Welcome to Class 11
This half term our topic is Growth and our class will be reading and taking part in lots of activities linked to growing plants, animal life cycles and our own growth.We know that our Class love to read with a grown up and it would be great if children want to share with us any books that they particularly like to read at home.
In Mathematics we will be working hard to recall number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 and will be continuing our learning about multiplication and division. We are learning Times Table facts and will be taking part in practical grouping and sharing activities.
Younger children in the Class are working on counting to 20, recognising and writing numbers to 15 and matching numbers with the correct amount of objects.
In Science we are investigating plants and we are currently developing our role play area into a garden centre. The children will be able to role-play familiar stories and real life experiences along with using a variety of gardening equipment to plant seeds and investigate and observe changes over time.
We are hoping to visit a local garden centre as part of our Living Language Program this half term. This greatly assists our children's vocabulary and language development. Taking part in gardening or fruit and vegetable shopping activities with you at home are extremely beneficial for your child and we would love to hear about any trips that you take.
We are continuing to focus on our class motto, ’Kind hands, kind feet and kind words’ and we greatly appreciate your support in praising and letting us know about any kindness, no matter how small, that you see from your child at home.
We always enjoy cooking and tasting what we have made in class and will be taking part in weekly cookery sessions. It is extremely important for you to inform us of any allergies that your child may have.
