This week we will start our Pick A Puppet Project so please keep an eye out for the home learning which will come home later this week!

We will be learning the names of different types of puppets and we will be sorting puppets.

We will be looking closely at the story of The Gruffalo. We will also be reading lots of different Julia Donaldson stories.

Project updates and Home Learning

We have been learning about the lifecycles and habitats of frogs and newts. Some children then went on to play a habitat game whilst others made a newt habitat from blocks. We used pasta to make a newt lifecycle and a butterfly lifecycle.

We labelled the parts of our body and made skeletons using paper straws.

We made our family from stones!

We explored our senses and tried to use language such as prickly, shiny, see-through, colourful, dark, bright, smooth, rough, bumpy, glittery. Can you support your child to use this vocabulary at home?

Meet the Teacher!

Thank you to everybody who managed to attend the ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting. We really are excited about the year ahead!

We have sent home a quick overview of the meeting to everyone. We also sent home a list of tricky words that we will be learning to read and spell this year. We also sent home a new phonics mat with the new sounds we will cover this year. Please check your child’s bag to make sure you have received these!
