Wednesday 13th November

This week we have started to put things back in our conservatory as we now have some flooring! Today we have made some salt dough bread shapes to go into our bakery. The children are very excited to be able to buy their own bread rolls and handle some money from our class bank.

Our T4W story 

Please read with your child at home, it is very repetitive. We will be using this story on a day:day basis:-

Charlie’s Walk

Charlie the chicken went for a walk but a tiger followed him!

First he went across the field but a tiger followed him!

Next he went around the forest but a tiger followed him!

After that he went over the bridge but a tiger followed him!

Then he went past the school but a tiger followed him!

Later on he went through the fence but a tiger followed him!

Finally he went under the gate but a tiger followed him!

In the end, he got back home in time for tea…. but the tiger went home hungry!

Friday 8th November

Thank you to all the lovely parents that were able to come on our walk. The children learnt some new skills, we found out that our village has a house that used to be a car garage and another which used to be a post office.

Wow what a fantastic week we have had. We have designed and made our own bread roll just like the Little Red Hen. We have also performed the LRH story in our Harvest Festival Church Service. Countdown… 1 more week.

Remember:- Class trip on Monday, you all need to bring a pack lunch with a drink and a raincoat please.

Enjoy your weekend and enjoy your delicious bread.

This week we have had 2 birthdays in our class. Imogen and Jenson both turned 5. We made play dough cakes and have done lots of writing. Some children made thank you letters to send in our postbox and we have had lots of birthday cards made. The children are very excited with our school trip coming up.

Friday 27th September

This week the children have designed and made clay pots. The builders completed our new garden today. (Photos will follow). Keep peeled for an invitation to visit our garden.

Friday 20th September

This week the children have been baking to help raise money for the Yr 5/6 school trip. We held a bake sale after school, thank you to Daisy, Starla and Dominic for helping handle the money.

Thursday 12th September

What a busy week! Yesterday we went for a walk around our school grounds and we created our own ‘School Walk’ story. We have been using a bluebot to look at direction. We have learnt how to move it forwards, backwards, left and right. PE has been a super hit. Well done to the children who have already started their home learning and reading at home. It has made me super impressed and proud!!

Yesterday I found a huge marrow in our class gardening patch. As well as other vegetables that we planted back in June time. This has really helped to move children’s learning on for exploring the different vegetables and learning their names.

Next week our EYFS garden will be out of bounds for 2 weeks, the children will still have access to the outdoors using the main playground. It will hopefully be a smooth and successful transformation!! Keep your eyes peeled.

Below I have attached some documents, your child should have taken a copy home. If you have any questions, please ask!!
