A HUGE Thank You for all the food brought in for todays Harvest Festival. We really have some thoughtful and wonderful parents. Class Hughes alone brought in enough food to fill the class lunch trolley.
When we arrived at the hall, we had enough food to fill the square allocated to Reception, plus fill up other year group's squares too. ENOUGH TO MAKE MR STOCK SING!! (Check out Mr Stock's Blog and hopefully you will be able to watch too!).
This week we are singing to learn the sounds made by letters. We are singing the sounds for
s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d.
Have a go at home.
Friday was a great day of fun, cake and sweets. A big thank you to Sophia's mum for the wonderful cake & Finlay's mum for the sweets. Two more 5 year olds in the class!!!
This week we have been counting forwards and backwards to 10, with the help of "Zero" the Superhero.
Start with two clenched fists in a superhero pose- represents 'Zero'.
Use fingers to count up and back to 10 and finish in the superhero pose.
Zero, Zero Superhero,
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Zero, Zero Superhero!!!!!
Every morning before we start our lessons, we spend 10 minutes doing 'Basic Skills. A 10 minute session practising all the basic skills we will need to learn to be successful at number, reading and writing.
This week we have been concentrating on counting to 20. Have a go at counting to 20 with this weeks song.
Yesterday we had great fun decorating and making some giant ears. Today we used them to go on a listening walk around the school.
We discovered to be good listeners we have to:
- Use our ears!
- Stay quiet
- Walk carefully
- Sit Still
- Look at what we are listening to
Today we all got changed for PE. With only a little help everyone changed from their uniform into their PE kits. We even practised how to fold up our clothes and put them in our bags to keep them tidy.
Mr Childs taught us to play games with a large parachute.
We had lots of fun!!
A big and warm welcome to all the new children to class Hughes.
A very successful day for all.
Thank you to parents for allowing your children to come in all by themselves! This was very helpful in settling the children into their everyday early morning routines. Plus we had no tears, by the children at least.
Over the next few weeks the children will be learning the school and class rules & routines, plus many new skills. If your child comes home and is confused or there is something we send home you don't understand, please come and speak to any member of the Hughes team.
