This week the children have started to learn phonics focussing on s, a and t. The children have also been practising how to count objects carefully. Encouraging the children to touch the objects one at a time as they count.
The book focus has been The rainbow Fish. We have had lots of lovely art activities based inside and outside the classroom. The children have produced some wonderful and colourful fish. We have also spent time discussing why it is so important to share.
Our topic is all about the seaside and this week we have been talking about different creatures that live in the water. The children wanted to know: Are mermaids real? This question we are still trying to find the answer. However, most of the class say they are.
The children created pictures of the seaside using the whiteboard and also practised writing their names with their fingers.
Welcome everybody in Alder Class
The children have had a busy first week settling into school life. They have been getting to know all the teachers that will be working with them, rules and routines of daily school life and been enjoying their school dinners.
While in class the children have been enjoying the different activities that are set out for them. They have also been exploring the outside classroom, playing on the trim trail and visited the chickens.
