Thank you to our parent helpers.
This week we looked at how we make pancakes. In literacy we wrote the list of ingredients and instructions of how we make pancakes. Unfortunately Mrs Jilks didn’t follow them correctly and made the oil too hot. This set off the fire alarms and we had a trip to the top of the playground. It was all good practise!
We went to church with our prayer friends on Ash Wednesday and were really well behaved during the service. Well done to all.
Thursday we all dressed up for book week and completed fun activities around books.
We ended the week looking at different types of technology and talking about what we use them for.
This week we have been making the most of the sunshine and took our learning outdoors. We have a garage and car showroom and lots of activities to support our mark making and mathematic skills. In the classroom we have now got a theatre in the role play area. Some photographs of the week are below. We will be taking part in World Book Day along with the rest of the school. Children are invited to dress up as their favourite book character. Staff will also be dressing up for the day. We will be judging a rock painting competition to see which rock has the best representation of a favourite story and a prize will be given to the best in each class. Please send the rocks into school on Wednesday or Thursday morning.
On Friday your child will have brought home a list of new tricky words. Please would you help your child to read and practise spelling them, this really helps with their independent writing.
Reception have been learning a new dance in their weekly dance lesson. Attached are some clips of the session. Have a great half term.
This week we have been looking closely at the coins we use. The children have sorted them by colour and shape. They have coloured the coins, counted the coins and used them in their role play. One Friday they used the coins to ‘buy’ an end of day treat! We have also been matching the letters of the alphabet by name and phoneme. The children are good at naming phonemes but are not so confident when the naming the letters of the alphabet, this is an area we are still working on and would love your support with this at home. In our handwriting sessions we have been practising writing c, o and g and also writing numbers. Below are some photographs of the week.
This week we have been finding out all about making healthy choices. We made healthy dinner plates and choose a healthy selection of food groups to make a lunchbox. Our literacy this week was labeling our choice of foods and we are very pleased with how well the children are getting at sounding out words to write. On Friday we had tried some of the healthy food choices we had talked about during the week. Mathematics this week was subtraction. The children have been practically subtracting and some of them have also completed subtraction worksheets. We have been practising our handwriting skills, baptising a baby in RE, sharing a prayer service with Year 6, learning new words and listening to stories without pictures or props. Below are some photographs of our very busy week.
The children have some more tricky words that they need to practise, will you please help them to do this. We would like to say thank you to all of you that take the time to read with your child, it really does make a difference to how they progress in their reading skills. Please can we ask that everyone spares a little time each day to help your child read their book. Thank you.
