The children are very enthusiastic about our new transport and journeys topic. They have been so busy drawing maps and making London buses. 

Next week, we will finish our London maps we are working on in groups for our new display and we will be using our new text 'The Naughty Bus' to write a sentence about who might be waiting at the bus stop for Naughty Bus! We are really focussing on our letter formation and thinking carefully about sounding out words when we are writing. 

In Maths, we will be comparing numbers 6, 7 and 8. We will be looking at different objects and deciding if it shows 6, 7 or 8. 

Thank you to all who attended the Reading Meeting. We hope that you found it useful and if you have any further questions please come and ask. 

Tapestry Challenge- as part of our new topic we are looking at different modes of transport. e are making  display of all the different types of transport we use and the journeys we have been on. If you use any mode of transport to go anywhere (car, train, tram, bus etc) please can you take a picture and upload onto tapestry so we can add to our display.

Have a a lovely weekend and thank you for your continued support.

Owls class are working so hard at the moment and it is wonderful to see. 

Next week in Literacy, the children will be introduced to our new class text 'The Naughty Bus' after receiving their parcel last week. In the story, the London bus is the little bys favourite toy so on Tuesday, the children are invited to bring in a toy from home to share with the class. Please can this be something that can fit in their book bag and nothing electrical/expensive/contains lots of parts that can get lost! The children will use their toy to explain why it is their favourite and write about in Literacy, We will begin to think about what you might see in London and create our own labelled maps.

In Maths, we will be learning about number 7 and looking at the seven days of the week and colours of the rainbow. We will be recording the weather using a days of the week chart.

We are holding a Reading Meeting about how to support your child with reading at home. You should have received a letter in the book bag with more information. If you have any questions or do not have a letter just come and let us know. 

As part of our weekly blog, we will be setting a weekly tapestry challenge for you to take part in. Once you have completed the challange if you can please upload onto tapestry and we will share in class.  This weeks tapestry challenge is a 3D shape hunt. What 3D shapes can you find around your house? Name the shape and discuss the properties with your child using the vocabulary faces etc.

As always, thank you so much for your continued support and come and see us if you need anything.

Next week is Nursery Rhyme Week in Owls class to celebrate world Nursery Rhyme week. 

We will be taking part in a range of activities, including counting spiders from Incy Wincy and sharing out of bags of wool from baa baa black sheep!

Our number of the week is 6. We are continuing to have a big focus on forming numbers correctly and looking at a set of objects and knowing how many there are (up to 4 objects) without counting. 

I am so proud of how well the children are getting on with their red tricky words. These are words that can't be sounded out so need to be learnt by sight, I will send home a list of the first set of red words we are working on in class.

We are having a real focus on writing our round letters and will be sending home a sheet for the children to practise. 

This week, singing practice is beginning for our Christmas play. We are so excited!

As always, thank you for your continued support and please ask if you are unsure of anything or if we can help in anyway.

Wow another super busy week in Owls class. We had an amazing time taking part in a fitness workshop this week and we now know lots of new sounds. 

You will find it the book bags a set of sound cards. These cover the sounds we have covered so far in phonics. Please practise these sounds with your child and begin to put the cards together to make words. E.g it sit mat sat pin. It is important that the children sound out each individual sound and then blend the sounds together to make the word. If you are unsure please come and ask. 

In Literacy, we are continuing to use 'Peace at Last' to help us with our writing. We will be looking at pictures from the story and beginning to identify the initial sound in some of the objects we can see and may even begin to write some labels. 

In Maths, we will be sorting into groups and will learn that collections of objects can be sorted into sets based on size, colour and shape. They will begin to understand that the same collection of objects can be sorted in different ways and will come up with their own criteria to sort objects, Our number of the week is number 5. Please help rite this number at home and count 5 claps, 5 toys etc. 

The children are really enjoying their night time topic. We will be learning why it is important to get enough sleep at night and making dream catchers.

Harvest Festival is at Church at 9:15 on Wednesday 2nd October. Can each child please bring a donation for the foodbank. You are very welcome to come and join us. We will be singing a special song.

It is  a 'Come and Join us' session also on Wednesday at 2pm. This is an opportunity for you to come and spend time with your child in the classroom.We would love it if you could come along!

Thank you for all your support at home with the children with reading and practising writing letters. Please can you record any reading/homework you do with your child in their blue diary.

As always, please come and ask if you are unsure about anything or have any questions. 

Thank you for all of your support.

We will begin to look at pictures of Mr Bear's house and the different rooms. We will then try to draw a floor plan of our own house. We will begin to write some labels to go on our plans. At this stage, we will be looking at initial sounds and what the word begins with. 

In Maths, our number of the week is number 4. We will be looking at groups of objects to see if we can estimate how many there are and then counting to check. We will continue to practise writing numbers.
