This week Ben and Betty have introduced us to the sound g. The children have listened to stories with g in the title eg The Gruffalo and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. They have learnt the shape of the letter and looked for the letter in the sand and around the classroom. They have collected items beginning with g and placed them in our basket. The children have learnt new rhymes liked with the sound eg Goosey,Goosey Gander… The children have tried to recount the story of Goldilocks using puppets. The children have responded well to recognising the letter g in the outside/inside

The children have been reminded about taking turns and sharing toys and equipment again this week. They have practiced good sitting and listening. The children have taken turns to give out the snack and milk. They have become very confident using the mood board and like to tell Rhodri how they are feeling. The older children continue to help the younger ones and this is very pleasing to see! I am especially pleased with their efforts to say please and thankyou as we have been reminded about good manners again this week. The children have been reminded about how important tooth brushing is and how to brush properly. We have talked about safety in the outside area and we must take our time. The children are learning about safety when using equipment like scissors.
