Holy Trinity CofE Primary School (Merton)

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School


This Week:   Monday 22nd January 2018
The children have had a great week.. They have loved making lots of Humpty's and spotting out rhyming words!
The topic this half term is 'Nursery Rhymes' and this week we will be discussing '1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive'. We will be singing the rhyme and looking at lots of stories based on sea creatures and the sea! Our main story about fish is called 'Rainbow Fish' by Marcus Pfister. We will be working specifically on how we can be kind to our friends (what can we say/do). If you have any stories about sea life or based around nursery rhymes then please feel free to bring them in. 
In Maths we are discussing 2D shapes and their properties whilst continuing our investigation of weights using various objects.  
The children will be continuing their learning about who created the world and how He did it. We will be discussing how the earth was formed over 7 days and who the main people in this story are/why they are important. 
Home Thinking:
Reading books with your children is hugely beneficial and will support their language and understanding.. Discussing the book and asking your children questions about the characters or plot will help support your child's understanding further.  
If you could continue to practice counting with your children that would be great, as it will help to secure their knowledge of numbers (particularly up to 10). You could also help your child to recognize numbers (0-5). This could be done when walking down the road (door numbers/license plates/bus numbers) to make it more fun and give meaning to why we learn numbers. 
Please could you bring in boxes of tissues for runny noses.
Reading books are changed every Thursday so please ensure your child comes to school with it in their bags. 
Please can you make sure that all clothes/scarves etc are named! And that you have a spare set of clothes in the bookbags every day. 
Please can you either email Nursery or tell us at drop off if your child is being picked up by someone different than usual. Thank you!
