Preschool News – An animal-tastic week!

Back home  /  News  /  Preschool News – An animal-tastic week!

Hi Preschool,

You have been very busy with your home learning this week. Your learning focus has been based around the theme animals.

You began each day singing the hello song with Ashleigh and then got busy with your tasks.

Within your literacy tasks you have drawn a picture of your favourite animal and created a fact file all about your animal. I have learnt that tigers eat deer and pigs, tortoise are very slow and chimpanzees enjoy eating bugs of each other – yuk! You have enjoyed playing the animal sound matching game and singing 'Old McDonald had a farm' identifying the different sounds of animals- great listening! You have also continued with your daily phonics sessions, this week's sounds were 'e,l,h,r,j', Fred talk, dough disco and working on letter formation in your name – I have been super impressed at everybody's improving pencil grip and letter formation. You have also retold me one of your favourite stories – I loved listening to these! And this week you were treated to a story each day read by Libby. Next week Ashleigh will read you a story each day.

Within you mathematics learning you have focused on number 3 using the numberblocks 'three' video clip to support your learning. You have focused on counting 1,2,3 and reading stories that encourage this e.g. 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and 'Three Billy Goat Gruff'. You have also looked at the number 3 in relationship to numerals 2 and 1 and have been encouraged to use a stem sentence e.g one apple and 2 apples make 3 apples. You have also been practising recognising amounts using dice, dominoes and even recognising amounts of food on your plate! Thank you for all your videos showing you counting back from 10-0, some of you even counted 12-0 – wow! You have also enjoyed this weeks animal counting game online too – great job preschool!

You have also been very busy completing your learning project activities....

The project this week aimed to provide opportunities for you to learn more about key animals that you are interested in.

You read the story, 'Dear Zoo' then thought about the animal you could add into the story and label it . Here are some of your ideas:
– so they sent me a... snake, but he was too scary....so I sent him back.
– so they sent me a... dinosaur but he was too big....so I sent him back.

You have Identified the birds in your garden and used books and the RSPB bird identifier website to support you. You then drew a picture of your favourite bird, many of you have said your favourite bird is a Robin

You have made me smile this week with your videos and pictures of you playing animal charades with your families, you have acted out being a monkey, elephant, penguin, unicorn and much more – great fun had by all!

You have looked at big and small animals and drawn as many big animals as you can on one piece of paper and as many small animals as you can on another sheet of paper.

You took time to find all of the animal books in your house and then sorted the books into groups e.g. animals that can fly, swim, big, small, live on a farm/ at the zoo, some of you even separated books into a mythical animals group.

Finally you have also been busy creating an animal den using blankets, sheets, chairs, beds and pillows. I enjoyed watching pandas and foxes in their dens :)

In other news it has been wonderful to support some of our families that have taken part in raising money as part of the 2.6 challenge . You have been litter picking and walking 2.6 miles. Well done!

Thank you as always for the time taken to upload observations to tapestry. We will see you again next week (via tapestry).

Take and stay safe everybody,
Tara, Libby and Ashleigh x
