Attenborough Class update

Our week has centred around oats and porridge! I am sure you can guess the Traditional tale we have been reading this week. The children have read Goldilocks and the Three Bears and have loved tasting porridge but they couldn’t decide if their ‘bowl’ of porridge belonged to Baby Bear or Mummy Bear! In Maths we have been looking at how the number 4 and 5 are made. The children have been making and subitising 4 and 5 (knowing a group of objects makes a particular number) and recognising two numbers together makes another number. In Phonics we have completed the alphabet and learnt an amazing alphabet song! Our sounds this week have been ‘y’, ‘z,’ ‘zz’ and ‘qu’. We’ve been practising these letters in handwriting too! It was lovely to see so many of you at parents’ evening and a pleasure to tell you and share all the amazing things we get up to together in Attenborough class. In Topic we have been looking at maps and we went on a virtual walk around Mundesley using Google Maps – it was great to see the children recognising so many of the buildings in and around the village! We even created our own version of the map in school. We are looking at different types of buildings and houses. If you would like to send in a photo of your house we can use it in our small world – the children love to play and make up stories with familiar buildings. We love to see what adventures your child gets up to at home – clubs they attend , baking, reading, making dens, being creative, going on nature walks. Tapestry is a wonderful place to share these with us and the class – please upload your photos and a brief description so we can share these together during circle time.
