Welcome to the Cubs News!
This term we have been learning all about Space, Chinese New Year and Pancake Day.
Photos from this Term
IWe began our space topic by watching Tim Peake on our IWB. We watched clips of his journey into space. This inspired us to draw our own rockets and space pictures.
In Literacy, we wrote a list of things we might like to take with us in a rocket to the space station. On our way we thought we might be hungry so we wrpte instructions on how to make a jam sandwich. We then got to make our own sandwich and eat it!!
Our class photo shows how much we enjoyed it YUM YUM!!
We looked at non-fiction books to find out all about the planets and the moon.
In our fiction books we read the Whatever Next Story and then had a go a re-telling the story, in groups, using props and story stones to help us. We thought the story Aliens Love Underpants was very funny and we painted our own underpants and aliens for our classroom display.
We built our own rocket to take us to the moon, going past Mars, Venus and Saturn.
In Maths we have been comparing heavy and light rocks, by using the balancing scales. If the rocks were heavy, the bucket "was at the bottom and if the rock was light the bucket stayed up in the air".
Chinese New Year & Pancake Day
We have been celebrating Chinese New Year. and Pancake Day.
The WoW Sheet is a way for you to record those moments when your child says or does something that makes you think "wow"!
We are always interested in any special moments that the children experience in their home environment.
Please click on the links above to print off our WoW Moment tickets and let us know what your child has been up to out of school
We would love to share the childrens news in our circle time and we will place them in their Learning Journey
Please can we ask that you label ALL clothing, bags and bottles as lots are getting muddled!
Book Bags will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned on the following Wednesday.
Here are some links to some games we like to play at school:
This is a website full of phonics games for all phases.
Lots of practical and fun games to play.
Fun learning through play helps children achieve Foundation stage goals. Teach 3-5 year olds, initial sounds, colours, compare and order, counting, matching and mouse skills at home.
Phonics games will help your child to practise sounding out words, which will help them to read. Initially, children will learn basic letter sounds, such as "c-a-t" for "cat". Later they will move on to sounds such as "th", "sh" and "ch", then "oo", "oa" and so on. Once they recognise a few basic letter sounds, they will be able to work out what a written word says for themselves, a skill which they will be very proud to show off!
Counting. matching and ordering maths games
