EYFS 30th April 2021

We have had another great week in Reception! 

Our topic this half term is 'Living and Growing' and we have been focusing on the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk.'

In phonics group 1 and 2 have been learning and applying the Set 1 sounds: k, u, b and we have been practising blending for reading and segmenting for writing.  

Group 3 have been learning and applying the Set 2 sounds: oo (look at a book)and ay (may I play). We have also been focusing on independent reading and writing using Set 1 and 2 sounds. Please ask me if you would like to know which group your child is currently in. 


Attached here are the sound mats we look at to help us when we are writing independently.  

Set 1

Set 2.

In maths we have been making teen numbers. We have been learning that numbers 11 - 20 are made up of 10 plus the additional number (e.g. 10 and 1 is 11, 10 and 2 is 12. We have been using tens frames, cubes and numicon to see this visually really clearly. 

HOMEWORK CHALLENGE - Inspired by the 'magic beans' we made our own magic potions during outdoor learning! Can you make a magic potion at home and write down the recipe or what spell it is going to cast?
