Autumn 1: 2018
The children have had a wonderful start to the school year. They have settled really well and showed real enthusiasm to all of the new things they have learnt this term.
We have been exploring a topic on 'Nursery Rhymes' and had great fun singing them, sequencing pictures and acting them out with costumes.
The children have also been exploring the different areas in our learning environments – both inside and outside.
They have been getting to know the different children in their classes, talking about the rules that we have in school and building their skills when playing and learning alongside others.
Have a look at some of the things they have been up to below...
The children have worked hard on developing their listening skills this term.
This is particularly important when they are listening for sounds and so we began our learning of ‘phonics’ with lots of listening walks whilst wearing their listening ears. They were great fun to wear and really helped them to think about what they could hear around the school.
Parents were invited to come along to a ‘Phonics Workshop’ session in October where they could learn how the children are taught ‘Phonics’ at our School and join in some activities with their child. If you were unable to attend or need a little reminder, please find the powerpoint and ‘Ideas’ letter below.
It was also wonderful to see so many families come along to our Celebration Assembly at the end of term.
We hope you enjoyed making your own ‘listening ears’ and join in the listening games that we got to play with your children.
