People who help us – In school

This week we have been:

This week we have been focusing on saying please and thank you. It’s polite to use please when they need help and thank you when something has been done for them. We sang a song to help us remember why we say it, please use this at home!


We have been learning about the people who help us at school. We looked at a non-fiction book which explained all about the jobs in a school. We then added pictures of the adults from our school. We also drew pictures of the people who help us in school. 

In phonics we have started thinking about the sounds that children hear around them inside and outside.

In maths this week we have been counting to 5 using five little ducks. We have also been learning about the number 2.

In RE this week we have been learning about how God loves us and that he is always in out hearts. We hope that you like the necklace and the children understand the reason for it. 

We have also been learning about Autumn this week. We used the autumn table to explore ways we notice autumn outside. We enjoyed making leaf prints, listening to the sounds dried leaves make and singing a song about autumn leaves.

We went to the hall for PE this week! The children had great fun being in ‘Big school’ and using the large space. We played the traffic light game and practised throwing, catching and kicking a ball.

Next week we will be:

  • Learning about people who help us that help us to stay healthy and well. We will be thinking about doctors, nurses, dentists etc.
  • Learning about the number 3.
  • How God feeds many people.
  • Exploring start and stop.
  • Learning how and why we wash our hands.

How you can help at home:

  • Have some time to listen to the world around them, inside and outside. What things can they hear?
  • Practice writing the children’s names. Other than the first letter using lowercase letters please. (This can be done in the green book)
  • Practice writing the numbers 1/2. (This can be done in the green book)
  • Explain to the children about why we say please and thank you and encourage them to say please and thank you as much as possible at home.
  • Explore autumn outside. You can bring in anything you might find outside or draw pictures in your green book.

Messages home:

Please encourage the children to say please and thank you at home it really makes a difference when you do something for the children and they say please and thank you.

We sent home a letter today explaining about how things will work for you and us, please have a read of the letter and come and see us if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support, Mrs Herne.
