We're all really excited to start learning about Space! We are so lucky to have a fantastic Space Station in the role play area, thanks to Mrs Mills. What a star! Our other areas of continuous provision around the class also refect our space theme, such as moon rocks and rocket ship on the small world, galaxy playdough and making space pictures on the creation station. We will continue to develop our learning choice areas to follow the children's interests in this topic.
This week we have learned about the planets in our solar system; their names and their features.
In English we have written recounts of our half term and written our very own fairy tale.
In maths we are continuing learning to subtract numbers. We have concentrated on taking away 1 digit numbers from 2 digit numbers - crossing the ten boundary. The children have just about got to grips with this, firstly using apparatus and then drawing tens and ones in their books to help them calculate it independently.
We have begun to learn some songs for Christmas Nativity (oh yes!) and are very excited! Scripts and parts to learn will be coming home shortly..
