This week we started our topic book ‘The Naughty Bus’. Over the weekend we were left a present, so on Monday we passed it around and had a guess what it was. There were some great guesses. We’ve been doing observational drawings of transport, role playing using a bus and being a driver, writing our own bus tickets, creating signs and of course, singing ‘The Wheels on the Bus”.

In Spark your Speech this week we went on a bus ride… Our aim was to say who and where we would be going on our bus. In small groups we drew pictures onto double decker busses of ourselves and the person we were travelling with. We then shared it with the class modelling good sentence structure.

This week in maths we have been using positional language. We worked in pairs to give instructions to place a teddy in various spots around the classroom.

Thank you for your support with home learning. It’s fantastic to see so many reading books being changed weekly and home learning challenges being completed. Please don’t forget to sign the reading log, even if you initial it, this way we know you’ve read the book and can change it.

Some people have mentioned that they struggled to log into ActiveLearn. I have brought this up with our IT support and they have mentioned that it could be down to the security settings and allowing popups.

Just a reminder that in Early Years we do have a lot of messy and sensory play as this helps children to explore and learn. Although we provide aprons and remind the children to wear them, on occasions they may come home messy (it means they’ve had a great day). So please be mindful if you are buying any new uniform or coats. The weather is getting colder and we do head outdoors in all-weather so please ensure your child has a winter coat with them, preferably with a hood.

We are running very short on spare knickers and socks/tights so if you have any spare at home please could you kindly donate them. Thank you in advance.

This week our Learning Super Hero went to Ethan T, for being positive towards learning and trying new things with such enthusiasm.

Our attendance this week is: 91.7%. Sadly we have yet to win the Early Years Attendance Trophy. As a school we aim for 97% so we’re quite far off.

Important information

Please remember to put your childs name in all their jumpers and coats as we have started to gather a few that have no names on.

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter Hedgehogs_MRPA.

We kindly ask you for a donation towards the extra snack we have available, this is payable via Parentpay.  Thank you in advance for your support.

Home Learning

Each week on a Friday we send home a blue Home Learning Journal. This will contain an activity to complete at home over the weekend or in the week (please try to use a page a week), but the books must be back in school by Thursday so we can get them ready again. Please encourage where possible your child to show their independence. We share the books with the class and the children will receive a Dojo for their learning.

This week… We have been reading a story called ‘The Naughty Bus’. Could you have a look out for different types of transports or different vehicles? You could even go for a trip on a bus or a tram. Can you spot the numbers or letters on the front? Take a picture or draw a picture of what you’ve seen.

Have a lovely weekend, see you on Monday,

Mrs Frost and Mrs Higginbotham
