This week we will be focusing on human growth. We will be learning the main stages of life along with how we grow and what we need – a healthy lifestyle. We will be exploring parts of the body and talking about the variety of food groups that are needed in order for our body to work well.
The focus in maths is doubling and halving and we will also be introducing the concept of division through sharing.
Do not forget to pop into class if you would like to see some of the growing projects that are on the go. The children have planted cress seed heads and they are just beginning to grow.
The life cycle of a chicken / duck.
An exciting week this week in class 1.
We will be setting up the incubator at the start of the week and then on Wednesday we will be putting 12 little duck eggs in. The children will be very excited and if they ask you to pop in then please feel free to have a peek.
A project like this has numerous possible endings. I will be talking all the possibilities through with the children so that they are aware - it will be fun but it does come with a lot of responsibility. If the magic takes place then in 28 days we should have a duckling or 2 in class. Watch this space!!
Along with this we will have a visit from the Little Red Hen who will help us to understand her life cycle.
In maths we will be continuing with number formation, counting / writing numbers above 20 and addition / subtraction activities.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
We will be starting the week off with our visit to the theatre to see Goldilocks on Tuesday. The rest of the week will be following up the trip and enjoying many of the elements involved within the fairy tale.
We will be writing about the visit, retelling the story, rereading the story and role playing the story.
We will also use the story as a basis for our maths lessons, we will be looking at size, weight and capacity activities.
Forest School will start back on Friday, so please remember old cloths if it is hot.
