This week in nursery we have been listening to different sounds that belong to instruments. Your home challenge this week is to create an instrument that you can bang or shake!
Get busy , have lots of fun and share your learning with your teacher for your class reward!
Here are Spencer and Reid talking about their big writing! I love how creative the boys were in their story telling and creations about ‘the big long road ‘
The children have been listening to lots of new ajd favourite stories this week. Here are some of the nursery boys retelling the story using instruments and actions. They’re not scared anymore!
I have been really impressed with everyone in Class 10 this week. You have blown me away with your setting description writing this week and you have shared some great adjectives.
This week’s learning legends were Hattie, Macie, Neve and Amelia. Well done for a great week girls!
Today we enjoyed exploring outside and observing our natural environment. The children also enjoyed playing in the wind and listening to the different sounds it makes.
Have a great weekend

Tomorrow the children will bring home a phonics keyring. This keying will contain the sounds we have covered in class over the last two weeks. Please practise the sounds regularly at home to ensure children can recall the sounds confidently. Keyrings can be returned every Wednesday in the plastic wallet provided for new sounds to be added. Some of the children will be feeling confident with these sounds already and we ask that these children practise making words using the sounds e.g. Can you make the word as, it, sat, cat. You can also make a word and ask your child to blend the sounds together to read the word you have made.
When learning the sounds with your child it is really important to ensure they pronounce the sounds correctly. This video will show you how each sound should be pronounced. It is really important that children learn to pronounce the sounds correctly as it will make it easier for them to read words.
The video below shows the songs the children learn in class to match each sound:
Don’t forget we will also be posting a weekly phonics activity in the Google Classroom. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s phonics development please do not hesitate to ask you child’s class teacher.
Today in English, we have reading more of our class text, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom.’ The children have been studying the text and retrieving information to help them answer comprehension questions. They have all done really well and are showing promising signs in their understanding. Keep up the good work!
Next week we will be learning how to use column addition. Watch this video and have a go at home to help you get ahead with your learning.
We have had lots of fun exploring the story of the Hungry Caterpillar for the past two weeks.
For our hook activity we tasted some of the foods that the hungry caterpillar ate in the story.
We have also been retelling the story using the vocabulary from the text.
We learned how to draw a caterpillar and how to use our phonics skills to label our pictures.
In maths today we had a go at problem solving. We were using 6 counters and trying to find as many different three digit numbers as we could. It was great to see everyone working collaboratively and being a stickability Stan to keep finding different possibilities.
