Friday 15th October
Dear parents and carers,
We have had a lovely time in the autumn sunshine this week. First we went on a walk around the school grounds looking for and collecting signs of autumn and then we used them to create artwork based on the story Leaf Man. Our drumming workshop with Jim was so much fun and the children enjoyed having a go with the instruments and copying rhythms
Our learning next week:
Talk for writing
This week our focus story will be Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson
We will be watching the episodes ‘Five’, exploring the number bonds which make up numbers 1-5 and how to representing them.
Our new phonic sounds this week are h, b, f, l together with the tricky word ‘the’
A few notices:
We know that many of you have been asking for the children to be able to change their reading books more often. Whilst we would love to be able to make this happen, unfortunately our supply of Cream Band books (without words) is limited. The focus for our reading at the moment is for the children to practise using pictures to tell stories to develop their story language and vocabulary. This is an area that we feel many of the children will really benefit from practising. So please use any books that you have at home to work on this skill together rather than feel that you have to keep reading the same school book until we can change it.
We are going to start using the school library this week and so the children will borrow a book to bring home for the week each Friday. This will give another chance for storytelling!
All of the classes are very close to filling their jars with dojos and earning a treat for the class! We are hoping that the jars will be filled by Friday and so are planning a treat for that day (23rd). The children can come into school dressed as a character from the story (a witch, cat, dog, frog, bird, dragon) and we shall watch the film of the story with a treat to eat!
We are looking forward to seeing you at the parent consultations next Tuesday and Thursday.
