Our whole school topic this term is called ‘SPACE.’

Each week we will use a different ‘Book of the Week’ to help us explore this topic in more detail and give the children opportunities to achieve across our ‘EYFS Curriculum.’

 

 

Our Book of the Week…

This week, we will be using the story of ‘Q Pootle 5’ (Nick Butterworth) as a starting point for our learning in the classroom.

 Poor Q Pootle 5 has crashed his spacecraft here on Earth? Can you and the other Earthlings design and create him a new spacecraft to return home?

It is Q Pootle 6’s birthday on Friday! Can you and your Earthling friends help make some moon biscuits for the party?

 

Our Sounds of the Week…

This week we will be learning about the sounds (sh) and (ch) and use them to read, make and write different words and sentences that use those sounds (e.g. shop, chips, etc…).

To support your child at home, you can click on the ‘ABC Joined’ and ‘Jolly Songs’ app above. Both are strategies we use to help the children learn how to read and write their sounds.

[NB, you have to pay a small fee for the ‘ABC Joined’ app but it is fantastic value and well worth it]

 

 

In Maths this week…

In maths we use our theme as a starting point for solving different problems that draw on different mathematical skills. Some of this week’s activities are listed below:

There are five (5) asteroids how many can you shot down in your spacecraft? (2) How many asteroids are left? (3) Can you write a number sentence to describe what’s happened? (5-2=3)

Mr Walters has caught a 2D shape – it has 3 straight sides and 3 points – do you know what 2D shape it is? Can you describe what 2D shape you’ve caught to another?
