People who help us – In our school

This week we have been:

Learning about all the adults that help us in our school. We looked at Mrs Baron, Mrs Mantilas, Mrs Adrien, our teachers, the office staff, the cleaners, Mr Rigby and Mr Stavrou and the lunchtime staff. We have been leaning about the jobs they do and how important everyone is to us. We read a story called ‘Career day’ and had a discussion about wat we would like to be when we are older.

In phonics this week we have moved on to making sounds with instruments. We learnt that we need to make sure we follow instructions and listen to the others around us.

In maths this week we have been using the sorting hats to order numbers to 10. We also wrote our own numbers and put them into our head bands.

In RE we have been learning about Gods house, the church. We watched a video and looked at what is inside a Greek Orthodox church. We also explored a church that Mrs Herne made and had a closer look at what we would find when we go to church. We also celebrated the Archbishops 90th birthday, we lit the birthday cake, sang him happy birthday and sent a happy birthday message.

We have been looking a lot closer at the changes we can see around us when we are outside. This season is called ‘Autumn’ and we found lots of leaves in our outside area. We decided to paint them and see what happens when you print them on paper. We also painted an autumn tree using our fingers, learnt a song called ‘Autumn Leaves’ and enjoyed dancing to it during our PE session.

Next week we will be:

  • Learning about people who us in a shop.
  • Making sets of objects and counting how many there are altogether.
  • Learning about Diwali and Remembrance day.
  • Exploring floating and sinking.

How you can help at home:

  • Explore Autumn at home and talk about the changes you can see around you.
  • Continue with name writing and counting activities.
  • Please continue recording your learning in your home learning books.

As the weather is getting colder we are encouraging the children to wear hats and scarves when they are outside. We have a nursery box of hats and scarves that the children will use as it makes it easier when the children want to go outside. If the children wear their own hat and scarf coming to and from school please keep these in the children’s book bags.

Thank you for your support, Mrs Herne.

Mrs Lowe and Mrs Bruno.
