“But by the grace of God I am what I am.”
1 Corinthians 15:10
Learning Objective: To recognise sounds in words.
Speaking: Express themselves effectively, showing awareness of listeners’ needs.
Choose a stick with an unusual shape and texture; pass the stick around collecting the children’s words to describe the stick. Encourage them to look closely and say what they see. Use their senses, what does it feel like, smell like? Scribe their words and record.
Using the children’s words write a group poem e.g.
Print out sticks onto A3 paper so that each child can add their own line to the poem. Children could write their line during group/guided writing activity or as an independent writing activity and these could be added to a display.
This week please explore the videos on Alphablocks that blend sounds together.
Learning Objective: Explores the characteristics of everyday objects, 2D and 3D shapes using mathematical language to describe them.

Outside explore patterns again but emphasising repetitive aspect.
Resources: sticks, stones, leaves, petals etc
Understanding the World
Learning Objective: Uses technologies to enhance, change or recreate within a learning experience.
