Friday 11th September
This week has been our first full week in Sapphire Class and it has been a fantastic week. It has been a pleasure to see all of the children happy and healthy and to start to get to know them. In class, the children have settled in well, being sensible and following the new rules we have in place.
On Monday, we started our new unit in maths, Place Value, and the children are learning and showing their understanding of numbers up to 1000. In English we have been sharing the book Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers and we have used the story to support us in our writing. When we are writing, we are thinking about using adjectives and making sure we remember full stops and capital letters.
This week, we have also been working on handwriting and I am very proud of the progress I can see in the children's books already.
We have shared lots of stories this week. Our class novel is The Wild Way Home by Sophie Kirtley and we are nearly to the part where our main character Charlie finds himself in the Stone Age. We can't wait to find out what happens when he gets there! Over the week, we have shared stories to help talk about our feelings and the stories The Colour Monster and Lucy's Blue Day have helped us do just that.
Next week, we are going to be starting our spellings so I will be sending home some spellings for the children to learn on Monday so that we can quiz on them on Friday. On Thursday, we will be starring our new PE Unit so please make sure the children come dressed for PE. I have included the PE letter down below.
