Welcome to Cardiff Class Page
Our topic this term is 'Wonderful World!'
This week we will be learning four new sounds in phonics - ng (sing) and v. The children will bring home these sounds to practise at the weekend. We are working hard on handwriting in class - forming recogniseable letters, so please support your child with this in their homework activities. Forming the letters in their names is a good place to start and most children can do this so we are taking pride in forming each letter correctly now.
In Mathematics we are learning to use the language of 'more' and fewer' to compare two groups of objects, and to say the number that is one more than a given number up to 5 then 10. You might like to practise this mental maths on car journeys with your child or work it out at home using lego or dried pasta etc. We will also be using the language of 'more' and 'fewer' to compare two sets of objects. Playing different number games at home will really develop their confidence in recognising and using numbers as well as their awareness of relative values and quick recall of number facts.
The children are excited about performing their nativity for everyone this week and the costumes look amazing thank you. On Tuesday we will send the children home with their costumes and they should return for the evening performance wearing them please. We have been learning to use interactive books and some of these can be accessed on the padlet page so do take a look. Although it is nearly Christmas and we will have finished our nativity this week we are still working on curriculum and have plenty of fun learning to do in the next 2 weeks!
