Just some reminders

PE day is Tuesday please make sure the children have a PE kit in school.

We listen to the children read on Mondays and Fridays and change books on Monday morning. Please remember to write in the purple book when you have read together at home. You can also write in the book if you read a favourite story at home.

There is a coffee morning for all nursery and reception parents on Thursday 24th January  from 8.45am it would be lovely to see you all there. It is a chance to get together and share any ideas and thoughts about your children and their classes.

The children really enjoyed sharing their books from home with their friends, they are amazing story tellers and could talk about the sequence of the story and their favourite characters. We would like to make this a weekly event and the children can share a book every Monday.

This week’s learning

This week we have been on an environment walk and talked about ways we can help our world. We have been following our own interests and there has been a lot of play based around police and fire services. We need these people to help us keep save and look after our world.

In maths we have been working with numbers to 10 and focusing on counting one to one to find out how many in a group.
George has lost Peppa Pig. Can the police help to find her?

We enjoyed using different resources to show how to make the correct amount.


This week we have been learning about  ways to help our world. For homework choose one idea and make a poster to show a way to help the world.

Next week’s Learning

Next week we will be exploring different texts and researching on the internet to find out about space. We will be investigating the planets in the solar system and finding out about space exploration. We are looking at information books and learning the difference between fiction and non fiction books.

In maths we will be revising our numbers to 10, recognition, counting out loud, counting one to one and finding different ways to make 10. We will play How many people on the bus?

We will be singing 5 little men in a flying saucer and linking to subtraction.

The children have really enjoyed taking care of the environment this week and we will continue to watch the birds and look after our outside area.
