This week the children have enjoyed making superhero themed box models as well as making rhyming ladders for Supertato to try to help the veggies.

Next Thursday (22nd November) will be our superhero day where we ask the children to come in dressed as a superhero.  Can you please make sure that your child brings in a potato on Monday ready for our Supertato activity.  Many thanks! 

Have a great weekend!

Week ending 2nd November 2018

Welcome back to school after our half term break, we hope you all had a good week.  The children have been working hard this week and have enjoyed exploring our new topic 'Superheroes'.  We have read Supertato and are looking out for Evil Pea.

In Phonics the children have been learning to read and write the sounds 'm and 'd'.  They have learnt to read and write words with these letters in as well as learning the tricky word 'the'.  Next week we will be learning the sounds 'o' and 'g'.

In Maths we have looked at recognising numbers to 20 and matching them to corresponding objects.  Next week we will continue to look at recognising numbers to 20 as well as ordering numbers.

We have also started our number of the week this week and have been focusing on number 1.   Each week the children will focus on learning a new number.  We will explore the number in lots of different ways.  We will learn where it comes on a numberline, look at numbers that are more and fewer than it and will show it in lots of different ways (on a dice, with a cube, with numicon, on our fingers, numbers of sides and corners on a shape).  Next week our focus number is number 2.  

Our whole school sponsored reading afternoon to raise money for our new library will take place next Monday (5th November 2018).  Can you please return any sponsor forms to us on Monday so we can sign off the challenges that they do.  Many thanks!

Have a good weekend!

Week ending 12th October 2018

This week has been an exciting week for the children with the wedding of Rosie and Billy the puppets.  The children enjoyed taking part in the service at the church with Reverend Sue.  They took on the roles of bridesmaids, best man, father of the bride as well as carrying Billy and Rosie.  It was a lovely service and the children all did a great job.  Thank you to all the parents who came along with us to help on the walk to the church.    

In Phonics the children have been learning to read and write the sounds 't' and 'p'.  They have learnt the Jolly Phonic's songs and action as well as the handwriting rhyme.  Next week we will be learning the sounds 'i' and 'n'.

Have a lovely weekend!
