Happy New Year!
We made it through the first two terms, well done!
This term we are going to be learning 5 traditional tales, a different one each week. We will be starting off with The Gingerbread Man'. The teachers will be presenting the story in full character, hopefully encouraging the children to role play the story! We will be using story language in our writing and story telling such as once upon a time, then, next, finally, in the end, they all lived happily ever after...
We look forward to reading, showing and telling you all our stories!
This week we have been learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. The children have been very creative in thinking of alternative ways that Jack could make it up to castle.
We have also performed the Gingerbread Man to the children, which was great fun for all!
We have been learning about the difference between 2D and 3D shapes. The children have amazed us with how quickly they have picked up 3D shape names and properties. We have been watching clips from Danny MacAskill's Imaginate where he rides a bike through a playroom full of giant toys where the children have been naming all of the 3D shapes they can see (a bit hard to explain, best to look it up!).
