This week we started a new topic thinking about Autumn. First we talked about the seasons and went on an Autumn walk round the track looking for signs of Autumn. Then we wrote about the different things that happen in Autumn in our writing books. We also made Autumn collage pictures using tissue paper. We used magnifying glasses to look more closely at autumn objects. 

In PE we have continued looking at different ways of travelling and used the benches for the first time. In Dance we have been listening to songs and following the instructions. The children are continuing to do an excellent job of changing independently. 

This week we learnt the new sounds ‘d' 'g’ and ‘o’. On Monday we went to the Beehive in small groups and played the drums. Then pravctised forming 'd' on our own. Then we cork printed grapes on to a large 'g' and practised the formation. Lastly we formed 'o' and painted an octopus. 

In Maths this week we have been learning about weight. First we looked at the scales and talked about what we use them for and what happens when we put different objects in each side. Then we investigated the weight of different objects to find out which was the heaviest. 

Well done to those children who have been bringing in WOW Stars this half term! It is lovely to hear about your achievements outside of school.

Next week is Half Term, please enjoy the break and we hope to see you at St George's Church on Friday for our Harvest Assembly at 9.30am

This week we continued with our keeping healthy topic. We started the week by focusing on hygiene and talked about how we wash our hands and clean our teeth. Then we thought about our school day and the different things we do to keep healthy, eat lots of fruit and vegetables, drink water, be kind to others and rest when we get home.

In PE we have continued looking at different ways of travelling on the floor. In Dance we have been listening to songs and following the instructions. The children are continuing to do an excellent job of changing independently. 

Image result for phoneme frameThis week we learnt the new sounds ‘m’ and ‘n’. On Monday we smelt different things with our noses and talked about what we thought they were. On Tuesday we ate malteasers and practised the 'm' letter formation. We have also continued practising writing our sounds and starting to segment and blend words using sound buttons e.g. t a p. This week we have identified the sounds in different words and wrote them down in a phoneme frame.


In Maths this week we have been learning about patterns and recognising them in the environment. We looked at photographs of different objects and talked about the shapes and patterns we could see. Then we made our own repeating patterns using cotton reels for printing.

Well done to those children who have been bringing in WOW Stars so far! It is lovely to hear about your achievements outside of school.

Next week our topic will be Autumn and we will be performing in our Harvest Assembly at St George's Church. Please join us for 9.30am start.
