Friday 9/11/18

Choose Respect is the theme for Antibullying Week 2018.  The children will be taking part in a range of activities over the week linked to antibullying.  Activities include: The wall of respect, writing an acrostic poem on the theme of ‘choose respect’ and designing a ‘respect’ wristband.  Assemblies on Tuesday will have a bullying/antibullying focus, and we will be looking out for children who ‘choose respect’ over the week.

Please ask your child to share what they have learnt this week.  They should be able to explain what bullying is, what to do if worried about bullying, and know that they are in control over the way they behave and treat others.

Dates for the diary:

Wednesday 21st is the school disco. If you would like to attend please bring in £2. You can bring party clothes in a bag and we will get changed after school. Pick up will then be 4:30 from the classroom door as usual.

November 27th at 8.50 am there will be a phonics workshop for parents to attend.

This weeks learning

Another busy week of learning. In maths we have been looking at one more than and one less than. Working it out using our fingers, number cards and other objects around the room. We have been talking about how more than means the numbers are getting bigger and less than means the number will be getting smaller.

In topic we have been learning about Diwali. We read the story of Rama and Sita and made our own Diva lamps. This was lots of fun. We have also been learning about Remembrance Day. We have talked about the importance of the Poppy as a sign of remembrance. We then made poppies using salt dough.




For homework we would like you to watch part of the Remembrance Day service and find out a fact about Remembrance Day. Please bring the fact in on Monday to share with the class.


For anti-bullying week we would like you to decorate an anti-bullying wristband  to wear to school on Tuesday.


Next weeks learning

Next week in topic we will be looking at Eid. We will be discussing who celebrates Eid and what celebrations are included. We will also be thinking about our Nativity performance. We will be rehearsing our songs, practicing our lines and deciding on our roles.

In maths we will be looking at addition and subtraction for numbers up to 5. In our shop we are introducing money for the children to use in there role play activities.
