Thursday Briefing - 04.10.2018

This week as part of our topic we have read ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs, In phonics we have continued phase 2 of Letters and Sounds and in maths we have looked at the numbers 1, 2 and 3. 

Topic  This week as part of our topic we have read ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs. The children have thought about their favourite toy and why they like them.

Phonics  In phonics this week we have continued phase 2 of Letters and Sounds. We have taught the sounds ‘p’ ‘i’ and ‘n’. The children made ‘peculiar pizzas’ which could only be topped by items beginning with the ‘p’ sound. In the creative area the children had the opportunity to make instruments. The children practised forming the letters correctly and we are making sure that the children use a tripod grip when holding their pencil.

Maths This week in maths we have looked at the numbers 1, 2 and 3. We ensure that the children count accurately with one to one correspondence. We have used the rhyme ‘two little dickie birds’ and also ‘three blind mice’.
