A Birthday Party in RH
Friday 19th October | 2 comments
What an exciting week we have had!
The children were very interested in birthdays at the beginning of the week and they were quite keen to have a birthday party. Believe it or not, it was our class Teddy, Tim’s birthday this week.
What did we do?
The children received a letter from Tim explaining that it was his birthday and that he didn’t have any friends to celebrate it with. It was his 5th birthday. We wrote a list of things we could do to help him celebrate. The children then decided to make invitations and cards for Tim. Lots of the children wrote the number ‘5’ on their cards and made good attempts at writing ‘To Tim’ on their cards/invitations.
Some children baked cakes for Tim which the children enjoyed after they played party games in the hall.
Our tricky word of the week was ‘no’.
In phonics we have learnt the phonemes:
In maths, the children have been consolidating their learning around numbers to 5. They have practically added ‘1 more’ to a block of cubes, ordered numbers to 5 and had a go at writing numbers 1 to 5 on a number track. They have done very well with this.
The children have been climbing, jumping, crawling, balancing and moving in PE.
We have also read a book about being angry this week. The children have shared things that make them angry and we have talked about strategies to help us when we’re angry, for example counting to 5.
Thank you to all the parents/carers that attended the Literacy Workshop. We hope that you found useful. For those of you that couldn’t attend, we will hand out some information at Parents’ Evening.
Parents Evening is next week on Tuesday and Wednesday. If you haven’t already signed up for an appointment, please contact the school office to make one.
Have a great weekend.
