Our Enterprise Week
It was our enterprise week between 9th and 13th January, we made peppermint bath bombs and sold them for £1 a bag. We made and packaged them ourselves and designed posters to help sell them. Thank you to everyone who bought some and supported us - we made £24 profit!
Learning in Chimps Class
Phonics and Reading
We use both Letters and Sounds and Ruth Miskin Read, Write Inc. to support our phonics. We play lots of listening games and do activities to develop our grapheme recognition and phoneme sounds. This helps us with blending and segmenting so that we can read and write words.
We have at least one focus story each half term and these are usually read on a daily basis. We have variety of fiction and non-fiction texts available in class and follow the Oxford Reading Tree and Project X reading schemes.
In Maths we use Development Matters, P Scales and the National Curriculum to plan creatively according to the topic. All our maths incorporates hands on learning through a variety of different activities including small group or 1:1 work. We have a dedicated Maths area in the classroom and include Maths in many of our continuous provision to provide lots of opportunities to practice our numeracy skills throughout the day.
