Well done to the Squirrels for another amazing week! This week in read, write, inc the children have learnt the sounds e, l, h, r and our special friend sound sh (two letters together that make one sound!). The children have bought home a booklet with these sounds in to practice the letter formation at home. They have also bought home a sheet with the new sounds to cut up and put in their word tin to practice! The booklets and sound tins can stay at home to practice. In maths this week the children have learnt the number formation of 7 and 8, so please practice writing numbers 1 to 8 at home. And keep practicing zipping coats up independently!

This week the children have had lots of fun in lessons and doing creative tasks such as animal mask making, autumn crown making and leaf rubbing! On Welly Wednesday the children did an autumn scavenger hunt to see what they could find around the field. And today they have been tidying our garden area! The children have also impressed me on how quickly they have learnt the days of the week, as we discuss the day, month and weather everyday!

And please check bookbags everyday for letters, leaflets, new reading books, children's work, etc!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Monday! Love from Miss Inwood smiley

Another week has flown by in Squirrels class! This week in read, write, inc the children have learnt the sounds and letter formation of c, k, u, b and f. Please can they practice these sounds and letter formation at home, as well as recapping sounds we have learnt previously - m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g and o. The children will bring a sheet home to practice the letter formation and sounds of the ones we have learnt this week - this doesn't need to come back into school, it's just to help with learning at home. Also keep practicing their names! In maths this week the children have learnt the number formation of 5 and 6, so please practice writing numbers 1 to 6 at home. And also keep practicing zipping their coats up themselves please! This week the children had a go at sorting foods into categories, trying the vegetables and fruit and painting with them! 

Please could the children bring in their bookbags every day as they often have things to bring home and on Monday they are going to start bringing home reading books (just picture books for now) and then the books need to be bought back into school on Friday, thank you! I will send out their pupil planner which contains their reading record inside, so please write in whenever you have read with them (the name of the book, a comment about their reading, date and initials), thank you!

On Monday I will also be sending their sound tins home, this is a tin with sounds in that they have learnt already - these can stay at home. As each week I will just send a sheet home with new sounds on to cut up and put in their words tins, thank you!

Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to seeing all your smiley faces on Monday! Love from Miss Inwood smiley

What a busy week 4 we have had in Squirrels class! The children have had so much fun this week doing new lessons and activities. I am so impressed at how hard they have worked and how they all join in with anything and everything we do! They all really enjoyed the PE lesson with Elliot on Monday and myself on Thursday. We learnt about ball skills and what makes a safe space. They have also started their computing and RE lessons this week, which they all did really well in! And their first welly Wednesday where we went exploring on the field to see what plants and insects we could find. We then did Maths outside after exploring on the field, and they had a go at ordering the numicon to 10 and writing the numbers 1 to 3 with chalk. Finally today we have done some gardening, to tidy up our Squirrels garden area ready to eventually do some planting! Also a well done to the children who got our first few marbles in the jar! I have also chose our first super star this week, so they will find out very soon and receive a certificate in the post, then stand up in front of the rest of the school on zoom on Tuesday!

This week in read, write, inc the children have learnt the sounds and letter formation of i, n, p, g and o. So please can they practice these at home, the children should have a sheet they bought home today to practice these sounds on. And also practicing their names please. In maths this week they have learnt the number formation of 3 and 4, so could they please practice these at home too, thank you! Lastly could the children also practice doing up their coats at home themselves. And making sure the children are in PE kit on Monday and Thursday, and have wellies to keep in school for welly Wednesdays and gardening, thank you!

Also a reminder can children please only have a school lunch or lunch box from home, not both! If you want your child to have a school lunch please make sure you order them enough in advance. We also provide the children with a fruit snack at break time so children don't need to bring in their own snack, thank you. And nothing containing nuts in lunchboxes please, due to allergies.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I can't wait to see you all on Monday! Love from Miss Inwood smileyheart

Well done to Squirrels for an amazing week 3! We are so impressed with how well they have settled into the routine in school, especially starting Read, Write, Inc and Maths. They all sat beautifully during the lessons and all tried so hard, we are so proud of them. This week in Read, Write, Inc they learnt the sounds and letter formation of m, a, s, d and t. So could you please practice writing these letters at home, as well as practicing your name, thank you! In Maths the children have learnt the number formation of 1 and 2, so please also have a go at practicing these at home too. This week we have started to send Kipper home - each week I will choose one child to take him home and they will need to take pictures with him and the adult at home can write up about what adventures you got up to. This year Kipper has had to be a picture due to the circumstances, but I hope the children still enjoy it just as much. A letter will go home with Kipper to explain what you need to do, thank you!

Next week on Monday and Thursday please can you send the children in PE kit, as these are the days they will be doing PE every week. Also next week we are going to be starting Welly Wednesday! This is when the children spend the morning outside learning and exploring, so wellies will be needed! Their wellies will need to be kept in school please so we can just grab them anytime we go outside, especially when the weather starts to get worse. So can you send them in with wellies to keep in school ready for Wednesday next week please. Lastly please make sure the children are sent in with coats, especially as it is starting to get colder. As we love going outside in Squirrels, whatever the weather!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I look forward to seeing you on Monday! Love from Miss Inwood smiley

Well done to all the children for another amazing week! They all came in brilliantly again, we are so impressed with them so they all should be very proud of themselves! It was lovely to have the whole class together on Thursday and Friday. They were all amazing again at washing their hands and getting into the routine of school. They have had lots of fun in discovery time and doing different activities this week, such as circle time, dancing to go noodles, singing outside and painting a portrait of themselves! They will be able to take their painting home next week. They were also brilliant at getting ready for home time and some of them said some beautiful prayers too! 

 

Next week we are going to start phonics in read, write inc and maths - this will be done in the first half of the day so all the children will be there. The children will be starting PE on Monday 28th September, which then PE will be twice a week on a Monday and second day to be confirmed in the blog next week. They don't need to bring a snack as fruit is provided at break time. Children that are full time will need to bring in a lunch unless they are registered for school meals. Also children should only have water in their bottles at school please. 

 

Thank you for another lovely week Squirrels, I look forward to seeing you all on Monday, from Miss Inwood laugh

Welcome to Squirrels Class Blog! A big well done to the children for an amazing first week! They came in beautifully and were brilliant at washing their hands well to stop germs spreading. They have all come in and left with big smiles on their faces, which I am very pleased about! They had lots of fun in the classroom and outdoor area making friends with others in their group and doing lots of activities. In the mornings they have all practised tracing and writing their names. Afterwards we'd do the register, discuss our class timetable, calendar and class rules. The children would then choose different activities to do around the classroom and outdoor area. They were also brilliant at getting ready for home time - waiting behind their chairs and washing hands. Here are some photos of what Squirrels got up to this week! We can't wait to see you next week for more fun and meeting more of your class friends!

 

Thank you for a lovely week, from Miss Inwood smileyheart
