We Are Learning About...
Its good being me!
within this theme we will be exploring what makes us unique. We will look closely at who is in our own family and discover each others. We will explore our homes, the certain festivals we celebrate, and our environment around us.
We will be exploring stories and texts such as:
Giraffes Can't Dance,
We're going on a Bear Hunt,
Percy the Park Keeper and many more.
This week we have been working hard in our Mastering Number sessions. We have focussed on our subitizing skills. We don't need to count the amount, we just know it!
10.11.23 - This week we would like you to focus on number formation 1-5.
Here are some rhymes to help with number formation!
17.11.23 - Children In Need. Non uniform or something spotty.
13.11.23 - Odd Socks day. Children to wear odd socks with uniform.
P.E is every Thursday please send your child to school wearing their school PE kit.
Our Forest School sessions are every Wednesday. Children can come to school wearing leggings or tracksuit bottoms along with their school top and jumper. Children will need a weather proof coat with wellies in a bag. If it is sunny please make sure you send a sunhat and a named bottle of sun cream. Please ensure ALL BELONGINGS ARE NAMED.
