Rocket Class Weekly News 17th September

Mrs Clegg - 17 Sep 2021

Splashing around!
 
Firstly, I am delighted to share one of our class photos with you, as promised last week:

 

 
We do have Nursery friends and Year Twos joining us at different times too, but I haven't managed to get everybody together yet!  This is also a great time to introduce our new 'hobbit hole.'  It was kindly donated by Wendy Thickett from Bilton Grange, and it has been dismantled and spruced up by Mr Petchey and his willing family of helpers!  Thank you also to Mrs Wakeford for sourcing the astroturf.  A full list of thank yous will be in the first newsletter of the school year.

What a busy week we have had in Rocket Class!  We have started sharing a new book, 'The Everywhere Bear' by Julia Donaldson.  We started just by looking at one of the pages inside the book and making predictions about the story.  The children had some fabulous ideas!  The following day we we looked at the front cover and discussed the title and the illustration.  The children tried really hard to communicate clearly and confidently- our 'golden thread' this half-term.

We have just got to the part of the story where Matt has realised that he has dropped the 'Everywhere Bear.'  The children all know that the Everywhere Bear has dropped out of Matt's bag...and is heading down a manhole cover......oh no!  We then had a fascinating conversation about drains, sewers...and you can probably guess what else!  We really can't wait to find out what is going to happen next.

In Maths this week we have been trying hard to count forwards and backwards from 10.  Reception are also trying really hard to count with 1:1 correspondence, which means they touch each object as they say a number.  You could support this at home by asking "how many carrots have you got left on your plate?" or "how many buttons are on your cardigan?"

Finally, the children all shone like stars today in the swimming pool.  We had some very nervous faces first thing this morning but the children showed bravery, courage and determination  with Lorna and Will our swimming teachers.  Thank you to all of the parents for making sure the children all had their swimming bags and hair tied up.  Getting changed went smoothly and I am very proud of all of the children for their efforts today.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and enjoy looking at a snippet of our week below:
