Christmas Jumper Day 10th December 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Friday 10th December we are taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

Children will be able to come to school wearing a winter themed jumper. This could be one bought in the shops, or made at home. Children could add some tinsel to a jumper they already have. Some children have even made a spotty t-shirt before.

If children want to take part in Christmas Jumper Day, then please use our Just Giving Page. https://christmas.savethechildren.org.uk/fundraising/cjd210018881

You can donate as little or as much as you like on there. Alternatively, you can send £2 to school Friday 10th December. All money raised will go to Save the Children, making sure every child, no matter where they’re born, has essentials like food and water, healthcare, education, protection and shelter.

Its week 4 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Reception…………………….

This week we have been busy in Maths learning about shapes, circles and triangles in particular. We have learnt that they have properties which identify them, like how many sides and vertices they have. We have also been on a shape hunt outside to find circles and triangles in the environment. This is a fun activity to try at home or in the supermarket too. We have been continuing our learning around the story ‘Supertato’ in literacy, writing list of qualities we would like in our very own superhero sidekicks. We have enjoyed a P4C lesson where we posed the question ‘Do you have to have powers to be a hero?’ We got some very interesting answers like “No because a policeman keeps everyone safe”. This week we also hosted our reading and phonics parent workshop, thank you to everyone who attended and we hope you enjoyed it.

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Reception…………………….

This week in Reception we continued our learning on the topic ‘People who help us’, we have looked at some real life super heroes such as Rosa Parks and Winston Churchill. Our focus book in Literacy has been ‘Supertato’ which is all about a superhero potato who rescues his vegetables friends from the clutches of the evil pea. We have been using the technique of printing in the creative area to make our own supertato. We have built lairs in the construction area for the evil pea and designed our own superhero vegetables in the writing area. We have talked about what superpowers we might like to have and what we would use them for. In Maths we have been learning about the composition of the number 1,2 and 3 we have used different vegetables to represent the different ways you can make 1,2 and 3. We rounded off the week celebrating children in need where we all wore spots and enjoyed some Pudsey themed activities including dancing, colouring and making our own bookmarks.

Its week 2 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Reception…………………….

This week in FS2 we have been learning all about people who help us, this could be firefighters, dentists, bus drivers and postal workers among others. We having been learning what their roles are and how they help us. We have also explored what types of vehicles they have and what equipment they use. In Maths we have been focusing on the number 1, 2 and 3. We have learnt that they can be represented in different ways and compared them to one another using the language more and fewer. This week we also learnt about Remembrance Day and what it represents, we had a 2 minute silence and a special assembly. Next week we continue our theme ‘people who help us’ as we look at real life hero’s and enjoy the story Supertato.
