In week one, we have started the new term with the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and we have each planted a bean.
We are very excited to watch them grow.
Week two has been Book week and we have taken part in lots of activities relating to books, looking at traditional tales and writing about Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Little Pigs. We also wrote about our favourite books and designed a book cover for an author who came to read to us.
We loved sharing books with our Year 6 friends and dressed up as a book character for World Book Day. We have also been painting flower pictures, watching our beans start to germinate and been learning how to subtract using ten frames. We haven't been learning any new sounds but have been re-capping Phase 3.
In week four we have been looking at how much our beans have grown and have now taken them home to plant them. We have been writing stories and learning to half. We have used different equipment to help us with our Fine Motor Skills and have enjoyed learning outside. We made a penny line for comic relief and ours was nearly 8 metres long! It was our Blue groups turn for show and tell and we talked clearly about the things we brought in to school. In Phonics we have been re-capping Phase 3 sounds we find tricky.
In week six some of us had a trip to Pizza Express to make a pizza. We had lots of fun making them and we hope they enjoyed eating them at home.
