Week beginning 14th November 2016

Over the past few weeks , we have been working incredibly hard in class to develop our sentence writing. We have been making sure that  when we write a sentence we  include full stops, capital letters , finger spaces , letters on the line and we also make sure that our letters sit on the line.

We have enjoyed learning this week about using our power for good , linked to Anti bullying week. In class we looked at a Topsy and Tim story about a little boy who had children being unkind to him in the playground. The children were able to pick up on the unkind things that happend and many useful suggestions of how you could be a good friend.

We have now got our Script for our Nativity and words  will be sent home this coming week for you to practice with your children.

Please remember to bring in a photograph of your child on their birthday,

I hope you have enjoyed your weekend.

Welcome Back After Half Term

Welcome back to school and I hope that you enjoyed your half term holiday.
The children have come back and settled well.
Our topic this half term is Celebrations and Festivals. 
This week we have been enjoying learning about the Hindu Festival Diwali. We have also been learning about 3D shapes. 

The children have enjoyed making their own Mendhi patterns and counting in 5's.
We have also been making our own Rangoli patterns using different coloured rice. 

We have enjoyed learning about how Rama rescued Sita , from Ravannah. We enjoyed making some Diwali sweets called Barfi and also learning about how Hindus celebrate Diwali.
We have been enjoying playing and learning in our Hindu Temple Roleplay are.
Next week we are learning and thinking about Fireworks and the week after we will be thinking about autumn,

Please continue to practise your children's words and sounds with them and also hearing them read. We are encouraging the children to point to the words and sounds as they read to help develop their fluency and also 1-1 correspondence.

Thank you for your continued support 

Miss Parmley
