Welcome to Red Class!

Week 8-

This week we have been finding out all about hedgehogs. In Phonics we have learnt the sounds;

g, o, c, k

We have been making simple 3 letter words with the letters we know so far. Please practise at home too!

Weeks 6 and 7- 

We have been learning about our families and making friends. We have enjoyed phonics because we have now learned 8 sounds! 

Please practise these at home;

s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d

We have been making  words with the sounds like; 

sat, pin, pat, mad, tin, sit, pit

In maths we have been saying words to describe position such as 'under, over, behind, above, beside, next to, in front.'

Here are some pictures of us having fun learning;

Weeks 4 and 5- 

We have been reading We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. We joined in with the repeated refrains and the used small world play to act out the story! We had some scary bears but decided he may just need a friend as he looked so sad at the end of the story.

We have been finding out all about each other by joining in with circle times, learning names and talking about what we like doing. We also had our first assembly with Mr Ruck, which was great. At the moment we are doing lots of counting in Maths and in Literacy we are listening for the first sound in words. 

The children have had lots of fun in the Resource area and in the classroom. This week we are going on a nature walk to find natural objects. 

Here are some pictures; 

Thursday 19th September

What a fun day of learning we have had! Whilst we are still only half the class, it was the perfect time to try out some yoga on the farm. The children talked about keeping our minds healthy and being relaxed whilst making lots of different body shapes. We used CosmicKids on you tube. 

We are very excited to be starting a new year with your children. During the Induction period we get to know them, play games together, explore the school and introduce the Golden Rules. It's been a great first two weeks with lots of playing an learning taking place. Our topic is All About Me, where the children find out about each other, learn names and talk about their families. 

In Literacy we are looking at words which rhyme and in Maths we are focusing on counting using 1-1 correspondence.
