We are already two weeks into a new term and have had a lovely time this week. We welcomed Gideon back from his trip visiting relatives in Fiji and started to get to know a new little girl called Chloe. The children are enjoying gymnastics on Monday with the visiting teacher and have been very creative with paint and reclaimed materials.
These children had a certificate today for correctly forming this weeks letters, x, z, v and w. Many more were really close just struggling mainly with the z. Next weeks letters will be l, I, t, u, j and y.
We had a good time at Forest School. The children discovered lots of fresh molehills and then made clay hedgehogs that are drying in the classroom. There were a lot of children that didn’t bring a change of clothes. Please try and send some in for next week as it does restrict what we can do. Thank you.
Today the children had fun jumping on the fresh mole hills and hoping they would spot one of the fury little creatures. They then made a clay hedgehog which will come home on Monday when they have hardened.
Is it a horse or a broomstick ?
Using tubes to measure the classroom.
Each week we will be focusing on the formation of different letters. This week we have been working on z, w, x,v.
Week 2: l, I, t, u, j, y
Week 3: r, n, h, m
Week4: b, k, v
Week 5: c, a, o, d
Week 6: f, s, e, q, g
I will put a letter formation sheet in the children’s bag tomorrow. Each week the children will receive a certificate if they can form the letters of the week correctly so please encourage them to have a try at home.
Yesterday we had a lovely time at the Christmas party. We played pass the parcel, pin the nose on the reindeer and musical statues. We then had a visit from Father Christmas and finished with some party food. We all went home happy but very tired (staff included!)
The children had a fantastic time watching the production of The Snow Globe. It wouldn’t be Christmas without our visit from the travelling theatre company.
We have had a full fun-packed week. It is getting very busy in Little Wenlock. Here are some of the things we have done.
The children have worked hard on their winter prints. They will look lovely on the display board.
I apologise for not informing you about the change to forest school this week. As you will see from the photos on the main pages we had a last minute performance of Aladdin which the children enjoyed. With the Christmas play rehearsals under way it is probably best to leave Forest Schools until the NewYear.
