Animal Crackers

Welcome back to our class blog.

It has been another busy two weeks! During both weeks we have continued exploring ‘Animal Crackers’. Last week we explored small animals and this week has been about farm animals.

In Literacy last week the children heard the story of 'The very hungry caterpillar' and this week we have read 'Farmer Duck'. We have used our phonics to practise our sentence writing in order to describe something from the stories.

In Phonics we have been busy practising reading and writing words that we have seen before. We have been concentrating on our handwriting and letter formation.

In Maths we have been consolidating our knowledge of ten and some more, and then moved on to doubling. The children have started to establish that doubling is when we add two equal amounts together.

Last week we celebrated the King's Coronation in school - lots of fun was had in Reception class and we finished off with a lovely tea party. Thank you very much to all of the parent helpers!

Please continue to read with your children regularly at home and sign and date their reading records. Just to remind you that book bags need to be in school every day please. Please try to encourage children to keep all books in the book bags, this is particularly important for our weekly trips to the school library.

A gentle reminder to please label everything clearly and children should bring a named water bottle each day.

Please encourage the children to put their homework book in the box (by Wednesday) once they have done their homework. Please complete the homework in the books as much as possible.

Please check the forest school list each week and ensure your child is ready for their session on the day, thank you.

As of next week, the 15th May please be prepared to send the children straight into class and we will take lunch orders once they are in. This is to prepare them for the transition to Year 1. Thank you for your support with this.

Thank you for your continued support with your children’s learning.

We wish you a happy and restful weekend!
