Well done Chestnut for completing another fabulous week! Mrs Fell and I are so impressed with everyone this week! 

 

In topic we read the story ‘Katie and the Starry Night’ by James Mayhew. A wonderful story that introduces children to one of the most famous paintings in the world. The children were really engaged throughout the exciting story! Afterwards we looked at some images of the original Starry Night painting and discussed the painting. Next we had a go at creating our own versions of the Starry Night with paint and cotton buds. The children created some lovely paintings! 

 

In phonics we have been focusing on Phase 1 Aspect 1 'Environmental sounds'. We listened to a variety of sounds and identified the correlating image. This is something you could practice at home, put on your 'listening ears' and tell someone what sounds you hear. You might hear a train, phone ringing, baby crying etc.

 

In maths we have continued to practice counting and also explored different ways to represent a number. We enjoyed the numberblocks episode 'Stampolines' and had a go at creating our own stampoline pictures!

 

Please remember to check Tapestry for photos of the week and see all the fun we have been having! 

 

Have a good weekend and get ready to begin the Christmas fun next week!
