Next Week

Topic: On the Farm

Math: Accurately counting actions e.g. claps, jumps, steps.

Letters and Sounds: Environmental sounds: Recognising noises you hear on the farm

 

Look what fun all the classes have been having this week learning about the farm.

Some classes have been focusing on the animals you find on a farm. The other classes have been focusing on plants, crops and what grows on a farm. 

We will be continuing to work on careful counting. We will be trying to count actions as well as objects and remembering to stop when we have reached the correct amount. It would help if at home you count as you walk up the stairs, or how many segments there are in their orange etc.

We will be moving onto listening to sounds around the farm that not only the animals make but also the tractor, the gate, the windmill etc.

Sickness

As you know it’s this time of year when all the illnesses surface as the weather changes. We would just like to remind if your child has a fever in the morning, please do not give them medication and send them to school. This is precisely when they are most infectious and, as a result, are very likely to spread the illness to other children and staff. The Panadol does NOT stop the infection.

Please see below a friendly reminder of our school guidelines which state that you should not send your child to school if they have the following:

  1. Fever (37.5 and above)
  2. Vomiting
  3. Diarrhoea
  4. A Sore Throat
  5. Bad severe cold with a very runny nose or bad cough, especially if it has kept the child awake at night.
  6. Skin rash

Students with the symptoms listed above need to stay home for 24 hours after the symptoms subsist. If these symptoms remain for longer than a day, contact your doctor to see if your child needs to be evaluated.

With these guidelines, we mean to serve the best interests of all the children and staff in our school.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Infant School Nurse.

Reception Bulletin w/c 21st Oct

Reception

For the week commencing Sunday, 21st October


literacy

In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear and say two more letter sounds (g) and (o).

We will also be practising blending the sounds we have learned to date: s a t p i n m d g o.

Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with g and o (it is the o sound as in octopus or orange not owl o). If your child can find a small object to contribute please make sure it is labelled with their name and class before they bring it to school. That way each object will be returned to its rightful owner at the end of the week.

In class we will be focusing on the words on and off. Encouraging your child to practise taking their cardigan/jumper off and on independently would really help with one planned classroom activity!

We will also be learning the tricky words I and go. Tricky words are words which would not usually be created by blending the individual letter sounds together. Searching for these words in the children’s own story books is an excellent way of practising recognition.

Thank you for the kind donation of old magazines last week, they were much appreciated.


maths

In Maths this week we are learning about repeating patterns involving 2 or more variables (different things) and even some doubles. There is some super additional practice in the shapes pattern game at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/shape-patterns.


topic

This week each Reception class will be experimenting with colour and texture.


reminders

Single Use Plastics

Some children are bringing a single use plastic bottle of water to school every day.  We encourage the children to think about looking after our world (the environment) so can we please ask that you invest in a reusable metal water bottle (if you have been providing single use plastic bottles) and clearly label it with your child’s name and class instead.

Cardigans & Jumpers

Some children are beginning to find the classroom ac units a little cool now that the weather is becoming more pleasant.  It is not possible to make the temperature suit everyone so if your child is complaining of the being cold in the classroom please can you send a school uniform jumper or cardigan with them to school each day. As jumpers and cardigans are removed and put back on over the course of a school day it is particularly important that they are labelled with your child’s name and class.

Year 1 Bulletin

For the week commencing Sunday, 21st October


literacy

This week in Literacy we will be looking at instructions. We will explore the importance of instructions by playing a variety of games, and explore the use of time connectives e.g. first, next, then and bossy verbs e.g. mix, wash, stir when writing them. We will end the week by watching the story of ‘Meg and Mog – Owl’s Birthday’ and creating our own instructions for making a birthday cake!

Watch the story of Owl’s Birthday here:

Can your child remember in what order the ingredients went into the mixture?


maths

This week in Maths we will be investigating subtraction. We will explore the various ways of completing subtraction problems using cubes and number lines. We will also begin to learn the vocabulary of subtraction, e.g. finding the difference, and begin to understand the relationship between addition and subtraction problems.  


topic

This week in Topic we will be learning all about the weather! We will explore a variety of different weather and watch some weather reports to help us with this. We will also investigate the different seasons, and explore the ways the weathers and days change from Summer to Winter.

