Encourage your child to write the sounds in various ways e.g. use chalk outside, can they make the letter shapes with paint? Can they write them in foam?

In Maths this week we have been focusing on doubling. E.g if I have 1 spoon and it is doubled I now have 2. Can your child double the number of people and cutlery at the dinner table? Can they double how many apples are in the fruit bowl? If they spot a plane flying past can they double it?

Forest School

Teacher (teacherone) on: ROBINS

Look at us developing through forest schools. We had a great time building dens, making swings, searching for insects and working together. We cannot wait for next week.

Measuring

We have been exploring measurement. Children decided to compare animals by height, measure their own towers using our height chart and even place pictures and objects in height/size order. We can say which is, taller, shorter, fat, thin, small, large and compare. Some of us can even measure using a ruler!

The Children had a great time at Barleylands. We made gingerbread snowmen! Counting 2 eyes and 3 buttons. We saw some birds of prey and found out what food they ate. We looked at some reptiles, fed some animals, completed an obstacle course, had a bumpy tractor ride and had a visit from someone very special. What a fun packed day. The robins would love to go again.
