How is it Friday again already!? What another exciting and busy week we have had!

This week, we have been introduced to the author Eric Carle, we discovered that an author is someone that writes books. Eric Carle has written many books, including the story, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This story has led our learning....

To support our communication, language and literacy skills we have read the story each day and have explored new vocabulary such as, cocoon, salami and swiss cheese. To help us to recall the story, we have worked hard to sequence the foods that he ate each day. We have really enjoyed feeding the caterpillar the different foods. To support our writing and early mark making skills, we have drawn a picture of the character in the story and all the different foods he ate. We have also been tracing circles, focusing on anti clockwise motion.

In our mathematics sessions, we have looked at pattern, we have continued on a repeating pattern and some of us have been able to create our own repeating pattern — wow!

To ignite our understanding of the world, we have welcomed five caterpillars, we are already amazed at how much they have grown! We have also planted in our outdoor area to attract lots of insects into our garden. Thank you to Mrs Charlesworth and gardening club for your donations of plants.

During phonics, we were introduced to the phoneme 'l' and worked hard to listen for this sound in words. We have also enjoyed activities to support our segmenting and blending skills -- wow! Our rhyme of the week was, 'Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary' and 'There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf'.

We have also taken part in yoga, dough disco and continued to focus on circular motions during our squiggle sessions,

We have also had fun with the parachute and enjoyed lots of time in our outdoor area.

Enjoy the bank holiday Little Wrens and I look forward to seeing you back on Tuesday
Miss Gregory.

This week we wanted to share our learning in science; we have been learning about forces. We looked at a range of items and tried to get these to move or change shape. We discovered that we could squeeze, blow, twist, spin and even throw objects to do this. We then realised that all of these verbs could be classified into a push or a pull. We then moved on to learn how items move on different...
