Ms Huntington: January 2016
Happy New Year to everyone!
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time.
We have all grown a little taller, we have all become more grown up and ready to learn lots more new things! Every day we check for sparkly eyes and talk to the children about going to sleep straight away so that we can grow and be healthy. We are very good at saying what it is to be healthy.
This week we have done some amazing writing in Base 1, all about our favourite Christmas presents. We have been brilliant at recognising numbers and understanding their order. We are getting so good at saying 'one more than a given number' and understanding that one more means adding another object. We have been making sure that we write our numbers the right way around too!
We had a lovely surprise delivery this week from Charlie, he had been very busy over the holidays with his mummy and they decided to bring the snow to Wrenbury! During the week Charlie and a team of friends decided to make our snowman a lovely warm scarf.
We were really happy when someone in Base 1 read a book about 'how to make a house' and decided to follow the instructions and make it in school! It was a wonderful moment, as they worked as a team and made the house, it was fantastic.
This term our topic is called 'People Who Help us' and next week we will be asking the children what they would like to learn about. If any Parents would like to come into school to talk to the children about how they help other people in their jobs, then please come and speak to us. Last year we had a veterinary nurse, a policeman, fireman, nurse, physiotherapist and the children got so much learning out of the experience.
We are hoping to go on a visit to Crewe Fire Station, to learn about how Firemen help us. We will also go on a walk around our village to find out about how the shopkeepers, the vicar, the pub owners and the doctors surgery helps us in our lives.
We would really like some more 'Mystery Readers' to read to the children, they absolutely love it and it helps more children to engage with stories read by somebody different. So please come and speak to us to put a date in the diary.
Thank you for all your support, we think your children are wonderful!

Base 2 had a very messy week last week! Some mischievous elephants had jumped from their book and entered our classroom to have their breakfast. They made such a mess whilst having their breakfast. there were toys all over the place, spilt breakfast cereal, teabags thrown across the table and plates turned upside down! We decided we must describe the mess so that people would know how much mess...
