Just a few reminders
To my lovely parents, just to remind you that BOOK BAGS come in on a Friday and will go home on a Monday.
If your child wants to bring their OWN SNACK in it must be a healthy choice and have their name on it please. School snack is available and payment is via School Gateway.
Children will need a COAT now the weather is changing.
PE days are Wednesday and Friday where the children come to school with their PE kits on.
Half- Term Challenge
Please can your child keep a picture dairy of one of their days in half-term. This gives them something to talk about when we are back in November. If you could email me anything that will help them to discuss it this would be great!
Enjoy your Half-Term! Keep safe and have Fun !
Your child will be coming home with a short report today to let you know how they have settled in this half term. This time in school has been a little stranger and a little different to previous years. The children have been an absolute pleasure to have in the class. They have adapted so well to the routines, especially hand washing! They have enjoyed getting to know me and all the staff in the Reception classes and I am so VERY proud of them all!!
This half term please keep safe !! After half term we will be understanding Remembrance Day and doing a lot of Poppy craft. We will be counting to 20, talking about our half-term and sharing our news with each other. We will be understanding different times of the day and when we do things like brush our teeth, eat our breakfast and go to school.

The children wore Yellow in school on Friday to think about Mental Health Awareness. They made Yellow Emoji badges to represent feelings and used their shape skills and cutting skills to make them. Thank you for your support!!
We will be understanding Harvest and Autumn and exploring lots of natural materials. They will be thinking about what they want to be when they grow up and thinking of all the people that help us! We will be ordering numbers around the classroom and in our creative work too!
Our number of the week is 5, and our letter of the week is d which we will be learning how to form using our best pencil skills.
Enjoy your weekend and thank you so very much for all the food you have donated for Women’s Aid. So very kind of you😊
Week beginning 28/09/2020
This week we have been talking about who lives in our houses. We have also drawn them and written their names in our books too. We have been busy making lots of patterns in our Numeracy books and creating lots of patterns around the classroom too. We have been printing, sticking and colouring to make two and three coloured repeating patterns.
We have been finding out about the Good Samaritan and talking about how we can be kind to each other. In P.E we have been balancing bean bags and enjoying our Yoga sessions too.
We have been using our pencil skills to form the letter 'a' and the number '3'. We have been labelling the parts of the body and drawing around each other. We have been singing lots of number rhymes and action rhymes to help us learn too!
Next week we will be talking about our feelings, exploring 2d shapes, forming the number 4 and the letter s. We will also be creating a Baby Clinic as our Role Play area. I would love some photos of the children when they were babies to display if you could email these to me, it would be GREAT !!!
Have a fantastic weekend !!! Thank you for all your support!
Week beginning 21st September 2020
Class 2 have been very busy again this week. They have been counting Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy and identifying the correct numbers. They have been practising their counting skills around the classroom and have been excited to sing number rhymes.
They have been busy reading the characters names Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy, and practising forming the letter ‘m’ using cursive handwriting. They were fantastic!
This week the children have also been learning lots of welsh and have been enjoying making their faces using a collage technique. We have also been developing our Yoga skills in the classroom and our balancing skills outside too.
Next week our letter is ‘a’ and our number of the week is 3. Maybe you could think of some things that begin with ‘a’ and find things around your home too?
Have a super weekend!

Wow ! Class 2 have had a busy week this week. We have been writing our numbers 1 to 10 and our names. We have been sharing our family photographs and talking about what we like to do. We have been learning all about the number 1 and finding this in our playground.
We have also been recognising the characters Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy in a matching game and will be recognising their names next week too!
In PE we have been doing lots of different jumps and have been learning about how to use the space around us when we move. We even got the parachute out which was lots of fun!
Have a lovely weekend! Maybe you can find things around your home and garden that start with the sound ‘M’ for Monkey?
