Term 3 - Week 4

This week Apples and Pears have been learning about traditional tales. We have looked at Little Red Riding Hood. We focused on describing the wolf and family members. The children came up with some great vocabulary such as sharp teeth, yellow eyes and long claws. Some children extended their own learning during continuous provision and wrote a descriptive sentence.

The children were very keen on exploring how Little Red Riding Hood got to Grandma’s house. Therefore we looked at maps and creating our own, thinking about directional language. Apples and Pears enjoyed using the Bee-bots to show different directions such as forwards, backwards, left and right. We linked this to our gross motor skills and created a track using cones and arrows to find our way to Grandmas cottage. We used the bikes and scooters to help us on our way!

In Maths, we have been focusing on one more and one less. The children have enjoyed using manipulatives to show this. They extended their learning during continuous provision using the number squares to build a number line and find one more and one less. They have also explored the large whiteboard in our Maths area and wrote some amazing number sentences to show their understanding of one more and one less.

Thank you for all your continued support,

Have a lovely weekend,

The EYFS Team.
