This Week

We have been learning all about animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctic. We have been finding out about penguins, polar bears, walruses, seals, foxes and many more.

The children have been discovering, holding, watching, painting, and breaking ice in classrooms. We have been learning about why ice and snow melts and how we would stop it from melting.

Next Week

Topic: Winter

Math: Positional Language

Letters and Sounds: Identify the musical instruments just by listening

We will discover what happens to the weather in winter around the world. We will talk about what you can do in the snow and I’m sure there will be lots of talk about snowmen, Santa Claus and reindeer too!

We will be continuing to use words such as under, over, on top, at the bottom and now also adding in, out and behind to describe the position of different objects.

This Week

This week was all about the jungle. We packed our backpacks with a hat, snacks, binoculars, sun cream and a camera and set off to discover lots of different animals. I wonder what essentials your child wanted to take to the jungle and what animals they saw?

On Sunday there was a big, exciting thunderstorm and downpour. Quite a few of the children have been asking questions about it. What is thunder? What is lightning? What is a storm? The teachers have done their best to answer all their questions!

The children also practiced their cutting skills and it would be great if they continue practising this at home.

Next Week

Topic: Wild Animals

Maths: Exploring patterns and recognising where they come from

Letters and Sounds: Loud and quiet, fast and slow, high and low sounds

Our song for next week is ‘Animal Boogie’ you can also listen to this at home.

We will also look at how different animals move and try to recreate the movements.

Carnival of the Animals

On Thursday 22nd of November we will be celebrating the end of our animal topic with a dress up day. Your child can come to school dressed as any animal. We love to see homemade costumes. We invite the parents to come and take pictures and listen to a quick song we have been learning between 7:45 and 8:00.

We would also ask you to bring some animal themed food for the children to share for their snack. Please coordinate with your class link to ensure a balance of food options will be there for the children. The majority of choices should be healthy such as fruits, vegetables, sandwiches, and savouries. A simple cup cake or sweet treat is nice to finish with but we want to make sure there aren’t too many sugar options. By ensuring a healthy range of foods is available, this means your child will not need to bring their usual snack on the day. Instead we will share food buffet style.

Reminders

As the weather is cooling down just a reminder that children should bring to school a school jacket, jumper or cardigan. If they do not have your child’s size in stock then they should wear a plain navy jumper instead. Please remember to label any jumpers or jackets to help us look after your child’s belongings.

This Week

This week we were singing the nursery rhyme, ‘5 Little Monkeys Swinging Through the Tree’ See if your child can teach you how it goes.

We have also been learning about the features you find on different animals. Have a go at describing an animal for your child to guess. For example, I am thinking of an animal that has a long trunk and stomps, or, has stripes and looks a bit like a horse. What animal am I thinking of?

Next Week

Topic: Wild Animals

Math: Describing a pattern and texture

Letters and Sounds: Following a Rhythm

We will be continuing to follow the children’s lines of inquiry and dive deeper into the topic of animals. We will be investigating habitats, what different animals eat and talk about the texture of different animals.

We will be singing the song ‘Walking in the Jungle’ and thinking of all the things we would need to take if we were going to the jungle. We will also match musical instrument sounds to animals. For example, a drum is an elephant’s stomp, a maraca is a snake slithering on the ground.

Carnival of the Animals

On Thursday 22nd of November we will be celebrating the end of our animal topic with a dress up day. Your child can come to school dressed as any animal. We love to see homemade costumes.
