Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day

Term 3

This week we have continued on our space adventure.  We have learnt the story of 'Whatever Next' with actions and have been using a story map to draw and write the main parts of the story.  We have been learning about the solar system and have been making our own solar system display.  In maths we have been focusing on numbers within 5 and have been trying to work out the amount of objects missing by uisng our number knowledge. 

This week we began learning our Talk for Writing story, 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy.  We thought about what we would take to the moon and used our sounds to draw and label things in a backpack.  We then imagined getting in our rocket and zoomed to the moon.  We explored our surroundings, enjoyed a picnic before heading back to earth.  We have a dark tent set up in our room at the moment so we have been exploring torches and other light sources.

It's been a short but busy first week back in Hedgehog class this week.  Our role play area has become Tesco so we have been busy making price labels and writing shopping lists.  We have been learning about all of the different sections in a Supermarket and thinking about which shops we could visit in Sellindge to get the same items.  We have been working hard with making sure we are writing our numbers correctly and using our sounds when writing labels to go on our work.  We finished the week by enjoying some toast which we spread and cut independently.
