- About Us
This week we have been transported back in time once again to the Stone Age. It has been wonderful to experience a new and fun Topic with the children, and it has been amazing to explore this Topic together.
We read the story, 'Stone Age Boy' and discussed our favourite parts. The children were transfixed at the idea that there was no electric, no cars and no real houses. We have learned why the Stone Age was called the Stone Age... because they used stone to make most things! The children were able to showcase their own skills as they built their very own homes using 'Stone and animal skin' (imaginary of course!)
Today, we got very messy as we were able to enjoy one of our very favourite parts of the story - the cave painting. We learned that the cavemen painted in caves to pass on messages. Some cavemen believed that if they wished for something then they could draw it on a cave wall and magic would take place making their wishes come true! Have a look at some of our fantastic cave painting...
Throughout the week we are focusing on the children's phonics and maths skills. We are currently recapping everything that we have learned during our remote teaching. Please continue to practise these skills at home.
In maths we are covering: height, length, weight, capacity, 2D shapes and 3D shapes.
In phonics we are covering the Letters and Sounds Phase 2 sounds as well as some Phase 3 sounds such as: j, v, w, x, y, z, qu, ch, sh, th and ng.
The children have been engaging very well in their lessons and we are very proud of how hard they have worked.
Of course, one of the perks of being at school is the time we are spending together and with our friends. The children are spending a lot of time outside at the moment and why not, the weather has been glorious! They have even been showing off some excellent bat and ball skills...
