Hello Red Class,
We started our new ‘Art Journey’ books this week. This special book will stay with you as you move from Reception to Year 4 and will be filled with examples of your super work. This week, we explored marks, lines and shapes using different mark makers such as pencils, felt tip pens, oil pastels and wax crayons. We also started to design and create shields for the open evening display.
In PE, you demonstrated your super throwing and catching skills and used a bean bag to keep your body shapes as still as possible. There were a few wobbly bean bags! See if you can make the shapes at home (shorts, trousers, skirt, dress) and try to balance something flat on your head at the same time.
Our phonics sessions focused on b, h, f and l so please try to draw a picture for each sound in your little blue book. We tried very hard to practise our keywords and we really enjoyed playing buried treasure where you sorted real and ‘alien’ (nonsense) words. Your grown ups can find this game through a website called ‘Phonics Play’.
Maths sessions involved lots of counting. We counted sounds, actions and most importantly objects! Did you know that the total will stay the same if you count a number of objects and then arrange them in a different way? Red Class discovered this fact through lots of practical activities this week.
Thank you to the families who attended the workshop on Wednesday. We’ve received some lovely comments. If you couldn’t attend, don’t worry, we will send out a pack of information next week. Please pop into school if you have any questions. We’re more than happy to help.
We’ve nearly completed our first half term. Well done Red Class for working very hard and showing lots of enthusiasm at school. Also, a big 'thank you' for your junk! Enjoy the weekend superstars and we’ll see you on Monday.
Mrs Webb, Miss Turner and Mrs Roberts
