LEARNING THEMES

The Reception Cubs are still travelling and their interests are taking them in different ways. The Leopards will be using stories to imagine journeys for the model vehicles that they have made to go on. The Raccoons’ airport is developing into a space station and they are becoming interested in travelling by rocket. The Bears are continuing to stay with road transport and will explore police vehicles. They will be looking at how we communicate and practise giving directions and instructions.  The Cheetahs are really engaged with making and following picture instructions to make their models.  The Pandas have been inspired by their pirate adventures from last week and have begun to make models of different vehicles, being especially interested in all the different parts; engine, wheel or sails.

LITERACY- READING, SPEAKING, LISTENING and UNDERSTANDING

The Cubs are exploring the differences between fiction and non fiction texts. We will be listening to stories about journeys, for example ‘The Magic Train’ by  and ‘The Rattletrap Car’ by Phyliss Root and ‘The Journey’, by Neil Griffiths. We will also be looking at a range of information books and instructions; both pictoral and with simple sentences.

KEY VOCABULARY

Instruction, information, real, label, imaginary story

PHONICS

The children will continue to progress with their ‘Letters and Sounds’,  working with class teachers throughout the week to consolidate their phonic skills and learn new sounds as they are ready to move on. Please check your children’s phonics pack for new sounds, tricky words and common sight words to practise at home in line with their learning at school. Can the children find the words and letter sounds they have been learning in their reading books and story books at home?

The Cubs will continue to learn the names and some properties of 2D (flat) and 3D (solid) shapes this week through our model making. We will also be looking at directional and positional language when we talk about our journeys and instructions.
