Our topic this term is ‘Transport’. Your topic homework is to make a vehicle that can do something special using things you have at home, such as cardboard boxes, tubes, bottles, milk tops etc. It may be a ‘flying bus’, a ‘robot boat’ or a ‘dinosaur car’. Talk to your child about what they are learning and discuss what special vehicle they might like to create. Please bring your finished model clearly labelled with your name into school on Monday 21st November to show Miss Harvey, Mrs Singh and the other children. We can’t wait to see all of your fantastic creations!
Communication and Language
In our Communication and Language groups we have been learning all about different types of ‘Transport’. We have been exploring the story ‘The Naughty Bus’. One day we had a surprise delivery, it was a present for us to unwrap. It was our very own ‘Naughty Bus’, he has been getting up to all sorts of mischief in the classroom, we have found the Naughty Bus in lots of weird and wonderful places.
In maths we are working on reciting numbers in order, recognising numerals and 1:1 counting.
In phonics we have been going on listening walks in our school environment to tune into sounds all around us. We have been learning to play different musical instruments and have been exploring different ways to play them. We have enjoyed learning an African chant ‘Kye Kye Kule’ along with actions.
Things to remember:
Please ensure your child has spare clothes with them in school at all times, including underwear and socks. It is very important that we are able to change your child and make them comfortable if any toileting accidents occur and especially now as we’re approaching the winter months.
As the weather is getting colder, please ensure children wear suitable clothing, i.e. a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves. Please ensure children’s items are clearly labelled.
We operate an open door policy, therefore please feel free to come in and speak to me about any worries or concerns you may have about your child or your child’s learning. If you would like a more in depth discussion, we can arrange a mutually convenient time and date.
Thank you for your support
