|Writing our Gorilla stories|
We started a new topic of 'Journeys' this week in Literacy. We read the story 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne and talked about fantasy journeys we would like to do with the gorilla. We also discussed journeys we do everyday e.g. to school, to the shops.

We were also introduced to Floppy (the dog from the Oxford Reading Tree Books) and found out some information about him. We already know that he is not very good at counting as we have a puppet 'Floppy' in the classroom who always makes mistakes and us children, being very clever, have to help him!

In Numeracy this week, we have been starting to count up to 100 using a big number square. Miss Joanne thinks we are very good at counting :) We have been learning about all kinds of patterns (shapes, colours, objects, movements etc) and have been creating our own 2 or 3 shape/colour patterns. Our number this week was '8' so we practiced finding the number 8, counting to 8 and made our own number 8 jigsaws.
In Phonics, we had a revision week, recapping the six sounds we have learned so far (s, a, t, i, p, n) and practiced how to write them correctly. PARENTS - please help us practice these at home.
For Topic work this week, we made pictures of our family and practiced the English vocabulary when naming different members (mummy, daddy, sister, brother, baby, grandma, grandpa). We also learned some new family members (auntie, uncle and cousin). We also talked about where we live in Gran Canaria and placed ourselves on a map.
