Yet another lovely week here in R1. We have been busy as always and the children continue to impress us with their ability to embrace lots of new things.
This week we have been matching and sorting in maths, learning the phonemes 'i' and 'n' in Floppy's Phonics. We are now beginning to blend the sounds we have learnt, to read some words. The children were very proud of themselves, as were Mrs White and I. As part of our topic this week, we have been learning about different kinds of homes, here in Stretford and all over the world.
The children made houses from a range of different resources. They particularly enjoyed the outdoor large construction area.
This week Thurston gracefully handed the medal over to Nell. Nell has blossomed from a quiet bud, into a confident flower. She is always engaged during the carpet sessions and is now eager to answer any questions.
We also had a visit from Mrs Spooner! The children were very excited to see her, as well as being extremely eager to tell her all about their learning.
Next week we will be sharing these books as part of our topic All About Me, All About You...
Why not share them with your child over the weekend? Just follow the links below...
The Girl Who Never Makes Mistakes
We'll begin to explore Growth Mindset for young children to help to develop a positive attitude towards learning and to help us to always try our best, keep trying, celebrate and learn from mistakes and to never give up!
In maths we will begin to recognise more and fewer and begin to explore measures. In phonics we will learn the phonemes 'm' and 'd'.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all at the 'Meet the Teacher' meet up on Monday 3rd October at 4.15 pm. Please try your best to attend.
Can I remind everyone that R1 has PE EVERY WEDNESDAY. Your child needs to come to school already dressed in their PE kit. You don't need to send their school uniform to school, the children will stay in their PE kit all day.
Here is a slide show of photos of the lovely week that we have had. I hope that you enjoy them.
