Hello Red Class,

This week, we joined the whole school to find out about and make scarecrows for the festival. Did you find your little scarecrows? You worked hard to stuff, join and decorate your scarecrows and you made important decisions about your work too. Did you manage to spot Mrs Webb and Miss Turner as scarecrows?

Our story this week was, “The Scarecrow Who Didn’t Scare”. We used pictures from the story to support our talk work with our learning partner We were trying very hard to speak in full sentences which is an important skill for later writing. We thought about why the scarecrow looked sad and gave reasons for our answers before thinking of ways to make him happy again.

We’ve been practising the sound, action and song for g, o, c and k and trying hard to read keywords. Keywords are words that you will see a lot in your reading and sometimes they have a tricky part to find. Keep practising your keywords at home using the keyword games on the reverse of the class newsletter. See Mrs Webb if you would like another copy of the newsletter.

Maths sessions have focused on 2D shapes (Suzie Square, Robert Rectangle, Sammy Circle and Timmy Triangle). We enjoyed looking for 2D shapes around the classroom and singing about them. Over the weekend, you could look for 2D shapes at home and make a shape picture.

Next week, we’re turning into Vikings as we find out about daily life and ‘set sail’ on our school trip to Bishop’s Wood. On Friday, the children should dress in Forest School clothes as usual and wear trainers to school. We’ll have to find another time for our hot chocolate as this was a highlight of Forest School this week!

On Wednesday, 11th October at 7pm we’re hosting a workshop for Red Class families to find out about reading, writing, maths and outdoor learning. During the workshop we will share keys messages and demonstrate games and activities to support learning at home. Get ready for a dough dance! If you would like more information, please speak to Mrs Webb.

Enjoy the weekend superstars,

Mrs Webb, Miss Turner and Mrs Roberts
