This week learning

This week we are focusing on the ‘Three little pigs' traditional tale. It is important at this time in Reception the children begin to develop understanding of story structure and how traditional story telling works to support their writing in length.

We will use our phonics knowledge to record information: simple words from the story: red, hood, big, sad, teeth, captions or sentences with these words. 


Phonics: recall sounds learnt so far: all Phase 2 and Phase 3 learnt so far. Use them in words: sound it out blend it together; make sentences with the words. 
Recall the High Frequency and Tricky words learnt so far.


For more information on phonics please access the self isolation documents on our class page.


Maths: focus on number recognition 0-10, 0-20.

Now we have begun to gain a deeper understanding of how adding and taking away number using language more and less changes a number we will begin the foundations of addition. It is important for children to have a breadth of knowledge of how to add using different methods rather than adding by memory for example: 2+2=4. 



From last week reading the colour monster discussing how we can represent our feelings and emotions through colours we are now moving onto learning about the zones of regulation. The zones of regulation is a scheme we follow all the way through the school, it supports children to learn how to regulate their emotions and therefore, make better choices. 



To follow our topic of the week 'The Three Little Pigs' we thought it would be a fun science activity for children to test different objects and how much they move when they are blown. See the Tapestry observation for more description on the activity.
