Super Bears!

Wow - what a great start to a fun week learning about Superheroes!

Thank you for all the fruit and veg donations - we can't wait to turn them into super foods later on in the week!

This week in phonics we re learning - L, LL (jelly belly) and SS (kiss for miss). We will also be learning the new word and, along with recapping the words I have sent home on their book bags - try to look at these at home a few times a week as it really supports what we do in the classroom. Thank you!

 

Don't forget Outdoor Learning tomorrow and Come to school dressed as a superhero on Wednesday, Join us in class from 2pm to spend some time learning with your child.

 

The Halloween Disco is on Thursday so make sure you have got your tickets and dancing shoes at the ready!

Week 6

What a busy week we are having so far! We are being 'Mini Scientists' this week, so lots of exploratory and investigative play is happening in class. We have been busy making different potions using oil, water, herbs, glitter and anything else we can get our hands on, and exploring using magnets - we have found lots of magnetic items around class. One of our favourite activities this week is writing and mark making in 'magic pens' (UV pens and highlighters) which show up beautifully when under a UV torch - I have never seen so many children keen to access the writing table!

 

In outdoor learning this week, we are making mud facers using different natural objects -I can't wait to see the results!

 

In phonics this week, we are focussing on High Frequency Words - these are words which appear often in reading books - some can be blended to be read and others we have to learn as sight words - no, go, to and the for example. I will be sending home a HFW key chain attached to your child's book bag tomorrow for you to work on learning them at home too. The children progress even further when work we do in school is supported and reinforced at home, so thank you for helping us! I am so impressed at how many words they can recall in such a short amount of time - you should be very proud of them all!

 

Next week we are learning about Superheroes! Please bring in a piece of fruit or veg on Monday for your child to turn into super food, and join us in class from 2pm on |Wednesday. Children in EYFS can come to school dressed as a superhero on Wednesday - I can't wait to the see the costumes!

Any questions, please ask.

I have added lots of lovely photos to Tapestry so don't forget to log on - if you have any problems please ask me.

Enjoy your week,

Miss Hatchman x
