A big thank you for supporting our Harvest food collection for Harp so generously this year. We have continued to think about Harvest this week, using puppets to act out the Little Red Hen story, sequencing the story and writing captions to go with our Little Red Hen artwork. Our maths work has involved comparing sets of objects and saying which has more or fewer. We have been busy blending sounds together and learning the Jolly Phonics sounds u, e, h and r. We hope you all have a relaxing half term holiday
This week we have been having fun acting out the story of The Little Red Hen and talking about the importance of helping others. We have also been learning about what happens at harvest time and why people celebrate with Harvest Festivals. Our Jolly Phonics sounds this week have been c,k,o and g. We have been busy developing our subitising skills by learning to recognise number dot patterns without counting.

We have been busy exploring our school grounds, checking in on our school chickens and meeting some of the people who help us at school. We even got to visit Mr Hautler in his office! Reading the story of Elmer the elephant has helped us think about how we are all special and unique. We supported the ‘Young Minds’ charity on Friday by thinking about the different feelings and emotions we experience each day. We learnt the Jolly Phonics actions and songs for the sounds m, n and d this week.

This week we have been enjoying staying at school all day. We had lots of free-flow time and had fun exploring new resources, both inside and outside the classroom and meeting up with our friends in Coral and Seahorse classes. We have been learning the Jolly Phonics sounds “s,a,t,i,p” and loved singing the songs and remembering the actions to accompany each sound.

We have enjoyed staying for lunch at school this week and meeting new friends in the playground after lunch. We have been practising following the hands and feet trail which guides us back to our playground after we have eaten. We have also impressed our teachers by coming into class happily each morning and by remembering our class rules. We are looking forward to being at school full time next week.
This week the children have enjoyed meeting their new class teachers and making new friends. They have explored their classrooms and the outside areas and have been introduced to some of our class routines. We are looking forward to the children staying for lunch next week. Have a lovely weekend.
