Library visit

Reception had a very enjoyable visit to the library this morning. They were very well behaved and made us extremely proud. A huge thank you to the parent helpers and all of you who volunteered. All the children have a fantastic book to share at home – happy reading over half term. 

Counting on…

Today we honed our counting on  skills. You don’t say the number you are on but just say the next numbers in the sequence. Each child has brought home the game we played. Start on start which is zero. Then choose add 1 or add 2. You are not allowed to say the number you are on so you say 1,2. Hope that’s 

not too confusing, ask your child!

Wheelchair triumph

A part of you-nique week, Oak Class were given the opportunity to take part in wheelchair basketball. The children learned how to climb safely in and out of a chair, how to manoeuvre around the court and how to catch and throw a ball while moving. The children showed a remarkable confidence with the new skills and applied their existing knowledge of team work and tactics. The leaders commented on the positive approach and engagement of the children and I was proud to see their enthusiasm and cooperation even with this new skill. Well done Oak Class!

Elm class

As part of You-Nique week we learnt how to sign sounds in phonics. ┬áThis made us aware of how lucky we were to be able to hear and speak normally. It was very tricky and quite a challenge! This is how to sign ‘x’.
