This week we are having the fairy tale 'The Princess and the Pea'. This follows on with the language used in traditional tales and also has a similar structure.
The children's story scribing is progressing well and the more confident they are becoming with phonics, the more control they are taking of the pencil and the adults are writing less. This is brilliant and the children are really enjoying writing and coming up with their own stories.
In maths we are concentrating on subtraction as the opposite to addition which we looked at last week. We are also looking at ordering numbers, finding a missing number in a numberline and number songs involving subtraction e.g. Ten Green Bottles.
We are hoping that the canopies will be finished this week but we will tell the children when we can start coming in the normal entrance again. Sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused.
