Areas of learning for fortnight commencing 26th April 2021


We are learning about the life cycle of a caterpillar and we are fortunate to have our very own caterpillars growing at Pre-School. We have been looking closely at these as they change and sharing information books about Caterpillars and Butterflies. We have also been sharing the brilliant story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle.


We are exploring colour as we make a butterfly painting.  In mathematics we have been learning about numbers, playing number bingo. We need to count the dots of the ladybird and match it to the correct numeral.


We are focussing on phonic skills this week learning to hear and say the initial sound in words. We have also been learning to blend sounds together orally to read simple cvc words such as fox, bat and pan.


This week we are also learning about growing, planting our own seed to look after. We will be bringing these home to share with you. We are also using our large sand writer to make marks and draw. The Owl children have been using the sand writer to write their name correctly.


A reminder to send your child’s library book back into Pre-School on their timetabled day. Feel free to complete a star about your child’s reading skills as you share the book together. We love hearing about all the wonderful things you are doing at home too.
