This week our learning is based around Elmer. 

In Early Morning Work this week we will be exploring Numicon to help develop our number recognition. We will also be using the laptops for the first time, playing a simple game with a partner. Before we use them we will talk about e-safety and how important it is that we stay on the website we have been shown and not to click on things when we are unsure of what they are. 

We will start our Elmer fun on Monday morning when we will read the story and decorate our own squares to make one giant patchwork elephant as a team. We will be using Elmer to talk about our favourite colours and carry out our own class survey to collect this data. We may even then make it into a bar chart!

Elmer will also inspire some learning on repeating patterns this week. We will use a range of resources to support our learning and make our own repeating patterns. 

We will also be listening to and talk about the initial sounds that we hear at the beginning of words. We will be trying to find lots of things that begin with these sounds. 

We look forward to a very Elmer inspired week!
