Weekly Update

Friday 27th January 2023

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Our learning this week: 

Literacy

 

 We will be continuing our Talk for Writing text, Going for a Song.  We will be encouraging the children to write their own story maps.

Maths

 

 We will be learning how to work out the difference between two numbers.

Phonics

 

 We have now learnt all the sounds!  Next week we will be focusing on chunking longer words. 


Thanks to those who sent in fruit for the class to share.  The children have enjoyed learning about new fruits and have been developing their social skills through conversational snack times.  Our favourite fruits this week have been strawberries, raspberries, grapes, cucumber, and melon.  A class contribution of fruit is instead of your child’s individual snack so please do not feel obliged to send both.

 

If you haven’t signed up for our Maths workshop it’s not too late.  We will be checking numbers to prepare resources at the beginning of next week so please don’t forget to click the link and let us know if you will be joining us. 

 

At 8:50am we start our whole class learning and the electronic register has been sent through at this point.  If you do arrive after the classroom door is shut this means that the register has been sent, and you will need to go to the main reception to ask for it to be updated to include your child. Thank you for your support with this.   

 

Now the children are settled into school we would like to open our doors and invite you in to support the children’s learning.  We will be hosting games afternoons and are looking for parent volunteers to come into school for the afternoon and work with the children playing a variety of board and card games.

We will be running our games afternoons on the following dates from 1:45pm – 2:45pm. 

Tuesday 28th February, Tuesday 7th March, Tuesday 14th March, Tuesday 21st March

We appreciate life is busy so even if you can volunteer for one afternoon out of the four, we would be grateful for your support.  If you have a DBS and would like to come in and support the children, please email yearr@eastwick.thpt.org.uk. 

 

With best wishes
