The end of another busy week in Beech Class! This week we have been reading the story Paddington at the Fair, making predictions, talking about our own experiences and drawing our favourite part. In Letters and Sounds we have continued to work on alliteration, identifying initial sounds and oral blending. This is quite tricky and the children would benefit from as much practice as possible. We will continue this next week. In Maths we have been looking at matching and sorting, talking about why things match (or don’t) and why we have sorted a set a particular way.
The children have also had lots of fun learning outside, making their own coconut shy game as well as playing skittles and hopscotch, taking turns and waiting patiently for their go.
I hope you are all enjoying seeing your child’s learning on Tapestry. If you have not had your activation email yet, please check your junk mail folder (it will have come from eylj.org and often ends up in junk). The link is only valid for 28 days then it will expire, so please have a look and activate it so you can keep up to date with everything your child is doing. If you are having any issues accessing Tapestry or have not received your activation email, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can double check I have the correct email address for you and resend the link if necessary.
Thank you to everyone who has returned their child’s completed One Page Profile. If you have not had chance to do it yet, could you please return it in your child’s book bag by the end of next week? Thank you.
On Monday afternoons we have a block of PE sessions with the Shrewsbury Town Coach Mr Lloyd, so on these days children can come into school dressed in their PE kits. We do try to do as much outside as we can so would encourage the children to wear jogging bottoms rather than shorts, and please ensure they have a jumper or cardigan to wear too as the weather begins to cool.
Have a lovely weekend.
Miss Jones 🙂
