Treefrogs

Welcome to the Treefrogs’ Class Page

We are a Foundation Stage class with 30 children. Our Teacher is Miss Eyers (Mrs Mel Eyers-Gibbs) and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Zoe Farr, Miss Linda Butcher and Mrs Debs Wilkinson. Our page shows activities that we have been doing each month, which are included in our ongoing ‘Learning Journeys.’

This week in Treefrogs Class: (Week beginning 5th February)

We had another opportunity to play in our new Role Play Area: ‘A magical forest’and had a lot of fun.

We had a special ‘Sign to sing’ assembly on Thursday and thank you to everyone who donated a pound towards the charity.

We have learnt a new digraph and trigraph in phonics: oa and igh. We sent home a ‘rainbow alphabet’ the other week which contains all the digraphs we will be learning in Treefrogs class, so please check bookbags if you haven’t already. We now know how to form the following letters correctly: c o a d g q s  f and e.

We have been adding numbers this week in maths and been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and weighing.

Outdoor learning will continue again next term. Please see the outdoor letter in bookbags,

Group 3 will be spotting shapes during their shape walk, on the green, and group 1 will visit the copse to create a ‘magical spell!’ Group 2 can enjoy Child Initiated learning in the school grounds.

 

Please continue to use the Maths folders , with a set of Numicon and look for your new ‘mathletics’ password. Practise reading and spelling the words and sounds found in the Book bags.

Our Learner of the Week this week is: Joshua for his brilliant spelling and model making.
