Hello! Another busy week ahead in Owls class. 

In Literacy, the children will begin to think of other noises that may keep Mr Bear awake at night and use these to begin to make up their own narratives based on the Peace at Last story we have been reading in class. 

In Maths, we will be exploring the number 3 in greater depth and looking at stories and songs linked to the number 3. We will also be looking at different ways we can make 3 and learning more about triangles. 

We are very excited to be learning about night time animals and we have a very special surprise lined up for them next week. Keep your eyes peeled on twitter. 

Please record any reading your child does in their reading diary. We are continuing to focus on letter and number formation in school and we are practising writing our name everyday. If you could also practise at home it would be much appreciated. 

You should have received an appointment for Parents Evening on either Tuesday or Wednesday. If there are any problems or you are unsure of your time please come and ask.

Hope you all have a fanastic week and thank you for your continued support.

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 are so proud of all our Owls and how well they are settling into their new daily routine. 

We continue to have our phonics daily so please continue to practise letter formation at home. We are practising every day in school.

We have read our new class text 'Peace at last' and we will be looking at images  from the story and and trying to identify the inital sound. 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.

Any questions please come and ask.

Have a wonderful week.

We are so proud of how well the Owls have settled into their new class and they had a fantastic first full week at school. 

This week, we will be starting our new topic 'What happens when I fall asleep?' which is all about nightime.  On Tuesday, we wil be having a pyjama day so the children are invited to come to school in their pyjamas for the day!(Favourite night time cuddly toys are also invited!) Please can children wear normal school footwear, as we will be going outisde. We will be reading a story 'When the World is ready for bed' and using it to discuss our bedtime routines. We will also discuss things that help us to fall asleep at nght and share them with each other. The children will then create a picture with their something happy to help them fall asleep. 

In Maths, our number of the week is number 3. We will be practising counting and writing numbers correctly. 

As always, please come and ask if you have any questions.

Have a lovely week.

Mrs Campion & Mrs Hoskins.
