Weekly Update - 7th February 2019

Miss Oates and Mrs Pawson - 07 Feb 2019

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! We began our chinese new year celebrations earlier this week looking at some of the traditions connected to the celebration and we will be having our very own fun-filled celebrations tomorrow when we welcome Tiger Class from West Tanfield into our school. 

The children have led our learning in lots of different diretcions this week from plumbing to number investigations, tree-house building to measuring, gardening to informative writing and family role-play to teamwork. We love to see the children take control of their learning and challenge themselves with everything we do. 'Challenge' is a word the children are beginning to understand and enjoy more and more. You may have noticed that we are once again encouraging the children to build their independence skills and their organisation skills - a big focus this week has been bags, coats and personal belongings. We are learning not to only look after our own things but to look after other people's things as well. This helps us develop our personal, emotional and social skills which is a prime area of EYFS learning. Please let your child put all their belongings away on a morning to help them with this development - thank you. 

The children have had lots of 'wonders' about what they can do with numbers so we have spent the week investigating these numbers and are beginning to spot some patterns that can help us work out answers to other wonders. We have continued discussing 2-digit numbers in terms of 'tens' and 'ones' so that the children are building a solid foundation for their 'number sense' We have also looked more at measures again this week. We are beginning to compare lengths and weights and use our observations to solve problems. We spent time this morning trying to predict and investigate which tree trucks were the largest and then measuring them. Lots of tree hugging was involved. Developing our mathematical vocabulary in everyday situations is really important - situations such as making bird feeders and cakes have really helped us to develop our vocabulary.

We are progressing well through phase 3 of our phonics and have learnt more digraphs this week. We have been looking at the two different sounds that 'oo' can make and have noticed that sometimes it is long and sometimes it is short. We then moved onto look at 'er' - we had already learnt this sound but with a the 'ur' spelling and so are beginning to understand that there can be more than one way to write a sound! And our final sound this week was 'oi'. 

Thank you to everyone who were able to attend our Candlemass service in church on Monday and our Sign2Sing assembly on Tuesday. We're sure you'll agree that the children spoke and sang very confidently - well done children! Please come and buy some of our cakes at the bake sale on Friday... can you guess which ones we made?
