Early Years Team

We have had a fun filled 5 full days at school! We have very much immersed our learning around the Naughty Bus who has featured in Maths, Geography and Pedro lessons this week! We have enjoyed restarting PE with Gymnastics in the hall. If you haven’t already please could you bring in your child’s PE kit in next week.

In maths this week we focused on Mass, introducing the new vocabulary and weighing lots of items.  The stories we used to support our learning:

Who Sank the Boat

Stanley the Mailman

Mighty Maddie by Stuart J Murphy

How Much does a ladybird weigh

In Geography this week we explored maps and some of the different symbols that are used on them.  You can now rely on your child to direct you when heading somewhere new!! Pedro was trying to make the Naughty Bus go faster but couldn’t work out how to do it.  Pedro said he has heard of something called ‘gravity’ so we watched a video to find out more and thought about how this might make the bus go faster and further. We then experimented with blocks to make ramps of various heights measuring how far the bus went each time.

We are very lucky that Mrs Peachey has kindly donated more of her time to support with cooking again this term. Nine children each week will have the chance to make their own pasta to take home to enjoy with you (that’s if they share)!


Can we also ask that you practise fastening coats with your child and, as the weather is much colder now, that they have gloves, hat and a warm coat every day.


Have a lovely weekend!


RWI cards and how to use them

The following videos demonstrate how to use the cards to practise recognition of each sound and how to blend sounds together to read words.  Please read the instruction cards inside the pack for suggestions of words to make and for other activity ideas.
