Our week started off writing about our half term news and we have been thrilled to see such progress in both the children’s copy and independent writing. The children are becoming aware of finger spaces, positioning of letters on the line and putting a full stop at the end of a sentence. A lovely way to start our first week back. On Thursday, ‘Muddy morning’ certainly lived up to its name! We took advantage of a week of rain and, donned in our waterproofs and wellington boots, had fun investing how the wind and the rain had changed the environment on the field. The children noticed how the wind had blown many leaves to the ground creating a multi coloured carpet. We had great fun rustling in the leaves and exploring the many shapes, colours and sizes. The children enjoyed thinking of some adjectives to describe the mud. Oliver said that “the mud was soft because of the rain”. Zachary said the mud felt “squishy”. Lily even said that “the mud was so strong it almost sucked her wellington boot off”!! Other words we all thought of were sticky, tickly, and sloppy. We even had a go at using an online thesaurus to give us alternative ideas. Mrs Kemp is looking forward to hearing the children recite their poem next week and we have been practising very hard to speak loudly and clearly.
On Monday 9th November, please can your child bring in their favourite toy. We will be talking about them in our Topic lesson and sharing with our friends why they are our favourite.
Your child will have received their lines to learn for our Christmas production, along with a cast list to allow you to discuss amongst costume options and ideas. Please can you encourage your child to learn to say their words with clarity, expression and projection.
