We hope you are all well and had a good weekend. We have had a busy week last week. We have been listening to the story of Kipper's Birthday. We named objects from the story, wrote some invitations and decorated them. On Thursday it was National Poetry Day. We performed the rhyme using actions.
This week we are carrying on doing work around Kipper's Birthday and in maths, we are learning about the days of the week, reciting the names and beginning to order them. They will use language related to time such as ʻyesterdayʼ, ʻtodayʼ, ʻtomorrowʼ, ʻmorningʼ, ʻafternoonʼ, ʻeveningʼ and ʻnightʼ. They will see oʼclock times in the context of their daily routine. Children will also be introduced to the language of position, playing hide and seek with a teddy bear using key vocabulary such as ʻinʼ, ʻonʼ, ʻoverʼ, ʻunderʼ, ʻbesideʼ, ʻleftʻ and ʻrightʼ.
We would like to thank the parents for supporting their children with their home learning. Please also access the activities from Oak Academy using the links provided. Don't forget to also go for walks and stay active too which is important for our health and well being.
Finally, this week we shall finish our learning on the story of Kipper’s Birthday and so on Friday 9th October we are having a class party to celebrate the end of our learning on this story and to understand how parties are celebrated. Your children can wear their own clothes on this day. Please ensure your children were sensible footwear.
Have a good week.

Then parents write down the days of the week and jumble them up.
