Week Beginning 23rd January 2023 

We finally finished our key text ‘Bedtime for monsters’ this week and were amazed to find out what really happened at the end. Some of us thought the ending was unexpected as we did not think the monster wanted to give us a goodnight kiss! 

This week we are focusing on two special areas: Chinese New Year and the season of Winter.   

In the Winter Wonderland project, your child will explore the seasonal changes that happen during winter. They will find out about the different weather associated with the winter season and explore changes that happens to water as it freezes. They will find out about what happens to plants and animals during cold weather and explore places in the world that are always cold and snowy, including the animals that live there. 

Supporting your child at home 

  • Go on a winter walk and talk about how the environment has changed since the summer months.  

  • Put bird food out in the garden or on a window ledge and observe the birds that visit. 

  • Leave water out in a shallow container overnight on a cold night and see if the water freezes. 

  • If it snows, build a snowman, and take a photo of it to share with the rest of the class. 

  • Share and discuss the Did you know? resource. 

In Maths, we have been looking in depth at numbers 6, 7 and 8. The vocabulary we have been sharing includes: 

More, less, equation, number sentence, ten frame, part-part whole, subitise. 

A small group from each class has also begun to use the Discovery Centre for their own reading session this week and have enjoyed exploring this space. Every child will have the opportunity to visit before the end of next term. 

Finally, thank you for all the donations you have been sending in, we really appreciate your help with this.   Please do continue to pass on anything that you might have that we can use.
