Please could all mums send in a photo of themselves for a little surprise we are making for mother's day.
We have a new role play area in the classroom. This half term we have set up a shoe shop. This fits in with our new topic ‘Traditional Tales’ and the story we are reading next week ‘The elves and the shoemaker.’
Do you have any unwanted items that you could donate to enhance the area?
We could make good use of shoes - any size/ gender/ style, shoe boxes, tape measures and shoe shop leaflets/catalogues.
As well as being great for language development we are also hoping to practise lots of maths and literacy in this area. We will be comparing shoes by size. Fitting shoes into different size boxes, talking about similarities and differences. We will be measuring our feet. We will be ‘paying’ for our shoes with money, answering the phone, writing down shopping lists, learning to tie laces, reading numbers for different shoe sizes, designing our own shoes.....
The first week back after half term we will be learning about Chinese new year. Red is a lucky colour for Chinese new year so please bring 'something red' for Show and Tell.
Have a great half term!
Our topic this week to end the first half of the term is 'Pancake day'. We will be reading the story 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' and making and tasting our own pancakes.
Show and Tell on Wednesday is favourite foods. The children can bring a picture, photo or packaging of their favourite food or the food itself.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the parents evenings this week.
The children have been very busy at home as well as at school finding out lots of dinosaur facts and creating some lovely arts and crafts. We made eggs from papier mache to put our dinosaurs in and we made fossils from salt dough. The standard of homework has been fantastic, well done Pandas!
Our Show and Tell is a bit different this week. I’ve asked the children to ‘Tell a joke’. They can learn a joke to tell or bring it in a joke book. We have set a challenge, who can tell the funniest joke and make everyone laugh!
The children have really enjoyed our Dinosaur topic and we have had some fantastic homework, well done! We have learnt all sorts of interesting facts and we have made some great crafts. This week we are finding out about and making fossils. We are also hoping to make our own Dinosaur feet so we can go on a Dinosaur stomp!
Parents evenings are on the 7th and 8th February. Please sign up for a slot via the school website. If you can not find and suitable time please come and speak to me so we can arrange another time to meet.
Our story this week is 'Dinosaur Roar'.
Please bring something green for Show and Tell.
