Week 4 Spring Term 1

admin on: Acorns

In literacy this week we have read Rumble in the Jungle and have been writing sentences about the different animals in the jungle.

In Maths we have been doing a lot of practical maths this week, we have been counting an irregular arrangement of up to 10 objects.

In Phonics we have been learning these sounds, zz, qu, sh and ch. At the end of each day to refresh the sound that we have learnt, we watch Mr Thorne teaching Geraldine the Giraffe the same sounds. These can be found on Youtube if you want to watch them at home.

During our topic session this week we have been looking at the Jungle, learning about the animals we will find there and looking at the weather. We have also watched videos on different types of weather.

Week 4 Autumn Term 2

admin on: Acorns

This week in Acorns!

Our new sounds this week have been ‘l’, ‘ll’ and ‘ss’, we have tried really hard with them even if we found forming them a little bit tricky.

In Literacy this week we have been looking at Traditional Tales. We read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We told the story in our own words by sequencing the pictures in our literacy books and we also used our phonics to label a picture of a Brown Bear.

In Numeracy we have been finding the total number of items in two groups by counting all of them. We used the counting bears to count how many we had in each group carefully to find out how many there were altogether. We also counted the spots on both sides of the dominoes to find out how many there were in total.

During our topic sessions we have been learning about bears and making our own bears using paper plates and tissue paper.

We have also been busy practicing the songs for the nativity.

Week 3 Autumn Term 2

admin on: Acorns

This week in Acorns!

Our new sounds this week have been ‘h’, ‘b’, ‘f’ and ‘ff’, we have tried really hard with them even if we found forming them a little bit tricky.

In Literacy this week we have been looking at Traditional Tales. We read the story of The Little Red Hen and learnt the actions that go with the story in order to help us retell it in our own words. We also created a story map, and labelled some of the characters and wrote what they said. Come and have a look on the Literacy wall at what we did.

In Numeracy we have been using the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare two sets of objects. We used the dominoes and had to talk about what we could see and say which side of the dominoes had more, fewer or if they were equal.

During our topic sessions we have been looking closely at similarities, differences, patterns and change. We talked about how the trees change in the different seasons and created our own Seasonal picture using paint and our fingers. We also made bread which linked to the story of The Little Red Hen, the classroom smelt amazing!
