Early Years. Autumn 2, Week 4.

We have loved finishing off our owl babies topic. We have done lots of drama on emotions and retelling the story. See the pictures below of us writing our thought bubbles. We have also been counting owls and sorting them. In PE this week we have acted out the story through dance.

Each morning as part of our routine we always start our day with fiddly fingers. These are fine motor skills that get our hands ready for writing.

As always we have had lots of opportunity to play outside. We had another delivery of equipment and enjoyed playing with the hoppers, after a demonstration from Mrs Evans!

Early Years. Autumn 2, Week 3. w/b 16/11/2020

This week we have started our topic of Owl Babies. We have loved learning about Owls and spent some time watching videos and reading Non-Fiction books. Ask your child what their favourite owl fact is. In mathematics Reception have created some owl pictures using circles and triangles. We talked about the shapes that we used using mathematical vocabulary such as edge, and vertice.

We had a delivery this week of new blocks for our big wooden beams. We would like to send a great big thank you to the parents who made these for us, we love them! We created tricky obstacle courses for our friends using the beams, tyres, hoops and other items. We tried to make sure that we used all of the positional language that we know, such as over, under, through, in & out, inbetween etc.

Nursery are still working on phase 1 phonics. This week their focus has been on rhyming words. Rhyming words are tricky but they are learning to spot which words rhyme, and which words don’t.

Even though the temperature has dropped this week we are still learning outdoors. The door to the playground is always open and we can choose to play outside. We like to play on bikes, or make up dances on the stage too. Please make sure that your child has a warm and waterproof winter coat.

Early Years. Autumn 2, Week 1. Week Beginning 09/11/20

We’ve had a very busy week and have enjoyed finishing off our topic about The Gigantic Turnip. Nursery enjoyed dressing up as the characters to act out the story outside, and Reception enjoyed listening to Pie Corbett’s story song, acting out the story as he sang the tune.

Reception have enjoyed learning with Mr Devanney and Mrs Evans. Mr Devanney will be here until February 2021. This week we have been practising writing our phonics sounds. We love learning phonics. Thanks to everyone for completing their first phonics homework on spelling bee. There are new assignments for next week, we hope you enjoy this week’s work.

This week we have been thinking more about festivals. We celebrated Poppy Day so respectfully and had lots to say about the soldiers who helped protect us. On Friday we thought about Diwali, and made lots of rangoli patterns around school.

In maths we have been subitising numbers. To subitise a number means that you can recognise a number of dots/ objects as an amount without having to count them. We learnt to do this with dominoes, we enjoyed playing dominoes on the stage. Can you find dice at home and play a game. Practise rolling the dice and reading the number, without counting the dots.

Even though we have had some chilly days, we always have an outdoor provision available for your children. Learning outdoors is so much fun and some children prefer it this way. This week outside we have played in the water tray, tipping water down drainpipes. We have also practised our scissor skills by chopping up leaves. We always enjoy obstacle courses and are looking forward to next week when some of our very kind Dads have made us some balancing beams.

We have enjoyed Children In Need day, dressing up and being silly with our adults. We had a great big disco at the end of the day and loved dancing with the music. We talked to the children about how everyone isn’t as lucky as us, and explained that our money is going to children who really the help. If you watch any Children in Need this weekend please talk to your child about this great charity, and it’s wonderful work. Thank you for your generous donations.
