School Dinner Choices

 The children have settled really well into school routines. To encourage independence we have started to ask the children for their dinner choices at register time each day. They are really good at remembering this and so we have decided to continue without the weekly choices form for parents to fill in. For your information we will put up the dinner choices each week.

Thank you

Hello

Hope you are all well and having a good week. For those of you who would like some more activities to do here are a few ideas.

1. Read the story of The Little Red Hen in a book or you tube. Discuss the characters and their feelings, setting and what happens at the beginning, in the middle and at the end.

2. Draw each character, colour it in and in a speech bubble or underneath have a go at writing "not I".

3. Design a "silly sandwich". What would the children put in it? Smelly socks and cheese? Chocolate spread and ketchup? Can they have a go at drawing or writing the ingredients they would use to make their silly sandwich.

4. Make a real sandwich. Discuss what the children need to do first, next, then finally. They could draw pictures and number each step.

Maths

Hello - here are some practical activities that I hope the children will enjoy. 

I have also added some number counting and formation worksheets to print out. There are enough here for the whole week.

 

1.Numbers everywhere

What numbers can you see around your house? Look at food packets, magazines, books, your front door, clocks etc

Draw pictures of the objects with numbers on. Can you find objects that have a number 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 on them? What other numbers can you find around your house? Draw the object with the number on it?

2.Number hunt

Ask a grown up to write the numbers 0-10 on separate pieces of paper and hide them round your house and garden. When you find a number tell your grown up the name of the number you have found. Show your grown up the correct number of fingers to represent each number. You could try using a timer. Can you find all the numbers before the timer runs out?

3.Tray numbers.

In a shallow tray of flour or sand/sugar/salt use your finger to write the number in the tray. Can a friend or family member guess the number you are writing?

 

English

 Little Red Riding Hood

1.Read the story of Little Red Riding Hood, watch a you tube version or BBC Schools Radio has the story in several parts to watch.

2.Talk about the story and the characters. Talk about the setting. Can the children join in the repeated speech eg “Grandma what big…you’ve got”  “All the better to … you with…”?

 

3. Talk about how Little Red thought the wolf was grandma? Why did she think that? If the children have dressing up clothes or paper/ material they could make themselves a disguise.

 

4. What other disguises could the wolf have used? Can the children either draw or colour a disguise on the picture of the wolf (attached below to print)? Could he be a superhero, a unicorn?

 

5. Little Red Riding Hood’s favourite colour is red. Can you think of lots of red things that she could put in her basket eg strawberries?  Make a list by drawing the pictures. You could draw a basket with lots of red things in it.  A grown up might want to help with labels for the pictures.

Phonics w/c 05.10.20  (please refer to whiteboard attached below)

 

This week we are learning the sounds  O  C  and K. Please go though the previous sounds that we have learned as a class like flash card- then ask your child to stretch out each word with their hands saying the separate sounds e.g., c-a-t, then 'squash' them to make the  blended word. Ask your child to play teacher to show you how it's done! Introduce one new sound per day.

 

For the additional days, have a go at the initial sounds game (concentrating on O C and K only) or copy and paste the link below, where your child can play interactive phonic games. Have fun!

Welcome to Foundation!

Your Foundation Stage Team is made up of Mrs Wakes, Mrs Morris and Mrs Hunter (who will also be covering PPA on Wednesday afternoons with Mrs Lawton)

 

In Foundation Stage we love learning through our children's interests and play. Children influence what we learn in our topics through 'Floor Book Planning', which ignites their curiosity and intrinsic motivation to learn.   

 

Autumn 1-Traditional Tales

In the first term our learning is themed around Traditional Tales such as The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Billy Goats Gruff. We learn through role play and repetition in stories. We also have fun baking our own Gingerbread men. 

 

Autumn 2- Let's Celebrate!

In this term we learn all about different types of celebrations such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. We have fun making our firework pictures, Rangoli patterns using coloured rice and Diva lamps. We also look at birthdays and have fun counting candles on the cakes and writing invitations. We celebrate the seasons by going on an Autumn walk and visiting the church to learn about the story of the first Christmas. 

 

Spring Term 1- Amazing Adventures!

In this topic we compare different environments from the Polar Regions to Outer Space. We learn about how polar bears keep warm and learn about how water changes state when cooled or heated. We also fly off to the moon and go in search of Aliens who love underpants! Additionally, we learn about Chinese New Year and hold a crafts afternoon for parents. 

 

Spring Term 2- Real Life Superheroes 

In this topic we learn about the people in our community that help us including the Police, Firefighters and many more. We also have visitors from different professions to come and speak to the children about their job. Would you like to come and speak to the children?

We also become superheroes and complete superheros challenges in our continuous provision. 

We learn about Easter and new life around us. 

 

Summer Term 1- I'm Alive!!!!!

In this topic we learn about living things all around us including the life cycle of a butterfly, frog and plants. We make frequent visits to our pond and notice the changes of the tadpoles as they turn into frogs. The children enjoy planting their own seeds and watching them grow. We conclude this topic with a visit to the Tropical Butterfly House.  

 

Summer Term 2- Our Wonderful World

In this topic we learn about the similarities and differences between our country and others. We particularly enjoy having a French breakfast where we enjoy croissants and baguettes - don't worry you are all invited too! 

We also compare a Sikh Wedding with a Christian wedding and hold our own little wedding up at the church.  

 

Religious Education

As we are a Christian school we also teach a weekly RE lesson as a stand alone subject. The children learn about the Christian Faith and how it is similar and different to other religions

 

Autumn 1- Christianity

 

Autumn 2- Hinduism and Christmas 

 

Spring 1- Islam 

 

Spring 2- Judaism and Easter

 

Summer 1- Buddhism 

 

Summer 2- Sikhism and weddings
