Back to school!

Hello Penguin and Seal followers 

We hope you have all had a relaxing and fun half term. The children have been excited about being back to school, ready to take their learning further in term 2. 

The children are enjoying phonics and have learnt 12 letter sounds (phonemes) so far!  The children have been really interested in learning to write their letters and have been playing teachers with each other.

In maths the children are enjoying the numicon challenges and love number blocks. They have been using the multi-link cubes in different ways to make the number blocks and to create patterns. We are learning about teen numbers and counting beyond 10.

The children have been enjoying developing their writing muscles participating in dough gym, hammering golf tees into pumpkins and painting the fence with water.

Finally this week we have been talking about staying safe on bonfire night and making firework pictures and collages using a variety of different media. 

See you next week!
