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 9th July):
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 v w x y and z . 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 been learning about the story of ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ and have completed our own versions of the story.
We have learnt about Symmetry and making symmetrical pictures.
We have now finished Street dance for this term and have had our Sports day. It was very successful and all the Treefrogs were given a team point for doing so well. Next week we will be practising our throwing and catching skills, and tennis skills.
Outdoor learning is continuing again this term, on mainly Tuesdays. Please see the outdoor letter in bookbags. Our school trip to the farm was on the 4th of July and we had a brilliant time. We have started to make a non-fiction farm book.
All groups this term will be visiting the copse and going for a flower hunt walk.
