The Gingerbread Man and his gang made an unwanted appearance.
This week we are focusing on numbers 4 and 5. The children used the five frame to estimate how many shells they could see without out having to count! Some children even matched up the corresponding numicon.
Topic afternoon, we thought about all the organs in our bodies and the importance of cleaning our teeth!
Funky finger time!
Our Remembrance Day Poppy wreath. After talking a little bit about Remembrance Day and why we celebrate it, Maize class joined the school in taking a 2 minutes silence. Next we made hand print poppies to pay tribute to the soldiers and animals who sacrificed their lives in the war.
In Forest School Maize class made a leaf basket. Ask them to tell you how they made it! After letting the glue set we investigated what we had created. The children then discussed with their chatting chums what we could use the leaf basket for. The most popular suggestion was a birds nest, so we went out onto to the Forest Power area to find the perfect spot for it.
This week we have been reading After The Storm. In the story a great storm blows down the big oak tree, which is home to many animals. Maize class had a go at building the animals a new home.
Happy Halloween Maize Class. See you all soon!
What a wonderful half term we have had in Maize class. All the children have worked so hard and have settled in amazingly well.
As I’m sure you have noticed at home, the children’s reading is progressing so quickly and they are becoming efficient at recognising the sounds we have learnt. To ensure that all their hard work pays off, it is so important that the children have opportunities to practise reading their guided reading books, at home.
We hope you are all enjoying half- term. We can’t wait to see you next week, to hear all about what you’ve been getting up to!
