'Nurturing our children to excellence through Faith and learning'

Sycamore (reception)

Hi Sycamore Class,

 

I know you've all been working hard this week so well done for taking part in some of the suggested activities.

I'm currently planning more things for you to learn about over next half term and I will let you know all the ideas before you start back in 2 weeks time.

In the meantime I want to wish everyone a lovely Easter break. Hopefully the sun will come out a bit more and we can get out into our gardens again.

 

Stay happy, healthy and of course helpful to all your parents and carers.

 

Mrs Wombwell

Hello Everyone, I hope you have all been enjoying learning in this lovely sunny weather. Here are some more ideas for w/c 30.3.2020. You're all in my thoughts and I know you are working so hard to show your parents and carers how brilliant your writing and number work is :) Keep going Sycamore!!

Hi Everyone,

 

I hope your Monday went well. The Sycamore children and parents and carers have all been on my mind today. I wanted to share a really good link with you all for a teacher that I follow on social media and has his own youtube channel. He says he is going to upload a new phonics lesson everyday and I just watched the first one and really loved it. He will be going over the sounds the children have learned already but that's OK. The link is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTcZnvuTeovlznioLRo0GOA

 

If it doesn't work then his channel is 'Mr MC Early Years' and you can find it on there. He did the digraph 'ar' today. You can pause the video at different points to allow your child to have a go when the time is right.

 

Please take care and look after yourselves,

Mrs Wombwell

 

 

 

Here are the Early Learning Goals that your child works towards in reception year as well as some extra general ideas you can do at home.

It will take place in our school hall. Tickets will be available soon, we will let you know when they are. Please speak to one of us if you have any questions.

The children loved colour mixing today using shaving foam and food colouring to make marble paper. We are going to use this to make some planets next week.

We just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for all your generous donations for the sponsored trundle the children took part in. Mrs Poultney has done the final count up and the children have raised a massive £553. We are extremely grateful for this and it is much more than we thought we would ever raise so thank you again. We were going to buy some construction materials for the outside area as the children will enjoy these but £553 may allow us to get some other resources as well. We will keep you updated. Thank you again for your continued support with your child's learning.

After we have planned our party for the number 5 we will be eating some of the party food on Friday. This will only be sweets without gelatine, nuts or milk in. However, if you do not want your child to have any, please let us know. Many thanks in advance.

Here are some of the children learning about five frames today. They are planning a party for the number 5 and working out if they have enough food for it.

Over the next few weeks we will be continuing with our 'Light and Dark' topic with a focus on Space. If you have any Space books either fiction or non-fiction we would really appreciate them for our 'Space Display'. Please make sure they are named and as always we will do our best to look after them. 

If anyone has any 'Space dressing up clothes' like astronaut suits we would also really appreciate these so we can add them to the role play. 

We will also be trying to encourage the children to make rockets out of junk modelling so if you have any kitchen roll rolls we would be grateful for these.

 

Many thanks for your continued support with your child's learning.
