Learning in Cats Class...
We have children in our class at different levels in their journey with phonics. We use Letters and Sound and See and Learn cards. We do a lot of work around our environmental sounds and through our music activities especially with rhythm. Pete, our music teacher supports us with this. Lots of children in class are exploring and developing different vocal sounds, intensive interaction really supports this.
In Cats class we are learning to Handle books with interest and Share stories with adults and peers. We have weekly sessions to the library where we choose books that we like and we have the opportunity to share them with adults. We also have a book area in the classroom. The books change in accordance to the topic we are learning about. We are learning to look at books independently, alongside an adult and in small groups with our peers.
In Cats class we separate Maths into Number and Shape Space and Measure (SSM). In our number lessons we look at counting songs, using props to count and sensory play to explore the shape and quantities of numbers. In SSM lessons we explore different shapes and colours. We also explore filling and pouring and using money. We access maths resources during our maths lessons and through the maths area in our classroom.
