Owls

Welcome to Owls!

What a wonderful first full week we have had together!

 

Well done to all the children and grown ups too! We have been busy reading a book about Bugs starting school and we have been thinking about the similarities and differences between their school and ours. We went down to the meadow for the first time and listened carefully for the Bug School bell! The children spotted the apple tree laden with apples, Mrs Duffy picked some apples for us and we shared them together back in Year R.

 

smileyWe are running a reading and writing workshop on Thursday the 28th of September and would love to see you all theresmiley

 

Tapestry is now up and running. If you have any problems logging in or getting started on Tapestry please come and see us.

 

Quick reminders:

  • Year R P.E days are on Mondays and Tuesdays. If your child wears earrings please remove them for these days.

 

  • Please label all items of clothing. The children are now changing for P.E so naming trousers and T.shirts is really helpful.

 

Thank you very much.

Mrs McRoberts and Mrs Cullen

 

We are grateful for the support you are giving your child at home with their phonics learning. Here is a short video demonstrating the Pure Sounds we teach.

A parents guide to the pure sounds we teach

Listen to the 42 letter sounds of Jolly Phonics, spoken in British English. Each letter sound is clearly spoken twice, before an example word is given. Perfect for parents, teachers and children who aren't sure how to pronounce the letter sounds.

We are currently teaching Letters and Sound Phase 1 in phonics.  This phase is all about getting children ready to read.  We focus on listening to and discriminating sounds, remembering sounds and talking about sounds.  We make and copy rhythms using our bodies and instruments, we sing rhyming songs and play rhyming games, and we practise orally blending and segmenting the sounds in words.  Here is a link to the Phonics Play website where you will find some great games to help support your child learning these skills.

What a wonderful first week we have had in Owl Class.  The children have settled really well and we have been having lots of fun getting to know each other.  Thank you for bringing your super 'all about me' posters in - we have enjoyed sharing them in class. 

 

The children were very excited to take home their first reading book this weekend.  If you have any questions about reading at home with your child please don't hesitate to speak to any of the Year R team.  We are running a reading and writing workshop on Thursday the 28th of September and would love to see you all there.

 

Tapestry is now up and running.  If you have any problems logging in or getting started on Tapestry please come and see us. 

 

Have a lovely weekend. 

 

 

We hope you have had a lovely summer.  I have had a very busy summer looking after my Mum's dog Callie, painting my house and getting our classroom ready for the new term. 

 

 

Mrs Cullen and I are looking forward to coming to see you all at home this week.  If you have forgotten the time of your home visit or have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch through the school office.
