Welcome to Sunrays.
Happy New Year!
This half term our theme is 'Do you have a favourite story?' We will be looking at lots of traditional tales and well-known story characters. We will be looking at the repeating parts in these story and comparing different versions of the same story. This week we have been reading The Three Little Pigs. We have made wanted posters about the Big Bad Wolf and we have read alternative versions that tell us that the Big Bad Wolf was not so bad after all! Was it really the Pigs who were unkind and behaving badly?. We have had lots of fun with these stories in class and we are looking forward to reading The Enormous Watermellon next week.
In our maths lessons we have been learning to find symmetry in pictures and make symmetrical patterns. Next week we will be adding, doubling and halving - We are excited to slice and 'halve' a watermellon for us all to share!
As always, if you have any worries or concerns of any kind, please speak with Mrs Smith-Burnand, Mrs O'Keefe, Mrs Ogden-Leigh or myself at any time.
Class fund is £7.50 for this half term.
Here are a few reminders you may find helpful:
Please send your child to school every day with a coat, book bag and then later this term your child will need their reading folder, reading book, reading record and phonic key ring with them EVERY DAY. There may be times when parent readers are in to support reading and without a complete folder your child may miss out on a valuable learning session.
Library Day is on Thursdays. Please try to remember to send your child to school with their library book on this day.
PE sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child has a pair of jogging bottoms and jumper/hoodie in their PE kit as the weather is still chilly.
Please help me keep your children safe at all times by informing me directly of any after school club arrangements your child may have, or of any changes you make to your normal collection arrangements.
Thank you for all you do to support your child's learning at home and I wish your child every success and happiness for this year ahead.
