Week beginning 23rd June 2014

This term our theme is The Five Senses!
Communication and Language

The children have enjoyed playing an animal and home sounds detective’s game. The children had to decide what the sound was and how or what the sound was made by. It was more tricky than it sounds without picture clues!

The children have been using their writing books to practice number formation. They have also enjoyed playing a listening game.

I Spy Table.

We have a sound of the week and we encourage the children to bring an item from home to display on our I spy table for the week.
Next week our sound focus will be reviewing each child’s sound recognition.
