Congratulations to our Star of the Week
LOLA for working well in a team, sharing and taking turns like the Teamwork Trio!
TOMMY for great listening to instructions.
We have PE on Thursday
Autumn Term (1)
What a great start to the new school year! Fox class have enjoyed settling into the classroom environment and making new friends! We have started to follow the school routines and have explored our new classroom and the outside classroom!
We look forward to seeing Fox class next week for their first full week in school!
Have a good weekend,
The children are settling beautifully and are becoming more familiar with school life! We have been focusing on our dragon school values this week! We met Resilient Ruby who inspires us to try our best and never give up even though we may face some challenges!
We also met Independent Isaac who is reminding us to have a go at things first before asking an adult for help! Challenge Charlie also visited us and taught us to challenge ourselves and set high expectations for ourselves and our friends! The children have also been working as a team this week like teamwork trio dragon and have been sharing and turn taking well! Lastly Creative Christoph came and inspired us to be creative in everything we do and to express our own ideas rather than using someone else’s!
See if your child can share some of the dragon values with you at home!
Reminder for parents: please ensure your child has their p.e kit in school ready for p.e on Thursdays!
This week we have continued to focus on the different dragon values within our activities! I am pleased to see that the children are persevering and having ago like Resiliant Ruby – especially with putting their coats on and doing up zips!
We have been practising recognising and writing our names. We have also been painting our very own self portraits this week where we used a mirror to look at the different features on ourselves and our friends, such as eye/hair colour, ears, nose, mouth etc.. we discussed how we are all unique and have similarities and differences.
This week we also enjoyed our p.e and science lesson, where we focused on our senses and how important they are! We really enjoyed feeling the different objects with our eyes closed and guessing what they could be!
This week the children met our Eco Warrior Dr Collins! We explored the outside area and worked as pairs to discover what we could find in our surroundings! The children loved using the magnifying glass and sharing what they discovered with their friends!!
This week in maths we have been exploring Numicon!
We have been recognising Numicon as a counting apparatus and became familiar with the Numicon shapes – focusing on the amount, colour and number of holes! The children were being like Resilient Ruby in their maths and counted each Numicon hole carefully!
Some of the children ordered the Numicon from 0-10!
In Shape, Space, Measure we have been exploring and comparing the size, length and height of objects! Ask your child if they can describe the size of something using some simple words we’ve learnt this week such as long, short (length), tall, short (height) big and small!!
Take a look at some highlights below..
Reading books are changed every Thursday.
Please ensure your child’s reading record book is written in after each read and brought into school everyday!
Thank you! Have a great weekend Foxes,
Well done to our Star of the Week – Phoebe!
Another busy week in Fox Class!
This week we started our Talk for Write lessons where we have been imitating (retelling) the story ‘Come Along Daisy’. We have been like team work trio and working really hard to remember all the words and actions! Ask your child to show you at home!
In Phonics this week the children have been intro ducked to s, a, t and p. We have learnt the letter names and the letter sounds to match( my name is s, my sound is sssss…)
The children have been hearing the initial sounds and matching to the correct letter shape!
In maths we have continued to explore the Numicon shapes! We are becoming more familiar with the shapes, odd and even, colour and amount! This week we have focused on our age and representing this amount in different ways…
We have also continued to practise writing our names in Fox Class, have a go writing your names independently at home.
Have a great weekend Foxes,
