We enjoyed our Autumn walk to the library gardens this week, we were very lucky with the weather and the children were able to spot many of the items on our Autumn check list. We have also met with our Year 6 reading buddies to share books. We enjoyed listening to them read us stories
We hope you enjoy carrying out some of our Autumnhomework activities and we look forward to seeing your creations. Have a lovely half-term holiday.

We have had yet another busy week! We have had fun outside practising our skipping, jumping, hopping and balancing skills. We have enjoyed water play- investigating capacity and floating and sinking, being construction workers and designing models and making music using the boomwhackers !
We are continuing with our Autumn themed work including counting conkers and matching the correct numeral and Numicon number tile. Some of us also practised adding up and taking away. We are looking forward to our Autumn walk to the Library Gardens next Tuesday.
Thank you to those of you that came to our phonics workshop we hope you found it interesting and beneficial. If you wish to look at the power point again you can find it on the school website >about us>curriculum>reception.
Have a super weekend.

This week we have enjoyed story writing. Our teachers have scribed for us and we have written the sounds or words we know. All our friends have enjoyed listening to the stories- we feel very proud authors! We also pretended to be waiters and waitresses using our clip boards to take orders.
We have also enjoyed spending time outside playing games with the parachute and on the astro.
On Friday, we joined the rest of the school to take part in our first celebration assembly. The children listened really well.
Thank you to everyone who donated items for our harvest collection.
Don’t forget our phonics workshop on Tuesday 10th October at 9:15 am in the lower school hall. Please do try to come along to find out how we teach phonics in school and hopefully gain some tips for helping your child at home!
We hope you have a good weekend!

During their first full week at school the children have enjoyed exploring the outside areas and other Foundation Stage classrooms during ‘free-flow’.
We have been thinking about Autumn, thank you to all those children who brought items in for our discovery tray- there is still time! We have been leaf printing with Autumn colours and using the magnifying glasses to explore all our special finds.
We have also had a chance to paint self-portraits, looking in the mirror to check our eye and hair colour! We will be making frames to mount them in!
We have also enjoyed our snack-times!!
Thank you for supporting your child with their reading and we hope you can attend our reading and phonics workshop.

The children have had a great week this week. We have been busy drawing our families, exploring our outside areas and the resources in the classroom. We have enjoyed music and working on the computers in the ICT suite.
The children have impressed us with the way they have been coming into class independently in the mornings and with how quickly they have become familiar with the lunchtime routines.
Next week, we plan to set up an autumn interest table with conkers, leaves, pine cones etc. We would love to add any autumn ‘finds’ you may come across at the weekend.
The children have settled in very well this week. They have had fun making new friends and exploring all the activities available both inside and outside the classroom. We have talked about school routines.
Your child has a pack of information in their book bags today and we look forward to working with you and your child this year. Have a lovely weekend.
Love from Seahorse Class team
