What a wonderful week we have had! Miss Neves and I are really noticing the children’s speaking and listening skills improve day by day which is fantastic! On Monday afternoon we had music with Mrs Mallinson and she too was impressed with the growth in confidence. Only a few weeks ago some of our children were nervous and reluctant to join in with singing and action songs… well not anymore! All of the children were up, singing and dancing with enthusiasm and excitement, it was lovely to see.
Sean is a Concentrating Cooper Crab for... Focusing so carefully during your learning Sean. This week we have watched you concentrate carefully during your activities and carpet time. You have also been full of enthusiasm when taking part in learning challenges, determined to do your best. Well done Sean!
Charlotte is a Concentrating Cooper Crab for ... Concentrating carefully during your learning and really improving your self control. We have already seen a huge growth in your behaviour and confidence Charlotte and we could not be happier. This week you have tried so hard to make sure that you are always following our school rules, we are so impressed! Keep up the great work!
Our Phonic sounds this week are:
This week we have looked at the sounds p, g, c and k. Please practise saying and hearing these sounds at the start, middle and end of words. We have also provided the sound cards to help you to practise forming these letters.
This week we have increased our understanding of the number two and the children have been creating repeating patterns using 2 colours. You could reinforce this understanding at home by creating patterns using actions. For example: 2 claps, 2 nods, 2 claps, 2 nods ...
In RE this week we have been thinking about how much God loves us. We went on a hunt around our school to find really big objects and the children proudly exclaimed that God loves them more than each object they found.
Next week we will start thinking about the Harvest celebration and how we are going to help families who need our help. Reception and Nursery are collecting toiletries for a local food bank. Please donate however many items you can. Our children always want to help make the world a fairer place. (Some item ideas: deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap etc)
Physical skill of the week:
Can your child do 3 jumps forwards? Are their feet together as though they have superglue in between them? Are they able to do 3 jumps backwards? Do they remember our special jumping checklist: Feet together, squishy knees, swinging arms?” Are they able to increase the amount of jumps they can do? How about changing the type of jump, i.e. jumps for distance or jumps for height?
We hope that you all have a wonderful weekend together as a family.
Miss Bassett, Miss Neves and Mrs Malley
