Seahorse Class Weekly News
What a fun week! We started the week by making festive decorations and enjoying a delicious Christmas dinner. To our surprise, Santa visited Leigh North Street Primary School and left a little treat for the children. Later that day, Seahorse learnt how to play some Christmas games and listened to festive stories.
Seahorse Class have enjoyed listening, talking and writing about the Christmas Nativity story. We have discussed Christmas traditions and how it is celebrated around the world. The children have worked hard to develop their use of time language by using ‘first’, ‘next’, ‘then’, ‘before that’ and ‘after that’ to describe their daily routine.
Another fun but busy week in Seahorse Class. We have enjoyed our free flow sessions: making dens, riding the bikes and scooters, being part of a band and building towers. In the classroom we have been busy ordering our numbers, telling 1 less stories using ‘first’, ‘then’ and ‘now’ and using our phonic knowledge to write CVC words and simple sentences.
It has been a very busy week in Seahorse Class. We began the week wearing odd socks in support of anti-bullying and talked about the fact that everyone is unique and that it’s ok to be different. We also started our mini topic about vegetables. We used our phonic knowledge to write shopping lists and also enjoyed tasting different vegetables. Carrot was the favourite in our taste test. Everyone helped to peel and chop vegetables to go into our vegetable soup, which made our classroom smell wonderful as it cooked! Finally we got to eat our delicious soup.
We really enjoyed exploring the school garden and looking for signs of autumn. We used time connectives such as first, then and next to create a recount of our autumn walk. We worked collaboratively to create firework art and then added words to describe the sounds of fireworks. We observed the two minute silence on Remembrance Day and finished the week in our pyjamas in support of Children in Need. Yet another busy week in Seahorse class!
Seahorse have thoroughly enjoyed their first week back at school. The children were very sensible during their first swimming lesson and loved exploring the pool. In class we have been learning about Bonfire Night and how to stay safe. We have explored the concept of more and less by comparing two groups and started learning the properties of 2D shapes. The children have even created their own firework rocket using 2D shapes.
We have enjoyed exploring our exciting new P.E. equipment. The children have been practising their hopping, skipping, galloping, side-stepping and balancing skills.
What a busy time we have had this term ! A big thank you for your continued support.
Have a great half-term and see you soon.
Seahorse have enjoyed the start of our new ‘Autumn’ topic. We have discussed the signs of autumn and read lots of autumn themed stories. Thank you for the interesting autumn objects we have enjoyed exploring and making observations using our magnifying glasses.
Seahorse Class have continued to enjoy our Powermaths sessions. This week we have been making number patterns using a ten fame and counters. The children were very excited about meeting Mrs Lawrence who taught them some yoga positions and breathing techniques. We have also learnt lots of different ways of moving during the ‘The Daily Mile Destination’ challenge.
What a lovely week!
Seahorse Class have coped amazingly with their first full week at school. The children have absolutely loved the Powermaths lessons, which have focused on one -to-one correspondent counting skills. We have enjoyed listening to the Jolly phonics stories and learning the actions and songs for the letter sounds s a t p and i. During PSHE we have discussed a range of emotions and communicated a time that we felt happy and sad. The children then created a large happy emoji to remind everyone to 'share a smile'.
Well done Seahorse Class! I am very proud of you.

Seahorse Class have enjoyed staying for lunch and copied well at playtime. It has been lovely to watch the children get to know each other and play with their peers in Coral and Starfish Class. In class, we have thought of rules to help us stay safe and discussed what to do if we need help. Each children has had the opportunity to paint a portrait of themselves and shared their ‘All about me’ booklet with an adult.

The children have had a fantastic first week at school and we are very proud of how quickly they are picking up the daily routine. All the children have enjoyed getting to know each other whilst exploring the classroom and outdoor provision. Well done Seahorse Class! We can’t wait for all the children to be together next week.
