Welcome to Class 1!
Hello everyone, and welcome back to a new school year!
We have had a lovely week this week, helped by the weather! The children have enjoyed playing outside this week and we've even had a couple of water fights!
The class have been very busy, we have had a focus on how to wash hands properly, taking photographs of each step, sequencing them and making posters to put around school. We have also been drawing our self-portraits, looking closely at our face and noticing our eyes, nose, mouth and ears.
Topic - This term we are learning all about ourselves, including our family and the world around us. If possible, please could you email me (email@example.com) some pictures of yourselves, immediate family and extended family, so we can talk about our family and who is in it. Thank you.
Focus book - "Here We Are" by Oliver Jeffers.
Phonics - Reception will be looking at the sounds m, n, i and d this week. Whilst nursery will have a focus on listening to and singing nursery rhymes.
Maths - We are counting forwards and backwards to 10 and learning about how old we are and showing this on our fingers. We have also been sorting things this week - trying to group objects by sorting them, for example, sorting animals into wild and farm animals.
I would like to thank everyone for wearing a mask this week, we really appreciate it.
As always, any worries, please come and talk to us.
Mrs Morrison and Mrs Rollins
