Welcome to Penguins!
This half term our topic is 'What's growing in the garden?'
For the first two weeks we will be learning about the stories of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and 'Jaspers Beanstalk'.
In Maths we will be learning about the numbers 9 and 10.
Please log on to Purple Mash with your children's log in which should be stuck in their reading diary.
There are helpful hints on this page if you get stuck https://help.2simple.com/parent-resources
or ask one of the team.
Watch the video below of us enjoying our first PE lesson with Mr T!
We have been learning about 2d shapes; circles, triangles, squares and rectangles. We went on a 'shape hunt' around school to see what shapes we could find - there were so many!
We had a fantastic book week! A 'Carnival of Stories' story hunt taking us from Trinidad to Africa and a journey through the deep dark wood in forest school to meet 'The Gruffalo'!

PE and Dance will be on TUESDAYS and FRIDAYS. The children will be expected to come to school in their PE kits on these days.
Please also send a spare set of uniform and underwear to keep in school.
Your child may bring their own bottle to school (water only!)
PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING AND BELONGINGS!
Please take time to read with your child EVERY DAY - little and often is best!
Please also sign the children's diary so that they can receive stickers which lead to prizes!
Please also help us to help the children by reinforcing the sounds being taught at school. Phonics is the method by which we teach reading and writing. Here are some videos which demonstrate the correct pronunciations.

We are very pleased with how our indoor provision is looking! We are continuing to improve it to make it the best environment for Penguins to learn in!
