Self-confidence and self-awareness: Children are confident to try new activities, and to say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.
Writing: Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
The world: Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one to another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.
Technology: Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular purposes.
Exploring and using media and materials: Children sing songs, make music and dance, and experiment with ways of changing them. They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
Today is our final day on Mini Beasts. I would like you to use all your new knowledge to create a fact file page on your favourite Mini Beast. I will attach a template but you could also create on in your green books. I would like your child to pick their favourite Mini Beast, draw a picture of it and find out some facts about it, they could use google or a book. They could find out where they live, what they eat and how big the mini beast is.
Don't forget about the song you have been learning this week. I am looking forward to seeing all of these actions. You don't have to do the full song maybe just the chorus that repeats. Enjoy!
