This month the children in Class 6 have really settled into their school and year group routines. It has been truly delightful to see the children adapt so well to life and learning in Reception.
So far this term, we have been exploring our topic 'I am Special.' The children have observed their own features and created self-portraits, in both a pen and paper drawing and a collage using natural materials. We have discussed how we are all different and how we are all special.
Our special teddy bear friends, Sandy the dog and Tabby the cat, have already had a sleepover at many of the children's homes, as we continue to celebrate and reward good manners and working hard. Look out for more visits in the month ahead.
Thank you to everyone who completed our recent maths challenge, exploring the different numbers in our own worlds. This information will be used to celebrate numbers 1-10 on our maths wall inside the classroom. The children loved sharing their maths information with all of their classmates. It was lots of fun hearing each others maths stories.
Phonics handwriting sheets began to come home at the weekend. These will continue every Friday as the children learn new sounds each week. Please return the completed sheets to myself, so we can share our writing together.
In phonics, letter sounds will begin to come home this weekend too. More information on how to support your child learning phonics at home, will follow soon.
For October, we will link our topic 'I am Special,' with Autumn and Harvest. Nature bags will be sent home shortly to go foraging for signs of Autumn in your garden and the local area. What leaves and natural objects can you find on your Autumn hunt.
Thank you to all of Class 6 parents for a great start to the year.
