Thank-you for the fantastic woodland objects that you managed to collect over the weekend, please do bring them in on Monday if you collect any more this weekend. We have enjoyed our Owl Babies stories this week, the children are excited to have a go in our forest in the classroom next week. This week we have made our own owl babies puppets, painted the forest, retold the story using masks and ordered the story using pictures!

In Maths we have been looking at all of the numbers we have learned so far (1-5), we have been learning about the different ways we can make a number and the children made their very own owl baby number lines.

In RWI we have learned:
r - Down his back, then curl over his arm.
j - Down his body, curl and dot.
v - Down a wing, up a wing.
y - down a horn, up a horn and around his head.
The children are becoming increasingly confident at writing the sounds, I hope they will show you at home with their letters mat and whiteboard pen!

We have enjoyed having ‘trips to the forest’ in PE, where we have seen and acted like lots of the animals you may find! The children have been hopping, jumping and running around the forest. They have even collected food, flown back to their nest and jumped off the branches (benches to us)!

We will send the Divali tealight holders home soon but here is a sneak preview of the children with their lovely work.

Next week we will begin our discussion books, they will then be sent home (this will be throughout the week, some children will bring theirs home before others depending on the day we share the book with them in school) for you to share together. The book will come with an information sheet for you about the book and questions you could ask or activities you may choose to do. Please write in the reading record when you have shared the book and add any comments you have. We do ask that you spend a minimum of 3 times per week sharing the book(s) together. For each date the children have read, they will gain a sticker on their reading bookmark. Once the bookmark is full the children will receive a certificate for their reading at home.
These books must live in the children’s bags and come to school every day, as we may need them in school on any day.

If you have any questions, please catch me after school next week.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Dixon and Mrs Mahoney
