Red Class Friday Fanfare 10.03.23


Hello Red Class Families,

If we managed to return every glove, hat, sock and snow boot to the right children then I will be very happy and surprised! Mrs Spurgeon’s organisation skills were certainly put to the test at 1.40pm and she did a marvellous job. If you’re missing any items, just email the office. The children enjoyed their time in the snow.

We tackled ‘z’ in our handwriting lessons and spent the rest of the week working on curly caterpillar letters. We created some transport-themed pictures using these letters. Every week, we practise forming numerals too. This week, the children focused on 3, 6 and 8. Remember to start each numeral from the top.

In Phonics, we read words containing ‘er’ and ‘air’ and words with double letters e.g. ‘rubbish’, ‘muffin’ and ‘chatter’. Every lesson, the children write 3 keywords including a tricky word e.g. no, go, of. I can see progress in the children’s confidence and ability to write these words using cursive letters. Well done, Red Class.

In Maths, we used ordinal numbers to order people and objects. Try using ordinal numbers at home. Who is first to eat their dinner? Stand your teddies in a line and find the third teddy from the front of the line. We’ve also started to count in 5s. The children might like to sing this song at home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ4jV14Oz5I

New eBooks have been added to reading accounts tonight. Sometimes, we share the same book over two weeks if we feel the children would benefit from extra sessions to improve their fluency and comprehension.

The children also enjoyed their first outdoor PE lesson, this week. We looked at good running technique and practised our skills in relay races. Next week, we’ll be practising our jumping skills with Mrs Thomas.

Finally, parent consultation times were sent out today. Please contact the school office if you need to change your day or time. During this meeting, you’ll be able to see your child’s learning journey and workbook.

Best wishes for the weekend whether it’s full of snow or sunshine,

Mrs Webb and Team Red Class
