Farthing Wood 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.


In English the children have read Goldilocks and the Three Bears and have loved tasting porridge but they couldn’t decide if their porridge was too lumpy, too sweet or just right. It was lovely to hear them chatting to their peers using the language learnt from the story.


In Phonics we have been learning the digraphs (two letters, one sound) ch, sh, th(v), th and ng. It can be really tricky to remember these and spot them in words but the children have fantastic looking eyes and spotted them straight away! We’ve been practising our letters in handwriting too and been trying really hard with our letter formation.
In Maths we have been looking at how the number 4 and 5 are made (composition). 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!


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 Farthing Wood 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.


Please ensure you send wellies and waterproofs with your child to keep in their locker at school.


Please remember to send your child’s Handwriting Homework Book back on a Monday – thank you.


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.
