Blackbirds 11th March

This week it has really started to feel that spring is on the way. We were introduced to our new book Tiny Seed by Eric Carle and we have also been looking at different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. On Monday we planted sunflowers, beans and peas and made some signs to ensure nobody would touch them! We used pastels and worked in a group of 5 to each draw a page from the story, which depicted what had happened to the seeds along their journey. Finally we wrote about what had happened.

In maths this week we have been focusing on patterns. We have made repeating patterns with our bodies, actions, stickers, Lego, nature and cubes.

During phonics we continue to work on phase 3 from Little Wandle with the focus on reading longer words and breaking them up into chunks. We have been practising the digraphs or, ar, oo.
