Fun ways of learning the common exception words

We have had a great start to the Spring Term in Daisy Class. The children have shown real enthusiasm for our new topic, Turn the Light On. So far we have focused on two books that portray the dark from quite different angles. Orion and the Dark was the first book we looked at. It is a great story about a boy who is afraid of the dark but once he is visited by The Dark character he changes his mind. The children wrote letters to Orion from The Dark trying to persuade him that there was nothing to be scared of. They took on the role very well and their persuasive letters were brilliant. The second book was called The Dark, in this story The Dark character was not quite as friendly but turned out to be kind in the end. You may have seen the drawers that the children painted and used to store a piece of writing in. We hope they have shared the story with you and explained about the piece of writing in their drawer.


Our maths this week focused on shape. We have started by naming 2D shapes including, pentagon, hexagon and octagon. A number of children had forgotten the name for a rectangle so any work completed at home on shape names would be beneficial. We will move on to 3D shape next week, discussing their names and properties.


In PSHE we looked at dangers in the home, dangers on the road and the danger of the sun. The children enjoyed this learning and were quite knowledgeable about safety. In science we have been learning about the life cycles of animals and humans. Again, the children have enjoyed this learning and were keen to share their own facts about animals and humans.  


As always, please do not hesitate to talk to us if you have any concerns relating to your child. 


Thank you
