Peppard Class February 28th

This term our topic is ‘Growth and Change’.  We are going to be looking at lifecycles of chickens and caterpillars and growing our own vegetables and plants.

This week has been very exciting as 6 chicken eggs arrived in Peppard Class. We have been talking about how to take care of them and have written our own care plan. The eggs will take approximately 21 days to hatch so we have created a sticker chart to count down the days. Next week we will hopefully be able to see inside the eggs to see how big the chicks are.

In topic we have been looking at the story of the Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. We created puppets and have been practicing retelling the story. We made our own mini ‘Hungry Caterpillar’ story books. In our creative time we started to make a caterpillar for our display using different materials and textures. Next week we have our own caterpillars arriving

In Mathematics this week we have been looking at numbers 1-20. We have been practicing putting them in order and finding missing numbers. We also practiced placing non-sequential numbers in order.

In phonics we consolidated the sounds we have learnt already and introduced the ‘or’ sound. We practiced writing sentences starting with a capital letter, using finger spaces and finishing with a full stop.
