What we have been learning this week
Fantastic learning from everyone this week, Rabbits, and you are becoming more and more resilient every day! You are listening carefully for sounds at the beginning of words and sorting them into sets. You have been exploring numbers, too, in lots of ways: how to count carefully, how to recognise numerals and use rhymes to help us write them.
My favourite day this week was, of course, our Something Special Day, when you all brought in something that is special to you. Every person shared their item, telling us all what it was and why it was special to them.
We sorted items into different groups: cuddly things, things with wheels, things you can put things inside, things with pictures. We also practised drawing our special things.
Also this week we have been fantastic "learning detectives" trying to spot and discuss the learning we are doing, such as exploring why can you make a sand mound in some sand but not in the other sand? We also created creatures from our story - there were some fantastic lion drawings. We even pretended we were in our own big red bath!
Talking to you all about what you are thankful for was truly wonderful. You had some lovely ideas of what you were thankful for and why. So parents, grandparents and siblings you are appreciated by your gorgeous children.
What we shall be working on next week
It is harvest celebration time so we will be learning our first oral story, "The Little Red Hen", so expect us to come home chanting it. We will be making some bread - great for strengthening our fingers - and following instructions while we're baking!
How you can help with home learning
Keep counting carefully, perhaps the food on your plate, the acorns or conkers you collect on a walk, or the number of toys in your bath are just a few ideas.
Keep learning nursery rhymes - this week we were singing "The Grand old Duke of York".
