Happy New Year from the Squirrel Class!
The first term was very enjoyable for everyone. The children have formed a lovely group and gestures of kindness and friendship abound amongst them all. Through music, games, and practice, the children have become confident with the Phase 2 of our phonics programme, and are ready to learn the Phase 3 sounds. Language related to addition and substraction is becoming embedded in their play. Not only that, they have also grown in confindence through activities such as their performance in the Nativity play, their classroom staging of Room on the Broom and other stories, and their trip to the Pantomime, which they thoroughly enjoyed.
This term, we are looking forward to exploring water from many different angles, experimenting with ice, different capacity containers, and investigating what we can find in the river, to name a few.
Autumn term 2
We have had a wonderful first half term. They children have settled into the new routines, friends and environment and we have started our phonics journey. This term we will cover all the single sounds in Phase 2, learning the songs as we go all along. In addition, we will be finding out all about Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas discovering how different people celebrate in different ways.
Autumn term 1
Welcome to our class! We hope you have had a restful summer. We are about to start our learning journey. We'll have a few weeks for the children to settle in and become familiar with their new environment, friends and adults, before we start our phonics journey. This half term is "all about me".
