We have been having fun playing in the classroom with our friends.
We are getting good at knowing what we need when working and creating at the craft and play dough area and then tidying all the materials away neatly when it is tidy up time.
We enjoy sharing, exploring and investigating in the sand and water.
We are continuing to learn rhymes to help us with our numbers.
Down and over and down some more, that’s how we make the number 4.
Out of the farm and around the building, back up and shut the gate, down and around and a flag up high that’s how we make the number 5.
Around to a loop, number 6 rolls a hoop.
Across the sky and down from heaven, that’s how we make the number 7.
Make a ‘S’ and do not wait, when you get home you have an 8.
We are having fun exploring numbers. On our number lines we are talking about numbers that come before and after. We are also thinking about numbers that are one more than and one less than.
Meeting the Family
We are enjoying finding out about Kipper, Biff, Chip and their dog Floppy and are learning to recognise their names. Did you know that Kipper’s real name is Christopher and that Biff is really Barbara and Chip is David? This is what Kipper said when he was little because he found it difficult to say the names properly.
We read a story about Floppy chasing rabbits in the mud and how he had to have a bath to get clean. Afterwards Floppy was clean but everyone else was muddy!
We continue to enjoy finding out about our new sounds, their actions and songs. We are very pleased with ourselves because we are beginning to use these sounds to help us read small words.
