Friday 10th November

The children have had a great first week back and have really got stuck into our Superhero Challenges. They have all come back with such great attitudes, all rested and ready to learn.

This week our book focus was ‘Room on the Broom’. Some of the activities out in continuous provision this week have been; making potions in the small world area, creating magic wands with repeating patterns, re-enacting the story using props and masks in our puppet theatre, writing our own potions, labelling the characters from the story and using tweezers to find creepy crawlies in a cauldron of rice.

On Friday we all made a potion where we mixed different ingredients together and had a try!

In literacy we have shared our thoughts on whether the witch was cruel or kind in the story, answered questions based on the book and thought of own ingredients to make a potion. We then ‘powered it up’ and thought of adjectives to describe the ingredients.

Today we also held a minute silence for Remembrance Day and watched a little clip about poppies and why we wear them.

In maths this week we have been looking at repeating patterns. We have looked at patterns in the environment and then verbally followed on both coloured and object patterns. We have worked in pairs to finish off the pattern and made our own patterns using coloured pegs and boards.

This week our Learning Super Heros were Oliver and Henry for coming back to school with a great attitude towards learning.

Our attendance this week is: 95%… this is low for our first week back!

Next week our book topic is ‘I Will Ever Never Eat a Tomato!” We will be doing this book for one week and then moving onto Hibernation.

We have started learning our songs for our Nativity. Some children are narrators and some children are acting and everyone will have a part. The Nativity will take place at 2pm and 5pm on Tuesday 12th December and tickets will be on sale soon.

We also have our school fair coming up soon on Friday 8th December.

Important information

Some building work is taking place in the main building over the next few months. Please take extra care coming into and leaving the building. We have spoken to the children about how to be sensible and safe whilst this is happening.

Parents Evening – Thursday 16th November – please book a time slot with us if you haven’t already done so.

Please remember to put your child’s name on all their jumpers and coats as we have a few without names on.


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…Can you make a witch’s potion It can be as nice or as yucky as you like! What did you use to make it? Can you draw a picture and try to write some of the words or first sounds of the words?
