The children in Peppard class made us very proud on Wednesday when they sang “He’s got the whole world in his hands”. They were beautifully behaved and extremely respectful at our Remembrance Service.
We took full advantage of the cold weather at the beginning of the week. We found some ice in our water tray. We decided to try an experiment.
We put some of the ice in a glass and left it outside, and we put some of the ice in a glass and left it inside. We all predicted what would happen to the ice by lunch time, which was an hour later. Most of the children thought it would melt, and they explained what melting was and how it happens.
They predicted that the ice in the classroom would melt more quickly and they were correct.
We have enjoyed looking at different stories this week. We have begun looking more closely at the story “We are going on the Bear Hunt”. Ask your child if they can remember the name of the author!
We have made some masks and we have been building obstacle courses and caves as we retell the story.
In phonics this week, we have been learning:
y, z, qu
tricky words: he, she
Spell tricky words: the, to
Please can you help the children with these sounds at home.
In maths this week, we have been ordering numbers and playing some number games. The children have been practising writing numbers. We are now counting to 100 at the beginning of our maths lessons.
We have observed some lovely learning during our Choosing time in class. Edith and Laila developed their own fairy tale. They both chose names for their Prince Charming.
Some of the children have chosen to make some masks to retell the bear hunt story. They were trying different ways to make the masks fit and stay on their faces.
Some of the children decided to write a sign for the Bear Hunt obstacle course outside.
Have an enjoyable weekend! If your child does anything new or helpful then please write it on a sticky note or wow slip to go on their wall.
As I mentioned to many of you at the Parent’s evening, you are very welcome to come and look in your child’s folder in the mornings before school. I have not made a particular morning because I know everyone has different schedules. If an afternoon is better for you, then we are usually in the classroom until at least 4 pm on Monday to Thursday.
