This month, we are continuing our learning based around our amazing animals theme. The children are really beginning to build their confidence in writing and have enjoyed our drawing club sessions where they get to draw a picture related to our story and write about it. This half term the children have had the chance to draw lots of animals which they have really liked.
Our phonics learning is moving on brilliantly. The children are learning more and more digraphs which they are feeding into their writing. This half term we have covered ai, ee, igh and oa. We are also learning more and more red words and are hoping that the children are practising these at home too.
In maths, the children have been learning about measures and are developing their mathematical vocabulary learning words such as capacity, mass, heavier, lighter and balanced. We are also working hard on our numbers 6, 7, 8 and have started to learn about doubling numbers and about odd and even numbers.
Later this month, the children will be learning about Lunar New Year. We will talk about the traditions associated with this celebration and have lots of fantastic activities planned.
