Growing!

Sunday 27 March 2022

The children have been busy planting seeds and bulbs in our outside area. We have planted beans, sunflowers and a selection of different herbs.

Phonics

This week the children will be reading longer words such as carrot, ladder, bigger and rabbit. They will be practising blending words in their head using the digraphs and trigraphs; ai ee igh oa oo oo ar or ur ow oi ear air er .

Maths

This week, the children will use practical contexts to sort objects according to different criteria. They will be encouraged to notice different attributes in groups of objects – such as colour, size or function – and to describe what they notice.  They will apply their sorting skills to numbers and investigate ways to sort Numberblocks. By using their knowledge of doubles, they will begin to practically explore even and odd numbers.

Have a great Easter break!
