Despite a shorter week this week, we have been busy introducing both our first topic and our text for this term.
We have begun by exploring our local area by zooming in on Google Earth to find our school and Southborough. This caused much excitement and we had great fun finding some of our streets and places we have visited.
We have yet to open the mysterious package that has appeared in our Reading Areas, but have been thinking about what the front cover picture might tell us about the contents of the story. More will be revealed next week.
We are continuing to learn new sounds this week, as well as reviewing those already learnt. Please continue to practise writing and recognising them on the sheets that we send home. We have also been practising how to hold a pencil and have been using our crocodile fingers to help us. The following video explains what we have been doing.
We will continue to use our outdoor space every day so please make sure that your child keeps their wellies in school and that these, and their school shoes, are named.
Another request to please make sure that everything that is likely to be removed by them is named, so that we can return it to the right child. This includes all items of uniform, water bottles and coats.
This Thursday they will bring home their first book from our reading areas. This is chosen by themselves, not us, and is for you to share with them. Please log the book and any comments using the Boom Reader app. If you have any problems accessing this app then please do let us know.
