week beginning 6/5/24

This week we focussed on word endings such as -ing, -ed/t, -ed/id/ed and -est as well recapping on phase 3. In Maths we were subitising using a rekenrek which allowed the children to continue to develop their subitising skills as they explore the structure of small numbers while building a foundation for further work in year 1. In other areas we embarked on a minibeast hunt allowing the children to observe and describe living things in their habitats, we read The Hungry Caterpillar, looked at days of the week and even made our own butterfly life cycle! We thought about different features of minibeasts like how many legs they have and left out plates of various food with predictions as to which food would be the favourite. We also read The Snail by Henry Matisse and compared the artwork by Henri Matisse and Robert E Fuller.
