We have enjoyed the story "Funny Bones" this week, especially looking at the animal skeletons and guessing what animals they are! We have enjoyed painting pictures of skeletons on black card and been really careful to try and add some detail. We have painted some self portraits using mirrors to help us identify the correct hair and eye colour. We have also looked at some facial features including freckles, eye brows and eye lashes. We have used the dough to create some models of ourselves and have also made some shape pictures using flat shapes to create faces.
In maths this week we have been practising counting in different ways. We have been counting claps, jumps and taps on a tambourine. We have been practising stopping counting after the last tap rather than carry on! We have been identifying numbers on a number square and some of us have been counting in twos to 20 and tens to 100. In phonics we have revised some previous sounds that have been taught including set 2 sounds for Read Write Inc. Some of us have been practising "Fred Talk" (segmenting and blending) to read green word cards. Most of us have begun to learn and consolidate set 1 sounds and have begun with m, a and s this week. We have been learning the handwriting phrase and this has helped us begin to write the sounds.
