What is my name?

Last week we continued learning about traditional tales and spent the first few days trying to work out what story we were going to be reading. We came up with our own list of names for the greedy imp and discussed ways to help the queen discover his real name. Luckily, it all ended happily and the queen was able to keep her first born child after one of her soldiers heard Rumpelstiltskin singing his name in the forest! 

In phonics we learnt about the brave and scared monkeys who form all our kinetic letters in handwriting. We started off by forming the letters in the ‘jumper family:’ 

/h/ start at the brave monkey, pull down, bump, back up to scared money, push over, down, bump, flick. 

/m/ started at the scared monkey, pull down, bump, back up to the scared monkey, push over, down, bump, back up to the scared monkey, push over, down, bump and flick.

/n/ start at the scared monkey, pull down, bump, back up to the scared monkey, push over, down, bump, flick. 

/r/ start at the scared monkey, pull down, bump, back up to the scared monkey, push over.

Can you show you family how to write these letter?

In maths we learnt how to compare two groups of objects using the language of more and fewer/less. We have also been learning how to add one more to a group of objects and how important it is to only count each object once. 

Your maths challenge this week is to send in a picture of you with one more than 7. You can use toys, food or your fingers to show your answer. Please send your photos to sophielavender@rosendale.cc

I hope you have had a lovely weekend.
