We listened to the fairy story of ‘The Frog Prince’. We talked about the stages of the story – beginning, middle and end. We were delighted with the children’s independent versions of this story, as they had recalled so much detail. We have been learning about vowels and thinking about how many words the short vowel sounds is in.

We had a ‘ribbit’ great time learning how to draw frogs following a step by step guide; it was fabulous to see how unique each frog looked!  Our lovely frogs are up on display in the classroom.

We have also been exploring 2D shapes and tangrams. Understanding how to reposition tangram shapes can help develop spatial skills. We enjoyed making puzzles and cutting 2D shapes, this encouraged the mental rotation of objects and helps children learn to rotate and translate shapes. It’s a perfect way to get children exploring new and familiar shapes, letting them explore shapes in a new context.

A big thank you to Anton for the amazing story book he wrote and Simran’s coin picture, we really enjoyed hearing their amazing show and tells on Wednesday.

Next week, our topic is ‘Bears’ and we would love to meet the children’s favourite bear from home, or to share a favourite bear story in next week’s show and tell.
