Red Class have been exploring different shapes during recent maths lessons. We have been interested in finding out how we can use a series of shapes to create a new pattern. Our early work has involved looking at circles. We encouraged the pupils to create their own series of patterns using some brightly coloured shapes. Some of the pupils produced a large circle made up of a series of smaller circles; other designs looked like caterpillars.
All of the Red Class children have been enjoying reading our current class book, What the Ladybird Heard. This is a story that involves many lively animal noises. We have been playing games with the children to help them correctly recognise each different noise. We have also matched up the animals with the correct spelling of each sound during our literacy work.
Great progress has also been made with the handwriting from all Red Class children. This has been a key focus for this term. We have been helping each pupil to trace out some key letters. This work will continue with help given to Red Class in understanding the phonic sound in each letter.
