Term 3

It’s been a busy term in Foundation. 
We have welcomed lots of new families this term and the children have settled in very quickly and have been busy exploring their new environment. 
Our learning focus has been ‘Where do you like to go?’
We have enjoyed talking about our favourite places to go with our families. 
We have read ‘Spot goes to the Park’ and ‘The Shark in the Park’. 
We have talked about local places and places further away e.g. where we like to go on holiday and other countries we have visited.
The recent snowy weather has been great fun to play in - making snow angels and snow figures!  It inspired us to find out more about life in the Polar regions for the different animals that live there. Our story focus was ‘Cuddly Dudley’. 
Pearl class have been looking at maps of Oxford, Europe and the world and talking about their connections to different countries.  
We will continue this learning in term 4. 
In maths, Pearl class have been learning about 3D shapes.  We have made some fantastic  models with various construction kits and also been designing and making our own models with recycled materials. We hope you like the models on display. 
Our new learning in maths is knowing how to add one more and two more to different numbers and how this can be recorded.  
Twinkle and Sparkle classes have been practicing their counting everyday. 

Outside of the classroom - we have been visiting the library in Littlemore. We love reading!