Watch this for a preview of the Seasons Song!


reminders

Please remember to bring a water bottle and hat to school everyday.

End of day

As you’re already aware, the corridors and walkways are very busy at pick-up time. At the end of the day teachers escort children to a number of different end-of-day locations, and it can be difficult to safely navigate large groups through the corridors at this time. With this in mind, please ensure that when you have collected your child, you exit the building as soon as possible. If your child has Academies, or another engagement on school premises later in the afternoon, please make your way to the cafeteria to wait.  Thank you for your support in this matter.

The Year 1 workshop will be held in Year 1 classrooms on Wednesday 24th October at 1:15.

Year 2 Bulletin w/c 21st Oct

Year 2 Bulletin

For the week commencing Sunday, 21st October


literacy

The children will continue to learn about following and writing instructions and what the ‘Steps to Success’ for writing good instructions are.

This includes

  • time conjunctions e.g. first, next, after that
  • verbs e.g. put, mix, stir, get
  • adverbs e.g. quickly, carefully, sensibly
  • correct order
  • present tense

Each class will make hummus. They’ll discuss what ingredients are needed, what equipment will be used and the exact steps needs to make it. The children will then work in groups to create their instructions for how to make hummus, making sure they are following the ‘Steps to Success’. This will lead into them presenting their instructions as a cooking show, to the rest of their class.


maths

The children will begin to add 2 two-digit numbers, crossing the tens. For example 64 + 17. Again this will involve partitioning the numbers into FAMILIES of TENS and ONES. The children will use the number 10 as our special number to exchange the ONES to TENS.

We will then move onto subtraction. This will involve the inverse of addition. The children will now need to exchange the TENS into ONES so that they can subtract numbers. For example 22-7=

Children will use the 10 as our special number by subtracting 2 to make 20 and then take away 5 to get to their answer.

This can also be shown on a blank number line as

The children will also enjoy a carousel of activities all about different jobs. At the end of the day the children will write a job application saying which job they like and why they think they would be best suited for that position.

As part of the day the children are welcome to come to school dressed in their smart clothes ready for a job interview.

Nursery

For the week commencing Sunday, 14th October

Next Week

Topic: On the Farm

Math: Accurately counting actions e.g. claps, jumps, steps.

Letters and Sounds: Environmental sounds: Recognising noises you hear on the farm

Next week we will be discovering what a farm is. We will be finding out what a farm looks like and which animals live there. We will be learning about farmers and what their job is. Our stories we like to read during this topic are; Farmyard Hullabaloo, What the Ladybird Heard, Apple Tree Farm, Muddled Up Farm, Farmer Duck, The Scarecrow’s Wedding and A Squash and a Squeeze. As always if you have any books at home about the farm we would love to read them at school.

We are learning to count not only objects but also actions. We will be playing ‘What’s the Time Mr Wolf’ to help us carefully count out our steps. We will also be counting as we march, click, hop etc.  I wonder if you can think of some games to play at home to also practise this.

We will be listening to sounds we find on the farm and just by listening we will see if we can identify what made that sound. Please use this link so you can try this at home:

Talking About our Weekends

We are working on talking in the past tense so on Sunday morning we will be asking the children what they got up to at the weekend. It would be really helpful for the children if you could talk through this with them before they come to school. This helps refresh their memories.

Playing After School

Please note that once our school day has finished the school playgrounds are out of action for Nursery free play. The other older children use these areas for their outdoor learning environment as well as planned teaching and learning activities. Thank you for your cooperation.

In Maths this week we are learning the correct mathematical names for 2D shapes and how to use other related vocabulary such as sides and corners. By the end of the week we will be having creative fun investigating which 2D shapes tessellate.

If your child needs to revise the names of the basic 2D shapes they can play shape sorting at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/early-years/shape-monsters.

The teachers would appreciate it if you could e-mail them a photograph of your child with a 2D shape they have found in their own environment. This will be used in slide show to support the class learning about 2D shapes.


topic

This week each Reception class will be investigating the purpose of particular colours in our environment eg why school buses are yellow or why polar bears have white fur. On Thursday we will be learning about why the Think Pink charity uses the colour pink.
