A very happy week!
Wow, what a wonderful end to a brilliant first half-term at school. The children have been very busy recognising, manipulating and making numbers to 3, creating autumnal art, practising their reading, working on their gross motor skills and using lots of technology in their learning. Miss Deighton has noticed how many children have been extra kind and helpful to their friends this week as lots of us have been poorly! We are building lots of lovely friendship groups and are working hard to remember to share and take turns in our play.
On the last day of term, we enjoyed a part afternoon filled with lots of different party games and dancing.
FD teaching team hope that you all have a wonderful half term break with your families.
See you soon!
Week commencing 4.10.21
We have had another brilliant week! This week, we have started talking and learning all about Autumn time. We can talk about different changes we see in Autumn and name lots of animals that come out in autumn time. We used conkers in our tens frames to help us create different amounts of numbers to 10, created our very own houses out of giant boxes, practised our handwriting using chalk, have continued to blow Miss Deighton away with our amazing writing and phonics and have been singing lots of songs! Please enjoy some photos below.
Week Commencing 27.10.21
We have been very busy this week! We have enjoyed having hot school dinners, have been creating box model houses, have had a go at retelling the three little pigs story and have LOVED receiving our new book bags. Miss Deighton is so proud of all of the reading practise we have been doing at home.
Lots of our busy time activities have linked to our phonics learning. This means that we are getting really good at spotting and writing the sounds we have learned so far: 's, a, t, p, i, n'. We enjoyed matching the words to their initial sounds and went on a phonics treasure hunt around the classroom! We have also met Puzzle this week and we love him. He helps us with our maths learning and loves to watch us in lesson time. Please read our maths topic of the week page to find out more about our super maths learning.
Week commencing 20.09.21
We have had a fun-filled week! We have had a go at lots of different activities this week that get our fingers ready for writing. We have tried carefully creating peg board pictures, have been practising writing sounds in the sand, have created three little pigs houses, enjoyed more dough disco and have had our very first hand writing and phonics lessons. Miss Deighton can't believe how fantastic we already are at spotting and writing the sounds, 's, a, t'! We can't wait to practise our new reading books at home this weekend and tell you all about our fun activities.
Please enjoy some photos below. Scroll further to read all about our adventure in the garden!
After reading 'The Three Little Pigs', we had a chat about what we could make using sticks. We then decided to go into the school wild garden and collect sticks of our own! We had so much fun collected the right shape and size sticks and can't wait to create some artwork and sculptures using the sticks next week.
Week commencing 13.09.21
We LOVED learning the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' this week! We acted out the story, watched the author read it, had a go at drawing parts of the story and even made our own bear faces!
The author of this book is called Michael Rosen. We have learnt that an author is somebody who writes the words in a book.
We have had a fun time exploring lots of our new provision this week. Some of our favourite moments have been our outside play times, building with the crates (we built a pirate ship!), dough disco, creating in the workshop and enjoying the water play. Miss Deighton was so proud of us because we worked as a team all by ourselves to build our very own stream of water. It was so long!
