This term our topic is 'Superheroes'
This term we will be thinking about Superheroes. We will be talking about who our favourite superhero is and what our favourite superheroes do. We are hoping to organise a Superhero Day for the children to come into school dressed as their favourite Superhero and hopefully we may have some special visitors.
This week, it has been lovely to see the enthusiasm from the children as we have begun to learn our sounds. They have learnt m, a and s and even had a go at writing them. Once they have completed the homework sheets at home, it is great if they can keep them in their book bags to keep practising with you as often as possible. We have also learnt how to careful count making sure that we touch or move each item as we count them to avoid making any mistakes. The children had a go at this by careful counting cars in a car park which they were fantastic at. We have also started to paint our self portraits to go up in the school hall. The children used mirrors to look closely at themselves before drawing and choosing the correct colours for painting. If your child has been showing you any of this learning at home, we would love to see on Tapestry.
Another busy week in Foundation. We have played lots of 'getting to know eachother' games and the children are slowly beginning to remember the names of the other children in their class. We have also practised name writing and were really impressed to see them trying hard and it would be great if they can continue to practise this at home. They are building in confidence with exploring their surroundings and getting to know the routines. They have enjoyed playing in the superhero role play and are slowly getting better at helping during tidy up time! We have enjoyed reading your comments on Tapestry and thank you to those who have managed to send us some photos of things the children get up when they are with you.
The children have had a fantastic start to the school year, we are so proud of how quickly all of the children have settled into their new classrooms. We have been learning all about the school day and listened carefully to instructions such as where to put our coats and book bags. We have been into lunch for the first time and have enjoyed a roast dinner and fish and chips. We have enjoyed exploring all of the new toys and especially enjoyed the outdoor area, getting muddy in the mud pit. Just a small reminder if you haven't already please activate your tapestry account, any problems please ask your class teacher.
