Week beginning 15/10/2018
In Literacy this week we will be doing lots of learning based on the story 'The Little Red Hen'. We are going to write all about the characters and use adjectives to describe their personalities. We will be using words like 'happy, friendly, noisy'. You can practise using adjectives at home by describing the things around you e.g. that is a tall tree, or mummy is happy.
In Maths this week we will be learning about sequencing. We will focus on our daily routine, months of the year and simple tasks like using a pen to write our name. We have many different routines during the day, and we all do things a slightly different way. Do you wake up in the morning and have your breakfast straight away? or do you brush your teeth first? ask your children about their daily routines in school.
