We have been learning about the story 'Chicken Licken'. The children have really enjoyed making up their own rhyming words for different animals, which has been the focus for writing.
In maths we have been doubling amounts. The children have been exploring doubling using farm animals.
"Double 4 pigs is 8 pigs altogether."
"Double 4 is 8"
"There are 4 pigs in a barn and 4 pigs outside. There are 8 pigs altogether."
In phonics the children have learnt the diagraphs ch, sh, th, ng, ai and ee. In maths the children have been learning about adding (finding the total), How many do we have altogether? In literacy children have been learning about the story 'Stickman'.
We have now started learning the songs for our Christmas Nativity.
Now that it is getting colder, please ensure that your child has warm clothes for outside play at lunchtimes. Every item needs to have your child's name written inside.

The children have been creating a new garden by digging holes for stepping stones and planting fruit trees and shrubs. They have been learning about worms and how to be gentle, how to use equipment safely, the parts of a plant/tree, changes that happen to trees and plants, noticing shapes in everyday life, filling buckets with soil and comparing the weight of them.
The children enjoy signing the ‘Jolly Phonics’ songs which are available on YouTube if you would like to sing them at home. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwBG-zmWuUk
The children are all settling in very well and really enjoying their activities at school! They have been learning all about their new environment, how to explore it and making lots of new friends!
