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 11th June):

We have been revisiting the digraphs: sh ch th ng ai ee oa or ur oi ow and trigraph igh in phonics.  We have learnt ear, air and ure. These are all on the Rainbow alphabet which every child has in their bookbags. We now know how to form the following letters correctly: c o a d g q s f e r n m l i b p h j k u and v. We have begun to learn about consonant blends as well.

Last term we learnt the story of: ‘The magic porridge pot’ and have recorded our storytelling: Treefrogs story of ‘The magic porridge pot.’ (Please click here to hear it!)

We have started to learn about the story of ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ and stuck the pictures and words in to our own books.

We have learnt about Symmetry and making symmetrical pictures.

We have now finished Street dance for this term and have practised for Sports day next week.

Outdoor learning is continuing again next term, on mainly Tuesdays. Please see the outdoor letter in bookbags. Our school trip to the farm is on the 4th of July and we are very excited about going!

All groups this term will be visiting the copse and going for a flower hunt walk.

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.
