Welcome to Red Parrots!

We have settled in brilliantly to our new class and are learning lots!

Nursery Rhyme Week

We had lots of fun learning all about Nursery Rhymes last week. We did activities based on 'Incy Wincy Spider', 'Humpty Dumpty', 'Ten in the Bed', 'I'm a little teapot' and many more!

Here are some pictures of us practising our nursery rhymes, making Incy Wincy biscuits and decorating our own little teapots...

We had a great time during our annual 'Book Week'.

Our book for Book Week was 'Big Blue Train' by Julia Jarman.

We had a great time dressing up as our favourite characters on Dress Up Day!

 

For your information here is the 'Development Matters' document to show the statutory requirements for the Early Years Foundation stage.

 

Working with parents is extremely important to us and we love hearing about what your children are doing outside of school. If your child does something at home (or out and about!) that you think we would like to hear about please fill in a 'News from home' slip and we will display the news in the classroom. Slips are available in the classroom or to download below.

Our next story in the theme 'Who lives in the land of make believe?' will be 'The Gingerbread Man'!

Here is a version for you to watch with your child. 

Here is the Half Termly overview for Autumn 2

Diwali!

We really enjoyed learning about Diwali before half term and did lots of Diwali activities including learning about how families celebrate Diwali at home, making cards and trying some delicious food!

We also enjoyed watching the Diwali story. You can watch it here...(click the picture below)

Some reminders...

Please remember to keep PE kits in school every day. The children will take them home at half term. PLEASE NAME EVERY ITEM OF YOUR CHILD'S CLOTHING!

Please take time to read with your child EVERY DAY - little and often is best!

Please also sign the children's diary so that they can receive stickers which lead to prizes in assembly!

Remember to complete your child's learning plan with them in the morning when they come into school. This is a good opportunity to help them practise writing their name and think about the day ahead!

Please also help us to help the children by reinforcing the sounds being taught at school. Phonics is the method by which we teach reading and writing. Here are some videos which demonstrate the correct pronunciations.
