Our book this week was ‘The Littlest Yak’ by Lu Fraser and Kate Hindley.   In this story Gertie is the littlest yak in her whole herd, and she's feeling stuck in her smallness - she wants to grow UP and have bigness and tallness.  She then rescues an even smaller yak and proves that even though you maybe small you can have bigness inside of you.

Our Rainbow Challenges this week have been related to this story:


Writing – Write Gerties ‘growing up plan’

Maths – Pu the yaks in size order and measure the biggest and the smallest

Funky Fingers – Sort the animal pasta

Outside – Rescue the tiniest, weeniest teeniest of yaks from the top of the A frame

Creative – Make a handprint yak

Playdough – Make a playdough mountain with a path


All the reception children that were in school this week completed all their Rainbow challenges and their Gold Challenge.  Well done everyone!


In maths this week the Reception children have been consolidating their learning of adding more and taking away.   The Nursery children have been continuing to using positional language and describing sequences of events.


The Reception children are continuing to learn new sounds in Read, Write Inc and working hard with their reading and spelling.   The Nursery children have been learning the sound ‘e’ and ‘l’.


On Thursday it was sports day.  We were really looking forward to it but unfortunately it rained and we had to stop half way though.


Next week our story will be ‘Immi’ by Karin Littlewood.
