Red Friday Fanfare 18th October

Hello Red Class,

Today, Oak, Oak, Ash (Forest School version of Duck, Duck, Goose) was our introductory game. Games like this help us to understand how to move around a fire circle safely. We listened to the story of ‘Grandfather Oak and the Little Acorn’ which supported our work on seeds and growth. We then used acorns and other seeds to make snails. When the rain started to fall, we returned inside for a warm drink and snacks.

During Phonics sessions, we looked at words with ss, ll and ff. We discovered that two letters can make one sound. I’ve popped some example words into your little blue books but you don’t need to draw any pictures. We added ‘no’ and ‘go’ to our keyword list. We’re growing in confidence to read these words by sight.

In Maths sessions, we subtracted small numbers using equipment and created subtraction number stories. We also performed a song called ‘Beans’ which helped us to count back from 5, 10, 15 and 20. There were lots of jelly, jumping and baked beans in the classroom!  

In play and explore time, the puppet show area was popular.  You enjoyed performing shows with your mini-me puppets. We will send your puppets home next week.  

Show and tell was fantastic with lots of super achievements to share and pictures linked to our autumn topic. It was lovely to share the children’s home learning.

Enjoy a wonderful weekend Red Class. Next week, we’re creating autumn board games.
