Friday 8th November


A wet but busy week in Owlets and Eaglets.



Our Wednesday word champions for this week are Emilia Hart and  Joseph Waterworth for always making the good choices. Well done to the both of you.



Well done to Grace Nelson and Amelia Littler this week, who have helped to make our classroom a happy place to be by listening carefully and being kind this week.


WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK ? – During our Come and See (R.E) activities we have responded to all that we have learned by creating a making people feel welcome poster and wondering about the big question -  why is welcome important? The children have also helped to plan our end of topic celebration and joined in with the collective worship. The children have brought home a heart that reads – I belong to God’s family, to help them hold on to all we have learned during our welcome topic.

Within our literacy sessions, the children have been learning m and d. Some children have looked at h, b, l and f. They have used these sounds when reading and writing simple words. We have continued to work with the story of where the wild things are and have written a sentence about an event from the story. The children sequenced the pictures and told the story in their own words. They enjoyed acting out the story as a class. Photographs to follow. The children have also enjoyed talking about their experiences of bonfire night.

In maths, we have focussed on number 6, looking at how to write it and finding all things six. We have focussed on 1-1 counting and writing the number 6 and created a number 6 museum for our maths celebration book. We have also looked at shapes related to 6, the hexagon, cube and cuboid, as they have six sides/faces and vertices.

During the afternoon, the children have enjoyed creating their own bonfire night pictures using wax crayons and black paint.  They have also used the laptops to create their own firework pictures. We have been exploring floating and sinking . The children have listened to the story ‘A King is born’ and we have discussed with the children what parts they are going to play in our Christmas performance. A letter will come home on Monday informing you of your child’s part in the play and the costume they will need.  

The children were very thoughtful and respectful during our minutes silence on Friday in remembrance of the soldiers.


WEEKEND CHANLLENGE – Thank you to all the parents who helped their child to complete the task of making a poppy. This week we are asking the children to find a photograph of one of their birthday celebration, this is in preparation for our new RE topic on Birthdays which we will start in a couple of weeks.

PUDSEY DAY – Next Friday we will be joining in with Children in Need day. The children are able to come dressed in sporty clothes on this day. We are asking that the children bring in a donation to put in Pudsey’s spotty bucket. We are selling raffle tickets priced at £1 to win aa big Pudsey Bear. The raffle will be drawn next Friday.
