Can you spot yourself in the photos?......
Thank-you to those who came along to our 'Maths Afternoon' today. The atmosphere was lovely and we hope you all had a fun afternoon engaging in the maths activities with your children.
Can you spot yourself in the photos?......
Just to let you know, that the children had their photograph taken as a whole class today - this will be appearing in the Evening/Ipswich star in the next coming week or so, so keep an eye out! - they looked lovely!
This morning, we were lucky enough to go into the 'Big Top' tent on the field to take part in a 'Circus Skills' workshop with Matt.
We had a go at lots of different circus type activities such as plate spinning, juggling, the 'Diablo' the 'Poi' and walking along a tightrope!
We all had lots of fun and tried really hard showing off our new circus skills to each other.
All the adults were super impressed with how well we listened to Matt, and the perseverance we showed!
Thank-you Matt for teaching us our new circus skills!
Take a look at the photos and videos from our session.....
Just a quick note that parents evening reply forms need to be back with me ASAP in order for you to be in with a good chance of being allocated one of the time slots you have requested.
Thank-you to those of you who have already returned slips.
If you have any old holiday brochures which you no longer need, then Reception class would be very happy to take them off your hands- for a small activity I have planned. (The brochures can be for ANY destination).
Many thanks in advance!
At the beginning of this week we began learning our phonics. At the moment we are learning one sound per week, and so far we have learnt the sounds s, a, t and p, and today we practiced writing them.
Miss Rushbrooke showed us how to form the sounds correctly, by telling us to start at the green dot, and finish at the red dot. Miss Rushbrooke then laid out lots of large pieces of paper on the classroom floor and we all sat, kneeled or even laid on our tummies and practiced forming the sounds with felt tip pens. By the end of the session the pieces of paper were jammed packed full of all the sounds we have been learning.
Take a look......
We have also been learning our 'Jolly Phonics' song- which has a little rhyme and action to help the children learn each sound. Here is the you tube link if you would like to take a look yourselves....
First of all, I must apologize, it seems there was an error on the form that got sent out to you. The children take part in cooking on a Thursday AFTERNOON, not the morning, which i believe was printed.
Apologies for this!
On today's menu was.....Gingerbread Men/People. Mrs Rushbrooke told us a little bit about the ingredients which go into Gingerbread, and then we made the 'people' shapes using the cutters....before they went into the oven to bake. The classroom smelt lovely.....a bit like Christmas!
Thank-you Mrs Rushbrooke for helping us cook!
Take a look at our yummy results...
Now that the colder weather has unfortunately made an appearance, we would encourage parents to send children in with a coat. We still try to make use of our outside area in the colder weather, and of course the children still go out on the filed or playground at lunchtime. Please could you ensure your child's name is written somewhere inside (as with all items of clothing which come into school).
Thank-you to those who have sent a baby photo of your child in. If you have not yet sent in a photo, could we please have them by the end of this week so that they can go up with our portrait and hand-print display for our 'All about me' topic.
As soon as we have taken a photocopy of the photograph, we will send them home- we know how precious those lovely photos are.
This afternoon, we had our first cooking session. As our current topic is 'All about me' we made 'Biscuit faces'. We were each given two water biscuits and spread a little bit of butter on them. We then gave our faces hair, eyes, a nose and a mouth by using grated cheese, grated carrot, grapes, cucumber, cress and cherry tomatoes.
We had some fun creating our biscuit faces, and all the adults in the classroom said how fantastic and yummy they looked!
Thank you Mrs Rushbrooke for helping us with our cooking today!
