This week we have continued with the farm and Old MacDonald theme and have looked at the book Flip Flap Farm. We have been very busy reading the book, discussing how we can make different silly farm animals and creating our own. We then used our own silly farm animals to sing Old MacDonald. See the video on Twitter. In Squiggle While You Wiggle and Make Your Mark, we made loops in the air and on paper to music. Then used those movements to create a tail for the pigs. 

In Maths, we have been comparing groups of objects. Talking about which group has more, less, whether the groups are bigger or smaller or the same. We have used groups of farm animals and toys and played a pom pom game in teams and talked about which group got more. 

During Phonics this week, we have been exploring alliteration. We have created Alliteration Aliens, played Bertha's Bus (exploring items that start with the same sound) and Silly Soup. We also tried to hear the first sound in our name. 

Learning Hero

Each week we have a BLP Learning Hero, our Learning Hero is a child who has shown one or more of our 4 R learning powers (reciprocity, resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness). 

This weeks Learning Heroes are Anthony (AM) for making links in Phonics and Hezzy (PM) for building his confidence and finding his voice on the carpet. Lewis and Elsie also got into the Extraordinary Zone for showing reciprocity when working together to complete a computer game.
