Early Years

A+ R A-

Autumn Term 2


We have started to learn a new story this week in our Literacy sessions. It is called 'The Little Old Gran.' Below is a copy of our story map, a copy also came home with our newsletter to have a go at reading it with your child at home. 

A new set of tricky words has been added to your Resource Pack- me, she, he, we, be. Please practice reading and writing these with your child.

Welcome back after half term. We have been learning about fireworks this week, we made rockets in the workshop and did some writing on Wednesday on how to stay safe around bonfires and fireworks. We did well at listening for initial sounds in words and then used a sound mat to help us write the letters down.


We have started to learn about shape in maths, so we went for a shape hunt looking for shapes in the environment. 


In Phunky Foods this term we are "Striving for Five", so we learnt about the importance to eat 5 fruit and vegetables a day. We thought about different coloured fruit and veg and why it is important to eat a variety. For snack we have had different fruit and veg and even had some fruit juice. 

Monday - Tomatoes and Pineapple

Tuesaday- Corn and Grapes

Wednesday- Pea Pods and Melon

Thursday- Raisins and Carrott sticks



We have added to your child's resource pack a sound passport. The passport has the sounds that we are learning and the hand formations rhymes to match them are stuck in the front. Please help your child to recognise, say and write these letters/ sounds. 

We ran our first Daily Mile on Friday, we had lots of fun.
