Another fun week of learning in Picasso class. The children have continued their work on Homes, looking at different homes around the world and using Google Earth to find their own homes. Reading books were changed on Thursday and will be taken out of bags on a Monday for a three day quarantine, before we send them home again. We are still awaiting our new reading diaries, which you will be able to comment in about your child's home-learning. The children have had an amazing time using the apparatus in PE and today they enjoyed their first visit to the Forest School. In phonics we have been looking at the letters, 's,a,t,p,' using the Actiphons characters. More information on Actiphons can be found on their website via the link in the phonics section on our class page.
Next week we are continuing with our learning on Homes, looking at animal habitats, with a specific focus on woodland animals. In support of this we would love it if you could go on an autumn walk over the next few weeks with your child and look for any woodland animals and collect some autumn treasure, such as interesting leaves, acorns, conkers etc. Please post any pictures onto Tapestry and we can look at them together as a class. If you could bring any 'autumn treasure' into school for us to use in our creative and small world areas that would be fantastic.
Have a lovely weekend.

The children have had a very industrious week, settling into their class routines and making new friends. It has been lovely getting to know them all and we look forward to developing a strong relationship with you and your child over the year. Please read the email sent home today as this contains lots of important information.
This week children have been introduced to Actiphons (our phonics programme). We have started looking at letters from the Phase 2 phonics programme, initially focussing on s, a, t, i, p, n. More information on Actiphons can be found under the phonics section of our class webpage.
Children have been introduced to our topic for this term 'My World, My Home' by making their own homes and learning about different types of homes and habitats.

What a fantastic first week we have had! We have thoroughly enjoyed meeting our new friends in Picasso class and can't wait to begin our learning journey together next week. The children have settled in really well and are getting used to our class routines.
Please remember for next week:
Your child needs to have a water bottle with WATER only, school bag, coat and a pair of wellies to keep in school for outdoor activities and learning. Please return any collection authorisation forms and Tapestry consent forms as soon as possible.
Have a fabulous weekend and we look forward to seeing you all at 9.05am on Monday. Picasso class finish school at 3.20pm.
