Weekly Updates and Home Learning

13th September 2019

We have had a very busy week of fabulous learning again and this week we have really enjoyed reading the story ' Dear  Greenpeace ' and we have been learning all about Whales in our ocean. We have also done a fabulous job of writing letters to Mr Dryburgh to convince him that we have seen a whale in our school pond ! We think he believes us too. In Mathematics we are practising our counting up to 100 and beyond and we have been doing some great actions to help us. We have also been understanding place value and doing lots of practical activities. We are also learning about our continents and naming our oceans too. Now that our twitter account is up and running please try to follow us to see what we are getting up to .


Please could we request that you send your child's Forest School clothes in a distinct  plastic carrier bag with their name on it so they can easily recognise it as we need to store them together and then hand them out as efficiently as we can .


We are still waiting for delivery of our new home/school diaries. We will get those out to you as soon as possible.


PE is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please remember to have your kit.


Have a great weekend.

The children have all settled in really well and are already fabulous at knowing the  new routines and have been engaged in some very exciting learning. Every morning we have started off with an energetic phonics session and practised our sounds which the children have really loved. In Maths we have been  busy counting to 100 and understanding place value. We have also been finding out about the amazing time your children have been having in the holidays and the children have done some wonderful writing. Our topic this term is called 'Down To Earth' and we have been learning about all the continents in our World and the children have created some of their very own world maps.
