Nativity 2022!

We have all engaged in a wide variety of interventions to develop our attention and listening skills.

We have been working really hard on our fine and gross motor skills to make sure we have strong hands and muscles to help with our writing and drawing.

We have been developing our number knowledge this half term by discovering one more and one less within ten which has included lots of using number lines, ordering numbers and subitising numbers.

We have been looking at circles, triangles, squares and rectangles this term. We have used our knowledge to sort the shapes, build rockets and make mosaic animals.

We have now learnt all of our single sounds and some special friends too. Over the past two weeks, we have been using this knowledge to hear and identify the initial sound is words. Some of us have tried to hear each sound in CVC words to form a whole word.

Class R are very grateful to their buddies for helping them with their first exploration of the new trim trail!
