In English we are looking at 'Handa's Surprise'
We have been reading the story this week and learning the actions to go along with it.
This week we tried the different fruit Handa had in her basket. We did a class vote and decided we like pineapple the best.
We have also done some lovely observational drawings of Handa and spoken all about the things we like about the story and the things we do not like as much. The children decided they were not keen on all the animals taking the fruit she had to surprise Akeyo with.
Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at pronouns and innovating the story to make it out own.
We have now made some great progress with the stage 2 sounds in phonics.
We are going to be looking at some more alternative diagraphs over the next few weeks and some more tricky words.
It would be great to still practice the sounds in stage 1 to make sure we remember them.

PhonicsPlay is a great website for children to access to practice their phonic skills from home.
We aim to change your child's reading book every Monday. This ensures each child has the opportunity to read their book within school to an adult twice a week and with their family at home to develop their segmenting, blending and overall fluency skills.
The children have been making some great progress with their reading. Children may start to get new books which they will get quizzed on within school once they are ready. This shows that the children are understanding what is happening in the book as they read it.
Each child will be sent home with tricky and green word bookmarks. It would be brilliant if you could practice the tricky words and green words to support your child's fluency when reading.
Make sure to keep the bookmarks as they are a great tool to use again and again.
This term we have looked at loads of different books by many different authors.
- We talked about the different parts of the book like; the front and back cover, the spine, the title, the blurb ect.
- We predicted what might happen in the story just from looking at the front cover and from reading a few pages.
- We used our inference skills to discuss how the characters are feeling in the stories.
- We used out sequencing skills to put the stories in order.
- We also discussed our likes, dislikes, patterns and puzzles about the story. We came up with some great questions to ask the authors about their books too.
We are now looking at numbers 0-20. I am so impressed with how the children have got on already.
- They are able to recognise and write most of the numbers from 0-20 correctly.
- They are able to count from 0-20
- They are able to add 2 numbers together to make a number between 0-20
Each child has been working SO hard and I am SO impressed.
We are lucky enough to be able to access the Numbots Game - this allows your child to work on their maths skills at home in a fun, exciting way.
Each week I will be checking who has completed the next level and handing out certificates.
You can find your numbots login in your child's reading diary - we have started from the beginning to make it exciting with the certificates.
This term we have been looking at animals and humans.
We started by looking at the different types of animals and how we can identify which type of animal they are.
We then moved on to look at humans. We discussed the different parts of the body and what we need to do to keep our bodies healthy.
This week we have looked at sense.
We looked at the 5 senses humans have and done different activities to use them.
- We listened to different sounds to use our hearing.
- We tried different foods to use our taste.
- We used our noses to identify different things with our smell.
- We use our skin to touch and describe different things and try and work out what they were.
- We used our sight to look at the details on different objects.
This term we are looking at History.
We have started the term by looking at weddings.
We have been discussing weddings from the past and weddings from the present to se how they have changed over time.
We are going to be looking at the different people that get involved in weddings and role play them.
Thank you to everyone who has sent in pictures from their wedding day. The children loved looking at these and talking about them.
Towards the end of this half term we will be talking about Florence Nightingale.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
