‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ proved very popular over the last two weeks in capturing the children’s imaginations. They have been demonstrating their storytelling skills and developing their understanding of what might happen at the beginning, the middle and the end of a story. They enjoyed thinking of their own ideas for a personal version of Jack and the Beanstalk and explored the characters traits of ‘goodies’ and ‘baddies.’
In Maths the children have been using ‘part part whole’ models and ‘tens frame’ models alongside their number learning in Maths to arrange numbers in different ways using counting objects and begin to look at addition facts for 6, 7 and 8.
In Music the children have had lots of fun exploring high and low sounds to represent the voices of different characters, and practising playing a steady beat along to songs they’ve learned. We hope the children have been sharing these songs with you!
In Art the children painted a picture of their favourite Traditional Tale character. Can your child spot theirs to show you?
To find out more about the children’s learning next half term look out for the topic newsletter which will be on the website next week.
Enjoy the rest of your Half Term. We’d love to see what the children have been doing. Remember you can use Tapestry to keep us posted and the children will love showing their class photos of their activities when we return.
