We have had another busy week this week getting engrossed in our topic of under the sea. We worked hard all week making some work for our whole school display. Our display is up in the 3/4 stairwell we use to get to the ICT suite. Lucky us, we get to see our gorgeous work every Friday.
This week we have been trying really hard to collect our three key jobs. Each week there are three jobs that we have to try and do independently to collect a key on our board. This week the jobs were -
- To draw/make a fish or sea creature
- To play with a new friend
- To make a model in the construction are and tell an adult about it
Look at how we did -
A lovely week this week apart from the miserable weather!
Well done to everyone who remembered their PE kits this week for outdoor games and gymnastics.
We have carried on with our daily run/jog around the field and everyone seems to be enjoying it. We have certainly been noticing how hard and fast our heart has been pumping after we finish.
Our trip letters went out this week. We are very excited to be going on two trips this term to help us with our topic of animals.
Friday 2nd February
Monday 26th February
If you would like to help on either of these trips just let one us know
Wow! What a super busy first week back we have had.
We started our Gymnastics sessions this week. They are on a Thursday morning. Please ensure a PE kit is in school all week for your child.
We had another first this week - our Anchor sessions started with the amazing George. We learnt some new phonic songs about the letter names and sounds. It was so much fun.
We have been busy practising for our Nativity this week getting ready for our parents and carers coming to watch next week.
Our Nativity is on Tuesday at 2.15pm and Thursday at 9.15am everyone is welcome to come along and watch.
Look at our super number work we have been doing this week. We have been exploring different numbers and ways to represent them.
Last week was anti bullying week. RN spent a lot of time thinking about how to STOP bullying. We talked about what bullying was - hurting someone else...
We thought really hard about all of the kind things we could do for one another to make our school a bully free place! During circle time we took it in turns to roll a ball of string to someone, telling them why we thought they were a "good friend". We made a friendship web! Take a look...
What a wonderful week we have had working on a Black History topic. We have been learning about Mae Jemison who was the first african american woman who went to space.
We finished the week by celebrating with our parents and carers at our stay and play session. The whole school had put up their work in the hall for everyone to see.
We have had a wonderful start to term - meeting all our new friends and exploring our new classroom.
This half term our topic is all about Julia Donaldson and her amazing stories. So far we have enjoyed the Gruffalo story. As part of this work we have been working out in our tipi which can found in the Forest School area on the field. We have had so much fun listening to the story in the tipi, acting it out in the forest and making some gruffalo sticks.
As a school we take part in the Brush Bus Programme, this means all our reception children brush their teeth after dinner. We do this along to some fun songs!
