~Learning in Meerkats~

Phonics and Reading

We use both Letters and Sounds and Ruth Miskin Read, Write Inc. to support our phonics. We do activities from listening games, grapheme recognition and phoneme sounds, blending and segmenting to read and spell CVC words.

Maths

In maths we use Development Matters, PScales and the National Curriculum to plan creatively according to the topic. All our maths includes hands on learning and a variety of different activities through small group or 1:1 support. There are many opportunities throughout the day to practice our numeracy skills.

 

All areas of the curriculum are supported by the use of ICT, continuous provision and homework.

~Enterprise~

Meerkats are learning about Enterprise. We made raspberry jam by picking fresh raspberries from our very own sensory garden, then in our cooking session we adding sugar and boiled it to make jam. We put the jam in jars, wrote labels and made price tags ready to sell around school. Of course we had to taste the jam to make sure it was sweet and yummy!

We sold out straight away, the money raised will go towards our Christmas trip.
