We have had a wonderful and exciting half term full of Christmas cheer.
Thank you to all the families who have supported the children in getting ready for the Christmas nativity Performance, I think you’ll all agree that they were fantastic and so brave for standing up on the stage in front of everyone!
The children have been busy writing lists and letters to Father Christmas and we are so excited to see how their writing is progressing.
We have been busy over the last month practising our writing skills, our number recognition and counting skills and we have also been learning about capacity!
Since coming back after half term we have been busy learning all about fireworks.
We have a fireworks shop role play where we are selling and buying using 1p coins.
We have been creating firework pictures and using different coloured paints to show the sparks that fireworks make.
Outside we have been building pretend bonfires and making guy’s to put on them.
What a busy few weeks we have had in the Kroenek class.
We have been learning about sequencing our daily routines as part of our learning about time in Maths.
In phonics we have been learning lots of new sounds, some high frequency ‘red’ words and we have been beginning to segment the sounds we hear in words for writing.
In PE we have been learning to move isolated body parts and understanding how we can link movements together at different levels.
It’s nearly time for us to move on to the next homework challenges, so if you have any homework from this term still to bring in, please bring it in by Friday of this week.
Thank you to all of the children who have sent in some homework already. Here are two examples of the fabulous collages which they have created.
Welcome to all of our new reception class pupils…what a busy and exciting week we have had in the reception class this week.
We have been learning all about our new routines and finding out where things are in our classroom and the main school building.
PE: We will be doing PE 4 times a week and trying to change most days so please make sure your PE kit is at school everyday.
Library: We will be going to the library on a Wednesday and changing our library books once a week. Please share them at home as much as you like and then return each Wednesday for our visit to the library, where you will be able to choose a new one.
Reading books: These have been sent home so you can start reading every night and gathering your reads towards the reading karate belts. We will gift any missed ones from this week because of our staggered start, which was different to the rest of the school.
Homework: This is for the whole half term. Please complete 2 challenges to gain 100 points and receive your certificate.
