Week Beginning 23rd November
We have started to rehearse for our nativity play in school. We look forward to sharing the finished play with you later in the term.
This week we based some of our work around the book The Gruffalo's Child. We looked at similarities and differences between this book and The Gruffalo.
Class information book
One of the things we noticed was that The Gruffalo's Child takes place at night time. We thought about different things that happen during night time. We decided to make an information book all about night time. Lots of the children were keen to make their own information page for this book. The book is now proudly displayed in our book corner.
We continued to listen to different books by Julia Donaldson at the end of each day. Some of us worked in small groups to complete the rhyming puzzle. Once we had finished the puzzle we enjoyed spotting all the rhyming pairs.
This week we thought about 1 more and 1 less than a given number. We used various rhymes to help with this concept. For one more than we used the rhyme An elephant went out to play. For one less than we were able to use several rhymes; 5 little monkeys, 5 currant buns, 5 green bottles and 5 little ducks.
I hope you all have a lovely long weekend.
