Welcome back, we hope you had a restful break.

Traditiional Tales

This week we have been:

Reading stories about traditional story characters. We read a story called  ‘A Wolf at the door’. The story included the three little pigs, three billy goats gruff, Goldilocks and the three bears, Cinderella, Little red riding hood and Little bo peep. They were all scared of the wolf although they had not seen him they could just hear him! They realised that all the wolf wanted to do was play.

In Phonics this week we have learning the sound ‘f’ – down the flower and draw the leaves.

In maths this week we had lots of fun counting! We counted claps, stamps, jumps, pats and star jumps. We counted to 10, then to 20 and then to 30!! We also started to look at ‘teen’ in teen numbers and ‘ty’ in numbers above 20.

In RE this week we read a story from the bible called ‘The Good Samaritan’. It was a sad story but we learnt that we should always help people if we can, helping people is the right thing to do. Helping others makes them and us feel good inside. 

Next week we will be:

  • Reading ‘Jack and the beanstalk’.
  • Learning the sounds ‘e’ and ‘l’.
  • Exploring measuring.
  • Exploring growing.

How you can help at home:

  • Continue name writing.
  • Continue working on recognising numbers the children can see around them.
  • Counting to thirty, ensuring the children are saying teen/ty correct in the number names. For example, fourteen, twenty. 
  • Share some of the traditional tales from above by reading stories or exploring them on YouTube.

We are all very happy that the weather is starting to get warmer however please do ensure that the children have a coat in school as it can be chilly at times when we go outside.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support, Mrs Herne.
