Beech Class weekly Newsletter 17.3.23

Another busy week has flown by and ended on a high with our Comic Relief Red Nose Day celebrations. Thank you so much for your efforts and donations. The children looked fab – you can see our class picture on Tapestry.
In phonics we have continued recapping level three sounds, practising reading and writing them in words and sentences. We have also learned two tricky words “all” and “are”. These have been added to their sound bags along with last week’s tricky word “they” for them to keep practising at home.

In Drawing Club this week we read the story of The Three Little Pigs. The children enjoyed drawing the wolf, their version of the brick house, an escape vehicle for the pigs and what the wolf would do with the pigs when he finally caught them! We had some very interesting suggestions for that, ranging from eating them in a pie/cake, to sending them to the moon, to taking them to the cinema to watch a movie! 😂 There has been some super writing alongside their drawings and children are becoming more and more confident to have a go on their own which is brilliant.
They have been fantastic at remembering and using our ‘get up, stand up’ words this week too. Constructed, sturdy, flimsy, obliterate, scarper and celebrate. Why not try saying the words to them to see if they can show you the action then do the actions back to them and see if they can remember the words? They are so proud showing other adults in school when they remember them and use them in context.

In Maths we have been consolidating our knowledge of number bonds for numbers to 10 through playing games, including hidden number games and looking at different arrangements and patterns. We will continue to do this next week through independent activities as we complete whole school assessment week.

We had 12 children choosing a prize from the lucky dip box this week for reading 5 times. A massive well done to you all. The children did say what if we could get 20 next week? So. Who’s up for the challenge? 😉

If they have not already told you, please remember to look in your child’s bag for a white envelope addressed to someone special for Sunday. We do hope you like it and you have a very lovely day.

Have a good weekend.
