We hope that you have all had a lovely half term. The children have had a great first week back. We have talked lots about all of the exciting things that the children did over half term, and the children have all done some mark making about their adventures. In maths we have been learning about ordering numbers, and one more than a given number. We have been very busy in our phonics groups and this week’s high frequency words have been: me, a, the.
The children have also been sharing their experiences of fireworks, we have been learning about firework safety. The children have also created some lovely firework art.
Please don’t forget that Parents Evenings are next week, if you haven’t had a slip come home yet regarding your time slot please come and talk to one of us or call the school office and we can arrange a convenient time with you.
Tuesday is odd socks day – the children need to wear normal uniform with odd socks. This is to raise awareness for anti-bullying week. On Friday it is Children in Need, the children need to come to school wearing their pyjamas. Please can we ask that they also wear sensible shoes as we will be learning indoors and outside and can we please have NO ONSIES. The suggested donation for this is £1. Thank you 🙂
We have a lovely autumnal themed week in Smart Sharks and Clever Cats this week. We explored our school grounds at the start of the week in search of signs of autumn. The children collected lots of interesting leaves which we used to create some fantastic leaf alien art work, which the children then wrote some labels to identify their alien’s heads, eyes, arms and legs at the end of the week. All of the children tried really hard and we are very proud of them!
In maths this week we have continued to recognise numbers to 5 in lots of different ways including the number word, five frames and numicon. We have also started to explore how we can sort quantities of objects into two hoops and label these with the correct digit.

This week we have been celebrating Harvest. We have explored some harvest fruit and vegetables and used these to print with. The children then enjoyed labelling their printing. Today we had a Foundation Stage singing assembly where we celebrated all things Harvest. Thank you for all of your generous donations, no doubt the Bicester food bank will be very grateful.
If you are out at the weekend and see any interesting autumn leaves please could you send them in next week. We are going to be doing lots about autumn next week. Thank you!
