This week we are reading the story 'The Enormous Turnip.' We have the characters from the story in our small world, so the children can retell the story. We will be printing using different vegetables and making our very own vegetable soup. We will be writing a list of ingredients we need and we will be cutting the vegetables and spreading the butter ourselves. We will also be reading about how farms have changed and what they were like in the past.
In drawing club, we will be introducing new vocabulary such as haul, heave, tug, colossal and scrumptious. We will be drawing the turnip, the garden, designing a machine to pull the turnip out and designing a new soup. We will use code words and sentences to make funny things happen.
In phonics, this week we will be recapping the sounds ng, ai, ee, igh. We are focusing on all the tricky words we have learnt so far.
In maths, we will be making pairs using socks and collecting natural objects and putting them in pairs e.g. 2 leaves, 2 stones etc. We will be combining two groups together to find out how many we have altogether and begin to add more.
