Topic Our topic this half term was ‘Dinosaurs’. We have been on a trip to Cardiff Museum and had a workshop about dinosaurs! We had a lovely day and learned lots of new information about dinosaurs. We also had a dinosaur visit our classroom and we had lots of discussion about why he came; we asked lots of questions and had lots to say. Take a look at the video on our twitter page @miss_kenvyn
Languages, Literacy & Communication
In literacy, Dosbarth Castell St Fagans have been retelling the story of ‘Time Train’ by Paul Fleischman. In the book, children go on a school trip back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. We used Talk 4 Writing actions to sequence and plan the story. We have also been learning our Phase 2 Phonic sounds. Every day we practise our sounds and have a go at writing the sound of the week on our whiteboards as well as in and around the classroom/outdoor area using sand, paint, chalk and other fun things that you can write with.
Mathematics & Numeracy
In numeracy, we have been reciting and counting to 10 and beyond. We have been finding out about 2D shapes and their properties. We have also been working hard to repeat patterns of 3 and we have been finding out what ‘one more’ and ‘one less’ of a number is within 10.
