PSED – To express our feelings and consider the feelings if others.
The children identified different emotions and said how they are feeling today. We discussed how our actions could affect how others may feel and how we should be mindful of this. We also thought about how we can help others when they may be feeling sad, scared or angry.
- What do you do when you are angry?
- How would you make a sad child feel better?
- What do you do when you are sad?
UW – To describe our immediate environment.
This week we are learning all about Shop Keepers! We went on a walk in our local environment to see what shops we have in our local area and to help Mrs Langley and Mrs Hameed do their shopping by buying a few things from the shops! We were able to talk about what we could see on our walk and describe our local area.
CL – To listen, retell a story and describe events.
We shared the story ’The Shopping Basket’ by John Burnigham. We listened careful and were able to retell to story using our own words. We then role played shops and used key story language in our play.
Maths – To begin to understand bonds to 10.
The children used number shapes to find their matching partner to make 5 or 10 according to ability. They began to record different number bonds to 10.
SEAL – To understand how to make healthy food choices.
We discussed how some foods are healthy and how some are not so healthy. The children were able to identify some healthy food choices. They then created their own healthy food plates, labelling and explaining their choices.
EAD – To develop story lines in pretend play.
The children used props to role play being a shop keeper. They took it in turns to lead the play and develop their own story lines in their play.
Literacy – To spell words by identifying the sounds and then writing the sound with letters.
The children created their own shopping lists. They used their phonetic knowledge to write the words of the items that they had on their shopping list.
SMSC – To know what a good friend is and how Jesus made good friends.
The children talked about what makes a good friend. They listened to the story ’Jesus calls his first disciples’ from the Bible and then talked about why Jesus was special and how he made good friends.
Maths – To explore the composition of 5.
The children role played people on a bus. With adult support the children were placed ’on the bus’. They then had to count how many children were on the bus and how many spaces were left to develop number bonds to initially 5 and increasing to 10 according to need.
Maths – To explore the composition of 10.
The children counted out 10 double sided counters each. They then dropped them onto a plate and counted how many were red and how many were yellow. Through discussion they were able to explore the composition of 10 by saying different ways to make 10 that they have found practically. They also recorded this.
