A wet and windy week…

This week we might not have enjoyed the best weather, but that definitely did not dampen the children’s excitement and engagement in their learning this week.

The children enjoyed listening to different fictional stories about spiders and this led to us focusing on facts about spiders during our science lessons this week. Not only did they compare different minibeasts to classify them as insects or arachnids, but they also gathered information about the ways different types of spiders hunt for their food.  The children were intrigued to learn about the Goliath bird eating spider from the Amazon Rainforest! Why not ask your child if they are able to tell you any of the facts they have learned this week?

In maths we have continued to work on number formation and the children have made good progress in being able to correctly form some numbers from 1-10.

Our art project is progressing very well and the children have enjoyed using a variety of materials to make their own version of Vincent van Gogh’s Starry night.

How you can help at home:

Choose a letter sound from the alphabet and have your child make a list of all the words they can think of that starts with that sound.  Who in the house can make the longest list?
