We planted our beanstalks in a see through cup using a wet paper towel, so that the children can observe the seed as it germinates.

Christmas Activities

Snow Fun

Phonics

 

Please find enclosed in your child's home school book a phonics pack that will help you support your child’s phonics learning at home. The pack includes sound cards and an information booklet for you to use as a prompt when practising reading and writing at home. The phonic cards can also be purchased off Amazon if you would like a sturdier set.

During this month you would normally be invited to attend a phonics presentation session where you would receive further information about how we teach phonics in school. Unfortunately this is not able to happen this year so the power point is now available for you to view via Tapestry and the school website.

Please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher if you require any further information.

๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ” A mystery to solve ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”

 

We had a mystery to solve this afternoon ๐Ÿ” (10.11.21). When the boys and girls came back to the classroom from lunchtime there were large muddy footprints all over the floor. We conducted an investigation and followed the footprint trail and found that it led to our cave. We searched the classroom for clues and discovered lots of interesting objects which might help us like leaves, twigs and food. 
 

Who could have made these footprints?  Who built a cave in the classroom?  
 

We sat down to discuss the situation and then all the children drew a picture of who they predicted it could have been.  There were some very interesting suggestions including  a bear, a dinosaur, a cat, a bird, a monster, a crocodile, a rabbit, a mouse and many more. 

The investigation continues …………..

๐Ÿ‘ข๐Ÿ‘ขWelly Walk ๐Ÿ‘ข๐Ÿ‘ข

 

It was very exciting today (8.11.21).  We all went on a Welly Walk to visit a secret forest to look for the signs of Autumn and the different types of terrain.  The children noticed the leaves falling from the trees and two the swaying grass. They all sat quietly and heard the wind blowing through the forest and some birds singing. We walked through long wavy grass and squelched through some thick oozy mud around a river/pond. The children predicted that frogs ๐Ÿธ and fish ๐ŸŸ lived in the water! We had lots of fun and managed not to get too muddy.

Our Star and Courtesy winners this week are Jude and Olivia. Well done! โญ๏ธโค๏ธ
