Autumn Term:

Routine letter

Roll up Roll up!

W/C: 16th September

We listened to 'Sylvia and Bird' Catherine Rayner, hunting for our word of the week 'swooped'. When we heard it the children shouted out "swooped" and then moved their arms into a swooping motion. Sylvia and Bird are friends that work together. The children were then challenged to work with a friend to make one picture with 20 lolly sticks. It is sometimes hard to compromise but the children did well and learnt to work with someone new. 

   

We talked this week about how it will look if we are ready for listening. This is our quality listening audience. The children decided that they need to use their eyes to look, ears to listen, brain to think and to sit still. Next week we will be talking about being respectful to people at school and all our toys and equipment.

We have continued to count with care; objects and actions.

The children got into their PE kits on Thursday and moved forwards and backwards in a variety of ways to music. 

The children had the new experience of staying to lunch. They dealt with this admirably and tried different foods. The chicken curry was very tasty. We are all looking forward to staying all day next week.

W/C: 9th September

This week the children in Opal class took part in the skipping workshop. They learnt how to jump over the rope when it was a 'snake' and then jump while the rope was turned for them. They were fantastic, listening carefully and bouncing lots.

We have continued to count with care while using the picture book 'Abigail' by Catherine Rayner. We have counted giraffes, ladybird spots and stars. When counting carefully we have to say the number names in order and then if we can, touch the item. We will be using books by this author over this term. 

Everyone is looking forward to meeting the other half of the class and staying to lunch next week. 

 

 W/C: 3rd  September

The children have settled very well into Opal class . They have made new friends, learnt how to share the toys and have started to learn new rhymes and songs. We have been counting carefully and blending sounds to work hear the word e.g. "touch your ch-i-n".

Next week the children will need to have PE kits in school as we are taking part in the skipping workshop. It will also be useful to have a thin coat in school while the weather is changeable, as we go out to play even if it is drizzling.
