We have been very busy in Froglets this week getting ready for our Nativity on Thursday 5th December. The Froglets have been practising on the stage every day, singing their songs and can’t wait for you to see them all dressed up.
In Maths we have taken part in a whole school maths investigation this week based on the book- How many jelly beans?
Froglets looked at the colour of the beans and sorted them out. We then had a go at counting how many there were. We even had a go at comparing the groups to see which had more.
This week we also introduced our Mastery Meerkat Challenge, linked to the story How many Jelly Beans? This gave the children the opportunity to talk about how they know the answer, using talk to deepen their knowledge.
This week in Froglets we have started our new topic of light, dark and colours. We started by talking all about fireworks. The children shared their experiences of the colours and sounds they make and have done lots of fun firework learning.
In the creative area we have had lots of fun printing fireworks and sprinkling glitter.
We’ve been making lots of marks in the glitter tray. The children looked and the fireworks and used their fingers to draw them. Our story of the week this week was Wow said the owl. The children learnt all about the colours the owl could see and how to sign each colour using makaton.
