Monday, 23rd September

Welcome to our weekly blog. 

This week we are starting our topic “Marvellous Me”.  Our key text this week is Elmer. During our story sessions we will discuss similarities and differences, look at characters and practice using our listening skills.  Our keyword this week is ‘unique’. We will encourage children to use this word during circle time. At home you can help your child by using our keyword in a sentence.

During phonics we will be focusing on our listening skills and recapping phase 1.  In Maths we are starting our 15 minute maths lessons by learning the days of the week song and looking at the calendar pattern.  You could support your child by reciting the days of the week.

During our topic sessions we will look closely at colour and changes.  We have lots of lovely activities planned such as painting on ice, using pipettes for our finger gym and a message centre in the writing area.  Forest school will start next week. Please ensure wellington boots are kept at school.
