Our first story of the week was by Julia Donaldson, What the ladybird heard. It is a very exciting tale about a ladybird who lives on a farm and saves the cow from the robbers. We discussed directional language while drawing up a big map of the farm, going left, right, across and around. Can you use some chalk on the pavement to draw up a path with your child to follow?  

We have also been matching and counting spots of ladybirds. We have found a few flying around in the garden, a lovely sign that spring is here. Can you spot creatures when you’re out and about? Send us some picture! 

Our second story this week was The Selfish Crocodile. This book teaches children about sharing and about the importance of taking care of their teeth. Use this opportunity to your child about looking after their teeth; brushing them twice a day and not having too many sugary snacks.  

We looked at a big set of teeth and talked about how to clean them properly, children also shared their experience of visiting the dentist and how they look after their teeth. 

Next week we will be investigating at life cycles, watching our caterpillars grow and talking about looking after babies too. If you have not yet sent us a baby photo of your child, please do! 

Remember, it is Family Friday on the 22 March, feel free to pop in to look at your child’s learning journals between 8.30 and 9.00 am.
