Next week The Gruffalo!
As part of our Into the Woods topic we will be reading The Gruffalo next week. The dental nurse is coming on Wednesday to chat to us about looking after our teeth. The colour of the week is green and the sound is 'd.' What a busy week it will be!
We've been super busy in PE today (photos to follow). Getting changed has been a big part of the session! But we have also been learning new skills, using our big/small muscles and developing our listening skills too. Please help us by encouraging your child to dress/undress independently at home. You can make it into a game, can they dress before the timer goes off? Can they dress before you? If that's too much let them pick one part of their outfit to put on - just the t shirt or shorts?
During the week we made our first trip to the Secret Garden. We learnt about the rules of the garden, then we played a game 1,2,3 where are you? It was then time to investigate our surroundings. We are looking forward to going again.
Next week we start our topic. Over the next few weeks our topic title is 'Into The Woods.' Starting with The Owl Babies. We will be learning a bit about owls, making owls and looking for owls in the Secret Garden. With the leaves starting to change colour, we will begin to think about Autumn and look for signs that it is on its way!
Well done you've made it through the first week!
The children are settling in to the routines and already starting to remind me when something needs to be done!
Here's an idea of what we've been up to this week.
Library will start on Tuesday 19th September. If you'd like a book for your child please bring a blue book bag in.
Thank you to all the families who invited us into their homes this week. It was a great opportunity to see your child/ren in their home environment, where they feel most comfortable. We enjoyed hearing about all the things they like to do.
