Week 5

This week we have begun exploring Numicon in maths. The children have really enjoyed getting to know the different shapes, colours and size of each piece and carefully counting the holes to find out each amount. We worked together to order the Numicon and talk about our favourite Numicon shape.


We have also been thinking about size in our measures lessons and exploring this in our discovery time. The children are able to make simple comparisons and use everyday language to talk about size.

Hedgehogs have PE on Wednesday and music on Thursdays.

Well done to our Star of the Week – Alex

Week 7

The children have worked very hard in the last week of their first term at school! We are very impressed with how well the children have settled into school life over the last few weeks and they have definitely earned their week off! This week we learnt the sounds i, n,m and d, ask your child if they can show you the action for each sound! 

Thank you to everyone who attended our craft afternoon on Tuesday, the children loved being able to show you their classrooms! We hope you all have a lovely half term break!

Autumn Term (2)

Week 1

This week we had our visit from Dr Collins. We have been reading the story ‘How to Catch A Star’ in talk for write, we made a giant star using all of the autumn leaves and then enjoyed making fireworks by throwing the leaves in the air. This week we have had our inspirational maths week and have enjoyed exploring pattern and shape.

Well done to all the children who practised writing their names over the half term!

Well done to our Star of the Week – OLIVIA

This week we have been exploring the Numicon rods by using the one rod to find value of each rod. The children have really got more confident with counting carefully and accurately. We have also begun handwriting and the children have been learning to write the curly club letters; a and c. 

We have also been preparing for our rememberance assembly on Monday, the children have used handprints to create a beautiful class poppy.

Please continue to read regularly at home and help your child to write their name.

Thank you 

Well done to our Star of the Week – Shaya!

In maths we have continued to work with the Numicon rods, exploring their value. 

We have also done some art this week, exploring how to make marks with different materials.

Don’t forget to sign up to ‘Marvellous Me’ if you haven’t already!

Week 4

This week we have been learning about instructions in our talk for write lessons. We have practised giving instructions to each other and creating instructions for how to catch a star. Next week we will be writing our own instructions for how to catch a star. 

In phonics we have been practising all of the sounds we have learnt so far and applying this to our reading and writing. 





Well done to our Star of the week – JACK!


Week 5

This week in talk for write we have been writing instructions for how to catch a star. We came up with a set of class instructions, thinking carefully about how to use time connective and imperative verbs. The children then had a go at creating their own instructions. They came up with some really creative ideas like using a giants chair and a hot air balloon. 

In maths we have been practising all of the skills we have learnt this half term. The children are now very confident using the Numicon apparatus to support their learning.
