Happy New Year!
Tuesday 5th January | 2 comments
Welcome back, we hope you all had a fun and relaxing 2 weeks. The children have come in to school really calm and ready to explore some new areas of provision. We are introducing the season of ‘winter’. We have an wintery igloo to investigate, snow dough, ice small world and a snow area – lots to see! Our ‘Funky Fingers’ activity is to make bird feeders using pipe cleaners and cereal hoops.
We have started the week by reading the story ‘How Big is a Million?’. It is about a small penguin called Pipkin who likes asking lots of questions. The question he asks ‘How big is a million?’ and this is where his adventure begins. We are also going to finding out information about penguins using the internet and by reading non-fiction books. There will be lots of counting, counting of objects and number recognition too.
Please remember all applications for Reception school places should be completed by 15th January. We can’t stress enough how important it is that you meet this deadline. If you don’t it could mean your child being allocated any other school. If you need any support then please email me to arrange a convenient time – [email protected]
Stay and Read
This week we will sending out letters about our ‘Stay and Read’ sessions. They will be starting next Wednesday 13th January. The morning Stay and Read will run from 8.45-9.15am and the afternoon will run from 12.30-1pm. The aim of the sessions is for to share books with your child. There are no obligations to come every week.
Thank you for all your kind wishes. We had a fantastic wedding and honeymoon. Have a great week, wrap up warmly!
