'Three' has been our mathematical concept for this week and will remain so for next week. The children have been finding a range of representations of '3' and we have also been reading rhymes and singing songs about '3.' Placing the representations of 0, 1, 2 and 3 onto the magic counting stick in the correct order was a challenge to start with but once the resources were in the continuous provision within the classroom, the children were soon able to do I independently. Thinking of, naming and describing shapes, with three sides have also been part of our maths learning this week. 

In the outside learning environment, the children have been making words using the letter mats, making dens with sheets and pegs, making triangles with sticks, printing with triangles and making their bodies stronger by using bikes, hoops, scooters and utensils in the Mud Kitchen. 

We have been reinforcing the letter sounds we have learnt and using them to blend together to make words. We have been creating rhyming strings together and looking at how letters go together to make words; some of which we can sound out and some that we just have to know called 'tricky words.' The children should all have a set of 'tricky words' in their book bag. There is also a song on YouTube called the 'Tricky Word Song' that the children love to listen to and sing long with. 

Thank you to the people who attended the Maths Mastery parent workshop on Tuesday. We hope you found it useful.

Home Learning

At the beginning of each new term the children will receive a booklet of home learning tasks and activities for them to complete and work on each week. The most important part of home learning is to talk with your child, read to, and with your child, every day and record this in their School Planners and allow them to think for themselves and develop their independence skills. After Christmas, as the children become developmentally ready, they will each have a small number of simple words to learn to spell each week.

How you can help!

Help to develop questioning skills and encouraging the children to record their own independent learning would really help the children.
