People who help us

This week we have been:

Learning about the post service. We have been reading and watching Postman Pat and thinking about what he does. We have been writing our own letters and posting them in the post box. We will be reviewing this at Christmas when thinking about delivering parcels. 

In phonics this week we have had lots of fun exploring the sounds we can make using our bodies. As the children if they can sing ‘Noisy Neighbours’ and ‘New places’.

In math’s this week we have been learning about 2D shapes and looking at simple properties of each shape. We have had fun drawing our own 2D shapes using stencils and watching a video that had 2D and 3D shapes. 

In science this week we have been exploring long and short. We watched Kit and Pup and had a great time using long and short in the classroom. We have been measuring spaghetti, building long and short train tracks and making long and short snacks with the playdough. 


In RE this week we have been learning about Diwali. We watched the story about Rama and Sita and used the puppets to tell our own story. We have also been making diva lamps which we will be finishing next week. 


We also took part in our remembrance assembly, we did a 2 minute silence and added our cross to Flounders fields. 

Next week we will be:

  • Learning about the fire service.
  • Exploring height and combining numbers by counting legs.
  • Learning about Holy Communion and Holy bread.
  • Exploring over, under, long and short.
