I have created a page within the Children and EYFS menu of the school website with lots of tips and ideas for supporting with phonics and reading at home.
The link to the page is here.
Please let me know if you want any further ideas adding, share anything you’ve enjoyed in the comments below and email me directly if you have any other requests.
Miss Carter and I called to see Dan the building site manager to see the nursery and how it has changed this week. Dan and his team are working really hard to get the nursery finished so we can move back soon. The plasterer’s have been in, the windows have been fitted and we now have a roof and a floor in the extension part.
We are so excited to see the developments after half term.
Thanks to Dan for coming to see the key stage 1 children as part of their theme – looking at building materials and talking about his job.
Theo amazed me this week, following our introduction to number sentences for subtraction in class 3 on Tuesday. I challenged him to solves a number sentence using the balls outdoors. Theo selected the blue balls and then the yellow ones and we created a numbers sentence which he solved independently. After a good search outdoors he found the ball he needed for his answer! Well done Theo, awesome subtraction solving!
Following our hook week I would like to set you a challenge all about Paddington!
If you know the answers to any of these questions ask your gown ups to post your replies and each reply will win 10 house points!
- Where is Paddington from originally?
- Who found Paddington sitting on his suitcase?
- What did Paddington’s label say?
- What is Paddington’s favourite food?
- Who is Michael Bond and why is he important to Paddington?
I can’t wait to see your responses!
It’s been a cold week in Thorne, but that hasn’t stopped class 3 and 4 learning outdoors.
Here you can see us solving addition problems by counting how many bean bags we could get in the bucket altogether.
We had to sign the train register if we were building in the train yard too.
The weather doesn’t stop us having fun!
