We have had a lovely week in Ducks and Ducklings this week. The children have brought in their favourite books to share with their friends. We have all enjoyed listening to new stories and learning new things. 
 
We haven’t had a new number to learn about this week. Instead we have been counting objects and matching it to the correct numeral. The grown ups have been very impressed with us! 
 
In aspirations we have been learning about how books are made.

This week we have continued our learning on our topic Magical Me, learning all about our body and body parts.  We sang the song Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes to remind us of the names.

Our number of the week has been number 5.  We have been singing lots of maths songs e.g. five little speckled frogs and five little men in a flying saucer and we made five fat sausages out of playdough.

We continued to strengthen our fingers ready for writing by tracing patterns and we printed using the Numicon shapes. 

In phonics, we went on an outside walk and concentrated on using our listening ears to hear different sounds.

Our aspirations this week was learning about ferry boats.

This week we have been learning all about number 4.
We have looked at shapes with 4 sides, hole punched 4 holes in pieces of paper which had 4 sides (building up the strength and dexterity in our fingers at the same time) and made the number 4 with cubes. We watched the Numberblocks programme, investigated ways of making 4 and coloured in our own Numberblock picture.
We have been drawing pictures of our family for our Magical Me topic which the grown ups were very pleased with.
We were very interested in watching the workmen digging up the school drive and this was the focus for our aspirations learning this week.

What a busy week we have had this week!

On Monday we went to our local church for our harvest festival. Reverend Sandra told us all about harvest and why we should share food out. 

On Wednesday we were taught how to play Boccia. We had a great time in the hall learning the rules of the game and having a go at reaching the target ball.

We ended the week with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, raising money for Macmillan. It was lovely to see so many grown ups watching us whilst we sang our songs. Our class song went down really well!

In between all of these exciting activities, we continued learning all about ourselves and our number this week was number 3.

We’ve had a super week this week in Ducks and Ducklings, enjoying the sunshine and doing lots of learning.
As part of our topic Magical Me, we have talked about how we are all different and how we  like different things. We then made different faces using a variety of materials. Some were very funny!
We have been learning all about the number 2 this week. We learned that one and another one makes two. We played with Noah’s Ark in the water and made the animals go in two by two!

On Friday we all came to school in our jeans to support ‘Jeans for Genes Day’. May we take this opportunity to thank you for your support and generous donations for such a worthy cause.

It’s been a fabulous first full week in Ducks and Ducklings. The children have settled in well and are learning to follow the routines.  They really are a credit to you.
This year we are introducing Number of the Week in our EYFS unit. Our focus this week has been number 1. We have been learning to recognise the number, find that number of items and see how it can be represented in different ways.
We have been mark making in different ways this week, including drawing on paper attached to the underneath of the table!
We have been sharing information about ourselves with the class this week as part of our Magical Me topic and we have made self portraits. The classroom is looking lovely with the addition of the children’s pictures.

Welcome back!
It has been wonderful to see just how well the Ducks have settled back in after the holidays. Haven’t they all grown! We have enjoyed welcoming our new friends who have been for visits this week and have been showing them the ropes.
Our topic this term is Magical Me.  We will be learning all about ourselves and what makes us special.
