Reception – So Much

This week, we have focussed on the story ‘So Much’ by Trish Cooke. It is a lovely story where many different people come together for a big birthday surprise. They all talk about how they love the baby “so much!” We have also learnt the signs for ‘party’, ‘cake’ and ‘happy’.

We have been working on making our vocabulary grow and using different words that mean the same thing. This week, we have focussed on the word ‘happy’ and have learnt that we can also say; jolly, joyous, delighted, content and jovial. As part of our Jigsaw sessions, we have talked about different emotions and what might make us feel certain ways. We explored things that we can do if we are feeling upset or cross.

As the weather is becoming a little cooler, we have been discussing autumn and what happens around this time of year. We have learnt a lovely song called ‘Crunching Through the Leaves’ to sing whenever we are out and about and see leaves on the ground.

Please have a look at the Home Learning below to find some fun activities to do at home.

A few reminders:

  • Please could you check that your child’s uniform and any bags are named.
  • We are approaching that time of year where we all have lots of sniffles. Therefore, we would greatly apprecitae a donation of a box of tissues.
  • We are asking for £3 contributions towards buying ingredients for cooking. These can be made via the School Gateway app.

Nursery – Birthdays and So Much!

We have had another super week in the nursery this week, our theme has been ‘birthdays’ and we have enjoyed stories that include a birthday or a party. One of our favourites has been the story ‘So Much!’ In the story, a family all get together and have a surprise party for the dad. 

We have been rather busy again, this week, we are now becoming much more confident with the routines of our school day and have been learning our ‘superhero rules’, perhaps your child could tell you what they are?

We have continued with our narrative work and our theme of ‘who’. It has been lovely to hear the children recalling each other’s names when playing different ‘who am I’ games. We have decorated birthday balloons, made our own birthday badges using our scissor skills and we enjoyed playing the party game ‘musical bumps’.

Our focus story for next week is the traditional tale ‘The Enormous Turnip’, please find the attached home learning for some fun activities to try at home.

Home Learning takes off in Year 4

The Year 4 pupils have blown us away with their effort and creativity when completing this week’s Home Learning. From beautifully drawn and handmade diagrams of the human digestive system to 4-digit numbers represented by Lego, post it notes, stationery and even pasta! The whole year group have worked hard to practise their times tables on Sparx, learn the homophones they were set and hand in their Reading Journals on time. We’re looking forward to seeing what next week has in store. Keep up the fantastic attitude to learning in and out of school Year 4 – well done!!
