Hello Red Class,
Wow! I was amazed to see so many children walking into school without their grown up this morning and completing their morning routine independently. I thought I was standing in a Year 1 classroom. Keep up the good work Red Class.
This morning we played a new game in Phonics where I spoke like a robot. You then listened to the sounds and put them together to complete an action. For example, I would say, “j-u-m-p” and you all jumped into the air. We then found out about ‘p’ through our song and story and you thought of lots of words beginning with ‘p’ with your learning partner.
During number work, we used Numicon to learn a new song, “Dancing in the Sun”. We used our fingers to show the number of flowers and then used Numicon to help build a picture of each number. Later on, we danced to the volcano song and then drew a volcano using chalk. You worked really hard to draw a super picture with both hands!
Finally, it was nice to meet Mrs Allen in the afternoon. Mrs Allen will help the children with their learning on Thursday and Friday afternoons when I’m completing lots of jobs for Early Years. Today, Mrs Allen enjoyed finding out about your shoe boxes and learning about you.
Forest School will start next Friday, 21st September but the children can wear their Forest School clothes tomorrow to get them into the routine. On Fridays, the children need to wear their Blackwell jumper with jogging bottoms and trainers so all change at the bottom!
See you tomorrow Red Class,
Mrs Webb, Mrs Reid, Mrs Cain, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Thompson xxx
