A Message from the Class Teacher, Mrs Frost

 

Welcome back to Term 2. We hope you enjoyed the break and did lots of wonderful things.

We continue to have Mrs Cassidy working with us on Monday, along with Andy Booker teaching P.E. Mrs Smart works with us on Tuesday and  Mrs Willmott, Lucy’s mum, teaches us music on Wednesday afternoon.

 

Our topic this term is “Journeys into the Imagination and Celebrations.”

 We will be learning about Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas and exploring how we celebrate these times. We will be reading magical stories ;  Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo, Stick Man, We’re going on a Bear Hunt, The Snowman and A letter to Father Christmas to name but a few!  

 

In Literacy we will be sharing stories, learning nursery rhymes and developing vocabulary through role play and discussion related to our reading.

 We will be teaching phonics using the DfES Letters and Sounds programme

The sounds we are revising from last term are: s,a,t,p, i,n,m,d ,g,o,c,k

The sounds we will be learning this term are: , e,u,r,l, h,bf,ff,ll, j,v,w,x, y,z,zz,qu, and the digraphs sh,ch,th,ng,

We will be developing the children’s skills in writing these sounds and segmenting them for spelling / blending for reading. If you would like a copy of the letter formation we use or further help in the pronunciation or associated actions, please ask any of us.

We will continue to send story/reading books home for you to share with your child which can be changed daily or whenever your child would like a different one. Please write in their reading record when your child would like to have a new book.

 

In Numeracy we will be exploring the number system through practical activities, focused on more/less, addition, subtraction and problem solving. We will continue to develop work on patterns, size ordering and 2D shapes, again encouraging the children to solve simple problems.

 

Monday is P.E. day and the children may come to school in their PE kits. Please ensure everything is clearly labelled with your child’s name, especially shoes/trainers/plimsolls.  

 

 The Nativity: this term sees our first performance to you all so we will be learning songs, dances and acting out a traditional Nativity for you in December.

 

Home School Communication:

 Please communicate achievements/exciting events/information through our Home School books as they are checked daily

 

As always, please feel free to come and talk to any of the EYFS staff if you have any concerns, comments, questions or just to share good news!
