We have been collaging and colouring pumpkins to think about autumn, harvest and Halloween. Please talk to your child about what happens in autumn and go on a walk to collect leaves, twigs, conkers, acorns etc. You can bring them into school when we start back on Monday. We hope you have a lovely holiday. It has been a great first half term getting to know all the children and we have been amazed with how well they have settled. 😊
This week our circle time was thinking about what has made us smile and how to show gratitude and be thankful. We also played a game of ‘Keeper of the Bells’ where one child had to take the bells from the middle of the circle without being heard. It was good fun!
We have been practising our cutting skills this week. We coloured in Mr Bear and then made snips around him to look like he was furry. Please get your child to practise using scissors at home to cut out pictures from magazines or old birthday cards. It would be lovely to share photos of your work with me on Tapestry.
We have been practising using our story map to help us retell the story of ‘Peace at Last.’ Listen to our retelling. Everyone did very well and tried hard to join in with the actions and words. We are very proud of them.

This week we have an action rhyme where the children can stand up and sing it. We hope they enjoy, ‘Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear.’
This week each family group has made a story map to help remember the story ‘Peace at Last.’ We have been very proud of how well the children listened and joined in with repeating words and actions. Well done everyone! See if your child can remember any of the story at home.
Today the children sat beautifully to listen to each other. We discussed ‘Who looks after you?’ and ‘Who have You helped this week?’ We finished with the ‘Magic carpet’ where one child gets selected to sit on the carpet and people say why they like to have that person in the class.
We have been discussing which toys we like to play with and have been cutting out toys to place in a toy box and colouring toys which we like. Well done everyone!
For the next couple of weeks our Talk for Writing text is ‘Peace at Last’ and we will be learning this story well to act it out. Please listen to the story at home and talk to your child about the story.
Listen to the story. https://video.link/w/P5dnb
