TERM 4 - Oh no! It's a Gruffalo!
Focus for the Term:
Each week we will be looking at a different Julia Donaldson book. We have a curriculum area focus for each week but please keep checking the weekly communication for more details on what we have learnt.
WEEK 1 - The Gruffalo (Understanding the World - outdoor environment)
WEEK 2 - Stick Man (Literacy - letter formation)
WEEK 3 - A Squash and a Squeeze (Maths focus - halving and doubling)
WEEK 4 - The Smartest Giant in Town (Expressive Arts and Design - different materials)
WEEK 5 - Room on the Broom (Mathematics - measurement)
Optional Home Learning:
WEEK 1/2 - Writing a sentence. You can download the file below, "If i saw a Gruffalo I would...". Please sound out rather than telling your child the letter names. All children have been taught to put a finger space in their writing.
WEEK 3/4 - You will need a glass jar for this one (I have lots if you need one)! See how many objects you can fit in a jam jar! No rules.
WEEK 5 - An Easter bonnet! Be creative... but please let your child do the making! These need to be in school for Thursday morning. We are going to make some in school, so don't worry if you dont have time to make one.
