We love our new topic!
The children have made a fantastic start to this half term. They have shown great enthusiasm for our new topic 'Can we build it?'.
Our focus for the next 2 weeks is one of our favourite stories 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. The children have enjoyed reading the story, watching it on the interactive whiteboard and role-playing using puppets of characters from the book. We have also acted out the story on using the bridge on our climbing frame outside. Mr Fisher has also enjoyed playing the part of the 'Troll'.
We have focused on language related to size this week. We have noticed in 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' there is a big, medium and small billy goat. We have been categorising a range of objects within our classroom by size and height. The children are becoming very confident using language such as 'tall', 'short', 'big', 'medium size', 'small', 'little'.
Take a look at some of the activities we have completed linked to size ordering. We have enjoyed ordering small world animals and cutting out fruit pictures and ordering these by size.
