What brilliant fun Class R had yesterday with Glow in the Dark dodgeball! It was the very first time that our children had played a team game involving a ball and they were just super! The children listened carefully to Isaac and Mr Smith and played together really well. We were so proud! Well done children and thank you to our wonderful PTFA for the experience.
WARMING UP, LISTENING TO INSTRUCTIONS AND LEARNING TO PUT ON A SPORTS BIB:
WE'RE GLOWING UP IN THE DARK! WELL DONE CHILDREN - GREAT TEAM WORK!
What a lovely morning we had!
Today we thought about the animals that live on our school field and also Santa's reindeer who will hopefully be visiting soon. We made some bird food/reindeer food mixture and used our parachute to deliver it onto the field! What fun!
We then made footprints in the flour - we thought it looked like snow - we then wished really hard for snow - we crossed all our toes and fingers!
I'm a big believer in the power of song - not only for enjoyment and enrichment but to help to learn facts and new words.
Here are two songs which sing the Phase 3 tricky words.
We have been listening to them in Class R to help us to learn the tricky words.
They're not going to trick us are they children?
Here is a link of short videos to help to revise the phase two phonemes:

Here are some brilliant interactive games to help with the different sounds in the phases of phonics:
This term - I think it is safe to say that Welly Wednesday has certainly made a splash and been a huge hit! The children have been brilliant and they have enjoyed putting their puddle suits and wellies on and going out to explore our wonderful environment. We have learnt so much about the environment and about one another. We've explored how the seasons have changed from late Summer to early Autumn and then into late Autumn and observed how our environment has changed over that time. Next year will bring Winter, Spring and early Summer - we can't wait to explore more and more and see what delights Mother Nature offers us.
Thank you children for your enthusiasm, enjoyment and energy - just brilliant!
AND the winners with 19 comments are Class 2!
Well done children. Please keep reading and enjoying your books and enjoy using your special bookmarks.
A BIG well done and thank you to all of the children and staff that commented.. There are some beautiful books being read and it's a great list to look at for some recommendations.
A very big well done for Sam today as he became our Star of the Week. Sam is always the person who is tidying up right until the very end in Class R - he always makes sure things go back where they belong and cares a lot about our resources that we use. Sam also impressed us this week when he was reading the dinner menu and noticed the 'or' digraph in the word 'pork' and then read the word - good boy for spotting the phonics we are learning and sharing it with your friends.
