Writing and Phonics: The Squad have been practicing listening to the beginning sounds of different words. They had a worksheet to complete which required them to choose the correct sound to match the picture. We also completed handwriting which was the letters (S, T and U). We are pleased with how far the Squad have come with this but also encourage extra practice at home. 

Mathematics: Measurement is a difficult topic to understand but the Squad blew us away with how quickly they grasped this. We began by explaining that everything can be measured, and we can use different pieces of equipment to measure such a ruler, tape measure etc. They then had a worksheet to complete which focused on measuring the item on the page using cubic squares. Well done! 

Creative Art: In sticking with the theme, the Squad were asked to complete their house and what it looks like inside. We are keeping this one for Art Expo and cannot wait for you to see it.  

FunFit Sports: Coach Trevor taught the Squad the rules of cricket and they played a few rounds. Well, done Squad! 

Music: Teacher Katy has been practicing our concert songs with the children and working through the tempo of each song. 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Next week is all about PETS ...

Creative Art: For art this week we completed a “what will I be when I grow up?” worksheet which will be kept for the Book of Me. We also made chef hats so that the Squad has a hat for cooking classes. We also had a free ‘messy’ play where they were allowed to use different equipment and art forms in order to express themselves.

Science and Experiments

 For our cooking class this week, the Squad did an interesting experiment where we made our own Crunchy Rock Candy, using ice-cream sticks, boiling water, food colouring and sugar. The Squad were fascinated by how the crystals were formed, once the water temperature decreased more molecules joined the sugar crystals.

For art this week we completed some lovely Easter pieces which will be taken home. They made a pop-up bunny from a cup and straws (created independently but with some guidance). They also made an Easter card which they wrote themselves and also stuck some pasta into patterns and painted it. Remember – some bunny loves you!
