Sea Life Centre
In order to bring our learning to life we visited the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham. We had a guided tour and saw a 4D cinema show. We enjoyed seeing the penguins and jellyfish and loved exploring through the tunnels.
Kinetic Letters - Letter Formation
The children follow the adventures of Bouncy the brave monkey and Skip the scared monkey. We will first learn different sitting, kneeling and lying positions that will help to strengthen our bodies ready for writing. the next step is to make sure that our hands are ready for controlling the pencil and holding the pencil with the pincer grip. we will also be learning the 6 moves or strokes that are essential for forming letters. when the children are introduced to a new letter family they will bring home a sheet showing how each letter in that family is formed. Please help them to practice this whenever they are engaged in writing at home.
