Miss Pitchford: November 2018
What a super week we have had! The children have come back to school after the half term break full of beans and ready for learning, it is lovely to see!
We have been bringing our Elmer topic to a close this week and spending time preparing for our Elmer day that we are looking forward to celebrating with some parents next Thursday. In our literacy lessons all of the children have been involved in decorating an elephant ready for Elmer day to create a front cover for an invitation and the reception children (and some little wrens!) have been doing some fabulous writing to go inside the invitations. We also worked as a whole class to act out the story of Elmer this week, followed by some impressive jungle animal movements in PE.
In maths we have had a focus on money this week and created a shop role play to get some real practise using money to pay for things! The children, as always, took a leading role in creating the role play; they made their own sign, adverts, shopping trolley, shopping basket and bags to carry the shopping home. They came up with suggestions for the name of the shop and had a vote on what the final name should be. It was a close run contest with 'Base 1 Shop' being the final winner!
We hope to see many of you on Thursday morning for our Elmer day drop in to make an animal with your children. If you can't make it, do still choose and design an animal together and we will work alongside the children to create the animal for our classroom display.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
