Friday 20th October

This week we introduced our Superhero Challenges for Continuous Provision by having a Superhero topic. The children were gripped on Monday as they discovered some of our toys had been taken as a note and a picture had been left. They then found various clues as to who had taken them. We’re hoping we can save them next week and they’re safe and well.

The children have been making superhero masks and capes and using these during role play. Freeing superheroes using fine motor activities such as cracking a code using numicom and numbered locks and unthreading tied up superheroes. Creating wanted posters to help catch the villain and designing their own superhero costumes. We have been discovering various superhero powers and then looking at everyday superheroes such as the police.

This week in maths we have been discovering Numicon and have been playing lots of games in order to recognise it by sight. Numicon is multi-sensory approach to teaching maths and is used in various ways. We will use this throughout the year as a teaching aid.

This week our Learning Super Hero went to Evie for being a supportive friend and helping others with their learning.

Our attendance this week is: 99% this is amazing! Let’s try and get 100% next week.

We are running very short on knickers/underpants and socks/tights so if you have any spare at home please could you kindly donate them. Thank you in advance.

Home Learning

Each week on a Friday we send home a blue Home Learning Journal. This will contain an activity to complete at home over the weekend or in the week (please try to use a page a week), but the books must be back in school by Thursday so we can get them ready again. Please encourage where possible your child to show their independence. We share the books with the class and the children will receive a Dojo for their learning.

This week… Superheroes in training… Can you help out your grown-ups at home by doing small jobs such as tidying your room or helping cook dinner. Write, draw or take a picture to share with the class.

This half term we have had a great turn out for the return of home learning books and reading books. Thank you for your support at home.

Have a lovely weekend, see you on Monday,

Miss Arrowmith and Miss Leonard
