Glow in the Dark Dodgeball!

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.

I spy a special someone beginning with S!

Santa gif

Look who we saw walking across our school field yesterday!  Yes Santa!  He looked a bit lost as he was looking at a map!  He gave us the biggest wave!  Take care Santa!

Thinkuknow

Access to new tech over the winter period can provide new opportunities for children and young people but also present risks. 

Thinkuknow's guide for parents looks at how you can support your child to be safer online this season by focusing on 3 key areas: viewing,

sharing,

chatting and friending.

Welly Tuesday!

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!

Phase 3 tricky words

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:

Christmas is a coming...!

Christmas-38

 

Over the last few weeks, we've been very busy getting ready for Christmas in Class R:


 

Wonderful Welly Wednesdays

Giphy-8

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!

Class R's Star of the Week

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.
