This term we are looking at stories written by the author Eric Carle. We started with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, looking at the story items in the story sack. Once we were confident with the story we have been retelling the story using picture cards. We will be moving on to the stories The Bad Tempered Ladybird, The Very Quiet Cricket and The Munching Crunching Ladybird by Sheridan Cain. This term we have also been practicing to write our names.
This term we have been celebrating Chinese New Year and we have been looking at information books to help us to learn about the traditions of Chinese New Year. We also read the story of the Great Race and discovered that this year it is the year of the dog. We have been recognising the initial sounds from our name and writing them in Mandarin.
This term we have been 'settling in' and making friends. Our topic is 'Ourselves' and we have been reading 'All Kinds of People' by Emma Damon. We have been talking about how we are all special and unique and using the mirrors to look at our facial features. We have been making paper plate portraits.
