LEARNING THEME: Christmas
THE BIG QUESTION: WHY DO WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS?
This week we will be continuing to prepare for our winter production. We will be looking at the story of Christmas and learning more Christmas songs, ready to preform for all the parents on December 6th.
COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE
We will continue to look at the story of Christmas, looking at the characters within the story. We will be looking at the titles ‘Ceansus taker’, ‘wiseman’, ‘shepards’ and ‘inn keeper’ and finding out exactly what these titles mean. We will be thinking about the roles these people use to play and what they might do now.
‘Ceansus taker’, ‘wiseman’, ‘shepards’ and ‘inn keeper’
Listens and responds to ideas expressed by others in conversation and discussion.
Uses talk to organise, sequence and clarify ideas, feelings and events.
Uses language to imagine and recreate roles and experiences in play situations.
We will continue playing some simple phonics games with the children to develop their listening skills.
We will consolidate sounds the children already know. Check inside phonics packs to see if there are any new letters to learn. Here is a link to some great apps that will support the phonics work we are doing in school for phase two and beyond.
In Maths the children will be working on estimations. Looking at quantities of items the children will be asked to guess how many they think there are and then count to see if they are right. The children will also be encouraged to use the language of less and more when talking about the difference between their estimation and the answer.
How many, estimate, more, less
Estimates how many objects they can see and checks by counting them.
Uses the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare two sets of objects.
THEME: We will start to talk about weathers in Autumn.
SONG:今天天气好吗？（Jintian tianqi haoma?）
