Barn-a-bs

Welcome to Barn-a-bs!
 
This term we will be learning about animals, starting with farm animals. We are especially concerned with the dangers of being a pig or a hen when there are wolves and foxes around. The three little pigs had to be clever, strong and persevere to beat the wolf. Rosie the Hen was just plain lucky to escape the fox. These classic stories really come alive when we tell them in our Talk for Writing style. We learn the vocabulary we need before we hear the story, and we use pictures and actions to help us to learn the story. We heard some wolves howling at our window- but they didn’t blow the school down!

 An exciting trip to Exmoor Zoo will help us to find out more about animals.

 In Mathematics we are learning that we can count objects, that number symbols tell us how many objects are in a group, and that words can tell us about numbers, shapes, time and much more.

 We have organised our outside space to enable children to climb, explore, build and be physically active. We are still enjoying our weekly music and PE lessons.

 Our interactive screen helps us with dance routines, singing, stories, as well as finding out about animals and the environment. The children love using the drawing programme we have, and we have access to educational games.

 Our simple rules and routines ensure that the children feel secure, safe and that they know what is expected of them and others.

 As always, please come and talk to us about anything, working well together is a top priority.

Remember to check your child's online journey by logging onto Tapestry.
