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 16th April ):

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 and b.

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 begun to learn about coins in maths and how to count in 2s, 10s and 5s.

We have begun street dance again with our new teacher Lottie.

Outdoor learning is continuing again next term. Please see the outdoor letter in bookbags.

All groups this term will be visiting the pond again and going for a 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.
