Greetings Platypuses!

This week we have begun to learn about the rights of a child. Herbert Morrison is very proud to be a Gold Award Rights Respecting school and it is very important that you learn about your rights. Children all over the world have the same rights but sadly they are not always respected. We will be learning more about your rights every week. 

We have started our phonics learning and have been practising the following letter sounds:

s

a

t

We have also been learning these tricky words:

I

the

Practise these and we will be learning new sounds next week.

Some of you are practising blending and segmenting words, the following video will help you to practise. 

Next week we will be learning about our bodies. Which different body parts can you already name? Can you learn some more this weekend? 

We are still working on developing our green behaviour in school. Have a listen to these songs which will help you to remember how to make good choices

Last but not least our lovely school nurse came to visit us to talk to us about hand washing and show us how important it is! Can you tell your adults what we did with Miss Alba which was super fun and meant we really had to wash our hands? 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing and playing! This week make sure you comment on the blog! I wonder who will be first to win a prize for commenting…

It will be Yellow Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please bring one toy/picture/item of choice if you would like to. 

I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! Please come wearing your PE kit! 🙂

Love,

A creative week :)

Greetings Platypuses!

Finally we are all together! We now have a full class of 29 and know our colour teams (I will send home a colour team list on Monday). I have sent home a new Elephant Reminder which shows that Show and Tell is now on Tuesday afternoons. Due to the moving around of our class music lesson I had to re-work the timetable hence the change of day.

We have begun to settle into a school routine, this includes starting our phonics and maths lessons and practising important behaviour and good manners such as raising our hand on the carpet when we want to talk, taking turns, forming a sensible line, using kind hands and words and of course making good green choices.

Here are some of the stories we have shared this week.

This one was very popular and caused a lot of laughter! 

Who is in your family? What do you like to do together? 

What did you like about these books? Was one of them your favourite? Why

Practise tricky wordsI‘ and ‘the‘ and the letter sound ‘s‘.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing and playing! This week make sure you comment on the blog! I wonder who will be first to win a prize for commenting
