Owl Babies


Posted by Miss Ward | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 24-11-2017

What a great second week in school. We have been very busy with learning, playing and a Parents Evening.

In Literacy and topic we have been focusing on the children’s choice of topic book, Owl Babies. We have read the story and used torches to follow the text. We have also listened to woodland sounds and described what we heard.

In Maths, we have been ordering 3 items by size and using the language big, medium and small. The Owl Babies from our story have been falling out over who is the biggest and who should get the biggest worms. They needed our help to order the Owls and the worms by size.

In Phonics, we have been learning to rhyme. We played silly soup, only choosing words that rhyme to put in the soup and played odd one out, choosing the object that didn’t rhyme.

During choosing time, children have chosen from activities such as leaf rubbing, ordering owls by size, practising cutting skills and threading.

Next week we will continue begin to look at syllables in words, continue with Owl Babies topic and creating a song and will look at taking away and adding objects to groups.
