Welcome to Red Parrots!

We hope you have been having lots of fun with us at Livingstone! 

We worked so hard in the Autumn term and are ready for the challenges of the Spring Term! 

Here is our learning journey for Autumn 2; just look how much we managed to do!

This half term our topic is 'Who Can Help Me?' where we will be learning all about different professions including Police, Doctors, Dentists, Post People and Vets among others.

Over the next week we will be learning about Vets and how to care for animals. We will be thinking about how to care for animals and having a visit from some real pets! We will be continuing to learn about money and practise paying for items. We will also be naming animals and learning about alliteration. 

To round off our topic we will be writing about the jobs we would like to do when we are older.

It is Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 5th February.

Here is a video which explains how to stay safe online.

 

For your information here is the 'Development Matters' document to show the statutory requirements for the Early Years Foundation stage.

 

Working with parents is extremely important to us and we love hearing about what your children are doing outside of school. If your child does something at home (or out and about!) that you think we would like to hear about please fill in a 'News from home' slip and we will display the news in the classroom. Slips are available in the classroom or to download below.

Some reminders...

Please remember to keep PE kits in school every day. The children will take them home at half term. PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING!

We had a lovely time meeting Maja the Labrador and Tyler the Papillon. We learned all about how to look after our pets and what dogs need to stay healthy.

 

Happy Chinese New Year! (Tuesday 5th February)

Click below for some videos about the celebration

 

We had a great time when the snow came!

 

We had a fantastic time at the Wavendon Stables Theatre on the 18th December watching 'Tabby McTat'. We loved travelling on the coach and watching the all singing, all dancing show! We were extremely well behaved and were a credit to Livingstone Primary School. We thoroughly enjoyed our first school trip!

This is is the overview of our learning for the year.

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 in assembly!

Remember to complete your child's learning plan with them in the morning when they come into school. This is a good opportunity to help them practise writing their name and think about their learning in school!

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.
