Caterpillars

Caterpillars 

 

We are becoming super readers in Caterpillar class! Look how much we have been practising. Don't forget adults at home that we have our new reading records. Please record when your children read with you at home and let us know how they are getting on.  This will help us to improve our reading fluency.  Remember our new reading record also shows you all the sounds we need to know by the end of the year.  

 

 

 

 

Look at what we have been up to this term: 

In Maths we have been learning how to continue a pattern. With this in mind, we made candy cane tree decorations to sell at the Enterprise fair. We had to look and think really carefully as the pattern was tricky to remember. 

 

 

 

We have also been learning all about shapes. We now know about flat shapes and fat shapes. Some us are so clever, we can even make and identify shapes as tricky as a square based pyramid. 

 

P.E

 

Please note that we have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday ensure your child has their coloured PE top, PE hoodie,  black bottoms, hair tied up and jewellery removed on these days so that they are ready and safe to take part. Thank you for your cooperation.  

 

The children have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in Forest Schools this term and have gained so much from being outside (even the days where it was rather wet). They have built dens, made magical wands and helped to create lots of mucky muddy recipes in the mud kitchen. We will have a break from Forest School learning next term but for Caterpillar class it will start again take with another set of sessions in term 4. We will send out a letter later in the term to advise you on days and timings. 

 

 

 
 

AUTUMN TERM 

 

Foundation

This term we have been learning the story of The Jolly Postman. We have loved playing in our Post Office role play area and even had a real postman come in to answer our questions. We learnt all about why they wear red and how they deliver their letters. It was fascinating!

 

Information for parents. 

 

Once the children are settled into school routines, they will be given a picture book in the first instance.  They can use their imagination to  make up a story based on the illustrations, a perfect bedtime story.  When the children begin Phonic sessions and have learnt the first set of sounds, they will be given a book with simple CVC words. 

 

STAR OF THE WEEK

Star of the Week will be awarded to a different child every Friday afternoon for being a superstar all week! It could be for their attitude to learning, behaviour or producing outstanding work (to name a few!). They will then take home the class bear for the weekend and write about their adventures in our class book. 

 

 

 

We have been learning to count. 

 

In Caterpillar class we have been learning to count to 10 and beyond. We can now count up to 20 orally and we are great at counting objects that do not move. This term, one of the things we are learning to do is to find one more and one less of a number and we are doing really well. Some of us are even able to order numbers beyond 10 now. Make sure you ask us at home and we can show you how clever we are. 

Every child matters, every moment counts.

We are learning the story of 'Going on a Bear Hunt' for the first few weeks to familiarise children with sequential language, repetition and rhyme in stories. We went on a bear hunt and have been counting how many bears we can find around the classroom. 

We all had fun during our Multi-cultural days. In Foundation we learnt about Australia.

Everyone had a fantastic time at our Science event last term. It was lovely to see the new children and our foundation children exploring all of the activities. A massive thank-you to the EYFS team and Stepping Stones Pre-School for organising it.

Stepping Stones Nursery children have enjoyed the chance to become familiar with our EYFS setting. Every Monday and Wednesday the children will have the opportunity to use our outside environment helping their transition to our EYFS in September.

After School Club is now running and there are still spaces.

We've loved our bear hunt. We found lots of lovely bears. Some had really good hiding places!
