What we have been learning this week...
This week we have been learning how to write sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We used the tricky word 'I' in our sentence writing and have been using the sounds we know to write words. In maths we have been carefully counting out shells and making and writing the number of the day. We have made starfish to decorate our classrooms and used the scissors carefully to cut them out. We were excited to sing our Harvest Festival song this week in assembly and we did a super job!

We are enjoying learning
The children have continued with our theme The Rainbow Fish. This week we have learnt about the different parts of a fish and how fish can live under water. We enjoyed labelling a fish in literacy, listening for and identifying the initial sounds in words. We used our super writing skills too. In maths we have learnt number rhymes to help us with our numeral formation and continue to make and write our number of the day. Outside we have been building our upper body strength on the climbing equipment, writing, counting and building caves for the wise octopus. We have used our fine motor skills to make rainbow coloured paperchains to decorate our classrooms.  We have been eager to show our independent work and are becoming confident learners.
