Please check your child’s red folder every day for homework activities and letters. School information will be available via the school App unless you have opted for paper copies. Class information will be sent in diaries or red folders.
The children continue to reinforce initial sounds and are being introduced to 2 letter sounds eg: ie, oa. Please continue to use your phonics pack at home to encourage your child to make and read words. The children are being encouraged to use their knowledge of phonics to write words, sentences and stories. Remember these will often be written the way they sound!!
The children are developing skills during play. These include problem solving, resilience, teamwork, sharing, planning, motor control and many more.
Numeracy and Mathematics :
Children are enjoying learning about numeracy through active play.
We have all been learning how to add, while developing an understanding of patterns and relationships within numbers. We have been working hard at school and home to remember our number stories to 10.
There have been lots of opportunities to explore measuring length, weight and capacity.
Health and Wellbeing :
We are continuing our health and wellbeing lessons using the PATHS programme. The children are very good at talking about their feelings and understanding that all feelings are ok.
New Dojo points have been added for ‘Work it Out’ and ‘Resilience’ and will be awarded when observed.
During PE lessons with Mr Martindale we will be concentrating on gymnastic skills and the children will have lots of opportunities to use the apparatus equipment.
Broad General Education :
The children performed their Scots verse brilliantly at our annual Scots assembly. Thank you for helping with this at home.
We plan topics responding to the interests of the children. Recently we have been exploring and investigating; Wild Animals, Maps, Katie Morag and Islands.
How Can You Help at Home? :
Please make sure you name all your child’s belongings and check their red folder daily for homework or letters. Read with / to your child each day, whether its a school reading book, a library book, a bedtime story or simply let your child use their imagination and retell the story from a picture book. Continue to reinforce correct letter and number formation. If you would like extra resources for this please let me know. Thanks.
