Cover Teacher: Miss Rennie
This terms topics are ‘Once upon a time’ and ‘Space is ace!’. So far this term we have been learning about traditional tales such as, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘The Gingerbread Man’. We have had lots of fun retelling these stories and sequencing pictures from the traditional tales.
We made houses for the 3 little pigs out of different materials. We tested how strong they all were using a hair dryer. We huffed and puffed but not all of the houses fell down.
This week we have been making posters to help us find the gingerbread man. He ran away as fast as he could and now we are hoping our posters help to find him!
Can you help us?
We have been learning our numbers to 20 and saying 1 more or 1 less than a given number. We have also been learning the names of 2D and 3D shapes.
We are doing really well with our phonics, learning lots of new sounds. This is helping us to do some fantastic reading and super writing.
The children have settled in very well to school life at Crockenhill Primary School. They know the routines very well and understand what is expected of them - well done Class Matisse!
Class Matisse have also learnt all about road safety from a special visitor this term. They know how to cross the road safely and that they must sit on a booster seat and always wear their seatbelt when they are in a moving vehicle.
The children have been enjoying indoor and outdoor learning through play as you can see from the photos below. The children’s days are filled with learning but in a playful, engaging and exciting way as they explore, discover, experiment, investigate and communicate in different ways.
Thank you all for your support so far. Please remember to check your child’s book bag as we regularly send home important information. Please remember to read with your child 3 times a week and make a record of this in your child’s contact book.
If you have any questions no matter how big or small please don’t hesitate to ask us!
Marvin The Meerkat
Marvin is our class mascot, he gets to go home with a different child every friday. When you get to take him home please look after him and let him join in all of your activities over the weekend. You can even stick photos and write about what you did with him in his diary. We can't wait to see who he goes home with next!
