Later in the week we will design our own Gruffalo and use adjectives to describe them.

Welcome to SSC1

Friday, 14th September, 11:27 AM

Welcome to SSC1 and the new school year. All the children have settled in really well and already learning class routines and expectations, which is brilliant.

In English the children are exploring two books The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and the traditional tale of Red Riding Hood.  This week they have described a character from Red Riding Hood and made jam sandwiches for Grandma, alongside role play and games such s Red Riding Hood Lotto.  EYFS children are learning to hold a pencil correctly and to mark make independently, whilst the KS1 children are working on their handwriting and spelling skills.

In Maths we have been counting and learning about 2D shapes, which included a shape hunt, where shapes had to be found and put in the correct shape pot. They also found shapes frozen in ice., which the children loved.  

In Science we have been learning to name the external parts of our bodies and the children worked really well matching pictures and naming arms, legs and even knees and elbows.

To help your child at home any practise counting would be very beneficial, as is sharing books with them each day.
