Rabbits

Welcome to Rabbit Class!

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 Hawkes and Mrs Duffy

 

We are grateful to the support you are giving your children at home with their phonics learning. The below video is a short guide to the pure sounds we teach.

A parents guide to the Pure Sound pronunciation 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 Rabbit 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.

Wear Yellow for Cystic Fibrosis!

Wear Yellow for Cystic Fibrosis! 1

Thank you all for taking part in Wear Yellow for Cystic Fibrosis! It meant a lot to Rabbit Class and the school as a whole. The children learnt more about what life is like with CF. We haven't managed to count up the donations as we were busy with prep for the Strawberry Fayre but we will be counting on Monday.  Don't we look great in Yellow?

Thank you all again :-) 

 

 

What wonderful trips to the Library!

The children have brought home library application forms! 

Thank you to the parents for helping :-)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Stars Wars book was very popular!

 

What an exciting week we have had! Look at our Super Veggies!

Thank fully our Super Veggies caught the Evil Pea!

 

 

 

We have had a very lovely week having RNLI and now the Police in to visit us! We have loved hearing about how they help people like us and what we should do if we need them. I wonder if your child can tell you one thing they have learned from our visitors?

Hannah the Nurse came to teach us all about her job. Rabbit class were very interested in her light up watch! We found out that lots of us have visited hospital. Hattie shared her sister really well.

We hope the children have been impressing you at home with their new phonic knowledge. Reading everyday (just for a few minutes) will build their confidence to apply their phonic knowledge. If you would like support with reading at home with your child please see a member of the team.

 

 

 

We are really pleased with how the children are settling in to school life.

We have had a cheeky visitor in Rabbit Class! Check out the photos below!
