Communication, Language and Literacy
This week we will be introducing the children to a new book, The Gruffalo. It is written by one of our class author's Julia Donaldson and is illustrated by Axel Scheffler. It tells the story of a mouse's walk through the woods and the clever tricks he uses to keep himself out of danger from the other animals he meets.
This week our focus is on halving and sharing objects equally with our friends. We will also be practising the skill of counting in 2s/5s/10s.
Please make sure your child's PE kit is in school everyday.
The children will now be having their main PE session on Monday with our resident PE expert, Joe Peake.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
We will be focussing upon our diamond rule of 'sharing' and reading books around this theme.
Understanding the World
As a class we will be thinking about the animals that might use the woods as their habitat.
Expressive Arts and Design
We will be encouraging the children to create their own representations of the Gruffalo using a variety of materials. Some children may choose to make some Gruffalo claws!!
How you can help at home...
* Ask your child to retell the story of the Gruffalo. What animals does he meet in the woods?
* Take part in some practical sharing activities at home.
