YR Poppies, porridge and perfect behaviour
Neil our Vicar was very impressed with our Year Rs today in our special Remembrance assembly. As he said to them at the end they have only been coming into assemblies for a few weeks and yet they sat beautifully and listened as well as any other class in the school. After all standing and observing a minute's silence, the Badgers proudly showed the rest of the school the Poppies they had made. Mrs Lever is hoping to take the children to see the Village war memorial on Tuesday so they can see where other people go to lay their poppies and wreaths.
Hopefully you have all received your green sound books by now. Last week we focussed on s, c, m and this week we have focussed on a, t, p. We have made videos to demonstrate how to write these letters but technical glitches seem to be preventing me from getting them on here. Please bear with me.
Thank you for ensuring your children were well prepared for our welly walk yesterday. It was a bit of a muddy one thanks to all the recent rain. We were looking at all the plants and animals we saw along the way but I think the highlight was a heron which circled over the common before landing in the stream up ahead. We will revisit our bit of the forest throughout the year to see how it changes in the different seasons.
We have had great fun acting out the story of Goldilocks and the Three bears and today we made porridge for the children to eat but first they had to choose what they wanted to add to it to make the perfect porridge for them. I was impressed that nearly all the children were happy to try the porridge, perhaps you'd like to try out their ideas at home! If you would like to retell the story with your child perhaps they would like to use the attached story map to help.
We have had a listen to the songs from our forthcoming Christmas Nativity play and look forward to learning the words for ourselves over the next few weeks.
You will see that Mrs Groves has been busy today planting out pansies with the children in our welly planters which she has attached to the fences of the YR playground.
Next week we will be celebrating Friendship week. On Friday as it is Children in Need we are hoping to host a teddy bear's picnic in Year R. So on Friday (17th November) if your child would like to bring in a teddy from home and a small contribution towards a class picnic (remembering no nuts) that would be great. As it says in the newsletter - for a £1 contribution towards Children in Need your child can come in their own clothes that day, spotty if you can.
