Newgate have been non-stop counting this week! We have counted out fingers, our toys and even our daily sounds. Our focus on mathematics has been to recognise, write and count numbers up to 5. The children love to be challenged and the number formation tasks this week have done just that. The children have completed hungry caterpillar number lines, as well as tracing numbers beyond 10 in our outdoor provision.
In phonics this week, we have continued to learn our Set 1 sounds. The children are enjoying mastering their pinchy fingers as their confidence grows day by day when challenged with yet another new sound to learn. Our rhymes and dances help make phonics fabulous and fun!
Thank you to all the families who joined our curriculum presentation evening. It was wonderful to share our curriculum intensions with you all and answer any of your questions. Please refer to Google classroom for the homework challenges this week.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Miss Bowler, Mrs Bebbington and Mrs Thombs.
