In maths, we have been continuing to develop our addition skills using a range of different strategies. We are starting to understand the relationship between addition and subtraction and will be moving onto subtraction next week.
In PE we are continuing with dance and multiskills.
In Art, we are planning and constructing 3D castles in line with our new topic.
For our History topic, we are looking at maps and this week we have been drawing four journey from the school gate to our classrooms using symbols.
In RE we will learn about Jewish celebrations. We have been learning about the celebration of Rosh Hashanah.
In Science, we are learning about materials. This week we continued to explore materials and sorted them into different categories.
To support your child's reading and writing, you could practise the alphabet at home saying both the letter names and the phoneme (sound) that they make, both in and out of order. they also need to learn how to form both the capital letter and the lower case and understand the difference between the two. If you need any help with this, just ask.
Please ensure that if you provide your child with a snack for before an after school club, that it is healthy. We are a healthy school and wish to promote this at all times of the day. Snacks should be raw fruit and vegetables.
Drop off and pick up times safety
Please can we remind you to say your goodbyes at the outside door before the children enter their classroom. At pick up time if your child has left something behind, please wait until all the children have left the room before sending your child back in.
Simba, Narla and Mole
To encourage excellent behaviour, each week, a child who has shown excellent behaviour will have the privilege of taking home our class mascots. If you are given them for the weekend, we would love to know what they get up to with you. You could for example, take a picture/do a drawing/make a comic/write a diary, which we can then display. Enjoy being creative with them!
Please ensure that your child comes to school in the correct school uniform at all times and that it is all clearly named. (There are always mountains of lost property at the end of each term). No jewellery or nail varnish should be worn to school except for possibly a watch and/or stud earrings and it is important that long hair is tied back.
P.E. lessons will be on Wednesdays and Fridays mornings for both Foxes and Moles. The children are expected to keep their labelled P.E. kit (shorts, t-shirt in team colour and plimsolls) in school at all times. Should they have a club after school, we require them to bring a different change of clothes.
