People who help us – In school

This week we have been:

Learning about all the adults that help us in our school. We have learnt their names and found out what they do. We have been drawing pictures and writing their names! We have also been learning how to draw lines!!

In maths this week we have been learning how to count to 10, we have also been counting objects and people . We have enjoyed learning about the number 5 and practising how to write it. Please use this link to watch the video.


This week we have been celebrating Diwali. We watched a video called ‘Rama and Sita’. We know that Diwali is called the festival of lights. We made our own divas using clay and paint and our teachers gave us a candle to put inside. Please use this link to watch the video.


We have also had lots of fun exploring autumn. We have been looking at the colours of the leaves during autumn time. We noticed the different colours in our non-fiction books, we looked at leaves from outside, we learnt a song called autumn leaves and we also made our own autumn leaf pictures using stamps and paint.

We have also been focusing on saying please and thank you! We watched a video and sang a song to remind us its kind and polite to say please and thank you. Please use this link to watch the video.


Next week we will be:

  • Learning about people who help us in a supermarket.
  • Learning the number 6 and counting using 5 current buns.
  • Learning about remembrance day.
  • Exploring floating and sinking.

How you can help at home:

  • Practice writing your child’s name, using the correct formation – please come and speak to a member of staff if your not sure.
  • Practice writing numbers to 5.
  • Go on a leaf hunt and bring in them in for us to share together, we are looking for as many colours as possible.

Messages home:

  • Please encourage the children to stick, draw or paint something in their green books. It really makes a big difference!
  • Just a small reminder about reading books. You can bring them in as often as you like, please hand them to Mrs Bruno in the morning and we will change them for you.

Thank you for your support, Mrs Herne.

Mrs Lowe and Mrs Bruno
