PE Days: We have PE on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times.
Woodpecker Class have had an amazing first term at school. The Early Years Team are so impressed with how quickly the children have settled, adapted to new routines and followed our school values.
Our first topic has been Marvellous Me/Do you want to be friends? The topic has allowed opportunities for relationship building, sharing, storytelling and exploring. The topic started with one of our favourite stories... 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt.' We learnt the story and retold it in the playground as well as performing the story to music in PE. We have made clay bears, swishy grass and sequenced scenes from the story...
We have really enjoyed our first experience of PE! We are super quick at changing into our PE kits and always try and dress ourselves independently. We have learnt so many different stretches and poses during Yoga. The exercise is making us strong and fit...
Phonics We have been enjoying Phonic lessons and learning letters and sounds from the alphabet. We learn Jolly Phonic sounds and actions, this helps us remember each sound when we are writing. So far we have learnt the sounds S, A, T and P. Can you help me think of things beginning with these sounds?
Stamshaw Infant School's Harvest Festival is on Wednesday 17th October. We have been learning about this Festival and have made our own Scarecrow to add to the Harvest display. We are looking forward to performing our song 'Mr Scarecrow' at the festival next week. Next week we are also learning about the season of autumn. Look out for conkers, crunchy leaves and hedgehogs!
Finally... thank you for your wonderful support during your child's first half term at school. They have been settled, enthusiastic and postive and we have loved getting to know them. We look forward to more adventures next half term and we are always here to support and answer any questions you may have.
