A new half term brings a new topic; Traditional Tales! This week we have been reading The Three Little Pigs. On Monday, our teachers performed the story for us! This West End worthy show supported us with our own retelling of the story. We have been busy being builders and architects, designing and building houses made of straw, sticks and bricks. The big bad wolf came along (in the form of Ms Hillis & Ms O’Sullivan’s hairdryer) but could not blow our houses down! I wonder if you could re-enact the story to your family this weekend, using the key vocabulary and phrases we have learnt this week such as: once upon a time, then, next, finally, the end.
In maths we have been beginning to add. We have been using the language ‘add’ and ‘equals’ and talking about how when we add, the numbers or the amount of objects we have get bigger. Using cubes, we have been working out all the different ways we can make 6 and 7.
In phonics we have been reading and writing 2 syllable words. Syllables are how many units of sound are in a word. We explain this by clapping the beats in a word. We can split 2 syllable words into 2 sections to help us to read and write them:
Toothbrush bedroom airport singer batman farmyard lipstick shampoo raindrop carpark
