24th September 2021

Well we cannot believe we have finished a whole week of full days in school! We are all pretty tired (I think that goes for Mrs Hounsell and Miss Adamson too!) but we have had THE BEST time!

We have been exploring more and more in our classroom and have been getting to grips with school routines and expectations.

We love the outdoor area and have made some amazing dens.

We started our phonics journey this week – in our book bags will be a letters and sounds books, we can show off all our new skills! We looked at the phonemes s,a,t and p as initial sounds, we played different games and moved around to form the letters.

We stayed for lunch this week – how yummy! We are making our own choices in the mornings and trying new food. We loved our turn on the Pirate ship and have been so grown up sharing the playground and play-pod with the older boys and girls from our school.

Miss Cunningham has been trying to catch us out with our number skills this week – no chance! We have had lots of fun showing her what we know.

We started PE with Montague Academy this week, we loved running around and moving in different ways in the hall. We will be developing our independence getting dressed over the next few weeks – could we please practise this at home to help?

Next week we will be SO busy again, more sounds to learn and areas to explore! We can hardly wait!

A few notes from our teachers…

Please look at the letters and sounds book with your child over the weekend and next week – repetition is key when learning phonics.

Please continue to read with your little one at home, these wordless books are invaluable for early comprehension skills. We will begin reading 1:1 with children next week in the classroom too.

Please make sure all jumpers and cardigans are named so we can make sure they come home with the right child.

We will begin Forest School next week so if wellies aren’t already in school please can they be next week.

As always, any questions please come and see a member of the team!

Have a lovely and restful weekend.
