Welcome to our week in Peppard class.
It was lovely to meet you on Monday at the parent consultations. Please remember that this is a shared year between us and you. We love to hear about your children at home, how they are progressing and their achievements.
On Tuesday, we had a day thinking about Bonfire night. We talked about how we can keep safe when attending Firework displays. We then made safety posters. The children used this theme to make some lovely paintings and the glitter came out! We used magentic letters to practise reading words associated with bonfire night.
On Wednesday, we learned about the festival of Diwali. The children learned about the lead up to the festival and then made Rangoli patterns using chalk outside and decorated a hand in the style of Mehndi prints. After that, we learned about how the festival is celebrated and we made some Diva lamps using air drying clay. Our final activity was a movement session about the Diwali story of Rama and Sita. The children had some lovely music playing and they danced.
On Thursday the children had a day with Mr Steele whilst I attended the early years conference. They practised their tricky words, both reading and writing. They played some games and sang the tricky word song to reinforce their learning.
In maths this week, we have been playing a game called 'last one standing' which involves us counting up to a given number and the person who gets the number sits down. The children have also been practising counting to 100 using a variety of games and movement. We have also been learning about 'part part whole' which we started with a numberblocks episode and continued using activities. Some of the children are starting to record their answers.
