Headteacher’s News – 13th Sept

Posted on Updated on

Dear Parents,

Many thanks to all parents who attended the Welcome Talks on Monday evening. We were delighted with the turn out and I hope they gave you some valuable insight into your children’s learning.

It has been a week of healthy living in the Infant School and the array of healthy items in lunch boxes was impressive. Children in Year 2 enjoyed baking amazingly healthy flapjacks and produced some magnificent writing about the whole process.

All children in Year 1 and Year 2 participated in additional group work out sessions courtesy of ‘The Body Coach’. Children in Year 1 and Year 2 also had their first assemblies of the year this morning and they taught me a lot about how valuable all members of our school community are – the children, parents, teachers, assistants, administrators, nurses, cleaners and security guards. We are determined to ‘look after one another’ and help one another out.

We launched the new award in Infants – “Champion of the Week”.

The name of the award was chosen by children in Year 2. The certificate can be awarded for being kind, doing your best, getting better at a particular subject or demonstrating a value such as resilience, honesty, bravery or empathy.

Congratulations to our first Champions of the Week.

Nursery Bulletin w/c 16th Sept

Posted on Updated on

Nursery

For week commencing Sunday, 16th September

Next Week

Our focus next week will be emotions. Identifying emotions through pictures and facial expressions. We will then talk about what makes us feel those different feelings. We will be reading different stories that help us explore and explain emotions. If you have any books at home around this topic we always enjoy the children sharing their own stories.

Spare Clothes

Please provide a spare pair of clothes that will stay inside your child’s cubby. Please label these clothes with your child’s name and class. We will then be able to change your child if they are wet.

No Peeping

We please ask you to resist the urge to gaze through the windows. This distracts the children at a time when they need to focus on their teacher’s instruction.  We would also like to add that photographing and videoing the children through the windows is not allowed. Thank you for your understanding!

Reception

For week commencing Sunday, 16th September

literacy
In literacy this we week we are continuing to practise reading our names in many different fonts and sizes. We are also practising writing our names in pencil and on whiteboards focusing on forming the letters in our names correctly. This is very important as we should be labelling our own work whenever we use a piece of paper or make a model.

Have a look at this video if you want to check or show the formation of a particular letter.


maths
In Maths we are continuing to build a firm understanding and recall of numbers to 10, and recording these numbers in lots of different ways. An episode of Numbertime which reinforces the concept of number can be found at ▶ 13:03


topic
In our topic work we will be considering ways of helping our friends feel happy at school. We will also be continuing to learn the rules and routines of our new classes and the BSB in general.

reminders

Labelling all belongings which come to school with your child’s name and class will ensure that if they are misplaced they will traced quite quickly.

Book Bags will be needed next week as the children start to visit the Infant Library and borrow a book to take home. If you have been unable to purchase a BSB bookbag until the new order arrives in the BSB Uniform Shop please send in any appropriate bag to carry the library book in for the moment.

Year 1 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 16th September

literacy

In Literacy the children will be asked to draw a picture of their favourite place. This may be something you discuss at home, so that your child has an idea prior to the lesson. The children will then learn about labels and the use of adjectives, so that they can describe their favourite place.


maths

This week in Maths the children will continue to consolidate their knowledge of numbers 1-10 and when ready 10-20. The children will focus on the correct formation when writing the numbers and being able to continue a sequence adding and subtracting 1 every time. Once mastered the children will begin to continue a sequence counting forwards and backwards in 2’s.


topic

This week we will begin our Topic of Me, Myself and I. We will discuss ourselves, our families and our favourite things to do, as well as talking about self-confidence and how to be proud of our diversity and achievements.

On Sunday we would like it if all children could come to school with a special item from home that they can discuss with their class. We also invite children to attend school wearing an outfit that they may wear to a celebratory occasion, or special dinner with family.


reminders

  • Please remember to bring a water bottle and hat to school everyday.
  • Next week is a 3-day week (Sunday-Tuesday) due to the Ashoora holiday.
