Look what we've been up to
Friday 20th October
What a wonderful start the children in Robin class have made to their school journey. They are exhausted after a busy half term making friends and learning the routine of school.
Thank you to everyone who attended our tea party this afternoon. It was a very fitting end to our ‘Yummy Scrummy’ topic and lovely to see so many people here.
This week we enjoyed learning about Diwali and we were busy producing invitations, decorations and food for our party.
In phonics we learned the sounds g, o, c and k. We listened to a variety of different books containing these sounds. We have now learned the sounds satpinmdgock. Over the holidays you could help your child to spot these letters in books and on signs. You could also practise blending sounds together to make VC (it) and CVC (cat) words. We have also learned to read the high frequency (fairy) words in, it, is, at and and. Learning to sight read these words really helps to improve fluency. You could put them up in your house as passwords on doors, the TV, the fridge, etc or write them on to pieces of card and play pairs or snap with them.
Headteacher’s Award: Poppy for enthusiastically tackling busy learning challenges in the classroom.
Writer of the Week: Esmee for writing all the time!
Sports Award: Hollie for good ideas in our PE lesson and helping to tidy away the baskets after every PE session.
Learner of the week: Will return after the half term holiday.
Friday 13th October
This week we made and tasted delicious apple crumble. We have been reading Oliver’s Vegetables and Oliver’s Fruit Salad and we really enjoyed the story of Supertato. Our classroom was taken over by the Evil Pea, he caused all sorts of chaos. We have been counting and recognising numbers and practising letter formation. Thank you for taking the time to help us to write our names at home.
We love our phonics lessons and this week we have learned the sounds i, n, m, d. Please ask us to show you the actions, we would be delighted to. We have been practising reading the high frequency (fairy) words at, is, it and in. We have been putting sounds together and blending them to make words (for example s-a-t). You could help us to practise this by making words from satpinmd for us to read. You could put the letters on the fridge or put the letters on little cards for us to play with.
Well done to all of the Robin class children who are coming into the classroom independently.
We went to our first celebration assembly today. The following children received awards this week:
Sports Award: Nicholas for brilliant changing into his PE kit.
Headteacher’s Award: Amelie for having a positive attitude towards all activities and learning.
Learner of the week: Dylan for super blending.
We are looking forward to welcoming you into our classroom for our tea party next Friday 20th October at 2.15pm.
