If we live by truth and in love, we shall grow in Christ

Little Miss Muffet and Little Jack Horner

Welcome back to our class blog.

We have come to the end of our ‘Humpty and Friends’ topic - our themes have been ‘Spiders’ and ‘Food’.

Last week our theme was ‘Spiders’. We read and learned the rhyme ‘Little Miss Muffet’. In Literacy we learned the rhyme and acted it out in the role play area. The children also had the chance to sequence the rhyme and to write CVC words.

This week our theme has been ‘Food’. We have been reading and learning the rhyme ‘Little Jack Horner’. We have talked about different rhymes that are about food.

In Literacy the children have sequenced the rhyme and continued to practise writing CVC words as well as their names.

In Maths we have been learning about ‘comparing measures’ and the associated vocabulary. We have been focussing on heavy, light, tallest, shortest etc.

In RE we have started a new topic: ‘Welcome’. The children have explored what ‘welcome’ means. They have made cards for friends and a poster for our classroom. This week the children enjoyed sharing baptism photos and other photos of family celebrations. They talked about being baptised and being welcomed into God’s family. Some children acted out a baptism in the role play area.

During October we will be touching on Black History Month and its meaning using books, songs, music etc. This will be taught using age appropriate resources.

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.

A gentle reminder to please label everything clearly.

This week we are sending home a few extras with the children. There will be an Art competition activity, a word trail activity that is being run by the PTA and some information about phonics.

The information about phonics is for you to keep and refer to with the children at home - please don’t send it back in.

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

We wish you a happy and restful half term.
