Summer 2

Summer Term 2

Week 1

We have been reading the traditional tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, in literacy we have been retelling the story and matching key words to the correct character. In maths we have been practicing our counting past 10! In the role play area we have been acting out the story.

Week 2

We have been learning about ‘Goldilocks and the three bears’. In maths we have been comparing objects in relation to size, the children have been sorting bears into groups of medium, small and big. In literacy the children have been retelling the story and in PE we moved around in different ways, eg. Big stomps for daddy bear, tiptoes for baby bear.

Week 3

We have been learning about ‘The Three Little Pigs’. In maths we have been using different shapes to build a house. In literacy the children have been comparing different versions of the story and giving our opinions on which one we think is true and why. In EAD we have been building houses out of a range of materials, just like the three little pigs. We found that the bricks were the strongest!

Week 4

We have been learning about ‘Goldilocks and the three dinosaurs’. We discussed the differences between the dinosaurs and the bears. We learnt new vocabulary such as Dinosaurs, bones, fossils and extinct. In maths we measured dinosaur bones and compared sizes. We learnt about what dinosaurs like to eat and conducted an investigation to find out if they ate plants or bones.

Week 5

We have been reading the story of the ‘Enormous Turnip’, we talked about the importance of team work, especially in relation to our sports day coming up next week. In maths we expanded our vocabulary and learnt new words that mean big for example: huge, large, enormous, gigantic. In PSED we talked about our school values of resilience and growth mindset, having a go and not giving up.
