Welcome to Sparrow Class letter

Please see some of the important documents that will support you in understanding your child's experiences and learning and how you can help them during their time with us in our EYFS class.

Please take the time to look at the phase 1 phonics document attached. This will give you some ideas about how we are supporting your child with their listening skills at the start of their time in Reception.

Please take your time reading the document below that will help you gain an understanding of the Phase 2 phonics we have begun this week.

Please take the time to read our recent workshop presentation.

This week we made a large scale world in our setting. We wanted to add features we knew and we wrote labels for the places and people we added.

We have had fun this week making and adapting dens.

Well done Sparrow children. The eye check visitor was really impressed with your behaviour and your phonics recognition!

For one of our challenges this week we were all asked to make our own story map of 'We're going on a bear hunt'. It was great to see the growing imagination, story recall, fine motor control and use of writing on these story maps.

Big Draw Parents event 2017.

To help us understand the meaning of Remembrance day this week we have been making collage poppies, painting poppies and writing a class thank you poem. We have watched some clips on the internet explaining about why we raise money by buying poppies. Please see the link above for an animation we watched that has helped our discussions in class.

Big Draw event 2017. Please come into class on Friday after school to see the art we have produced!

This week we have been learning about story maps. These can help us retell a story and remember the sequence of events.

Sparrow Class had a visit from a radiographer to talk about the bones inside their bodies. We are learning the correct vocabulary for our bones. Perhaps you could talk to your child about this?

We have enjoyed coming back and using our new role play 3 Bears house. It has been great listening to the children make the story their own and adding their own ideas when characters come to visit.

In Forest Schools this week we made our phonemes in mud and with natural items.

This week we have been reading the story of Funnybones. We have been learning about the names of the bones in our bodies and about what our bodies are made from under our skin.

We went to the local church for our first time to celebrate Harvest.

Harvest and pumpkin exploration this week! We have been learning about what Harvest means and why Christians say thank you to God for the food we eat.

This week we have been learning about shapes and how to talk about their features. In our Forest Schools session this week we made shapes and drew them in the mud. What shapes can you see?

We have been using numicon. We can recognise the shapes and we have begun to know the number each piece represents. We tried to fill up a 100 piece board with numicon as a challenge.

Thank you for the kind donations to help us make our pumpkin soup today. We enjoyed talking about the ingredients and cutting carefully.

We are learning to write for a range of purposes. We are writing name labels when we want to keep a model safe.

We went for a walk to look for signs of Autumn around our school. We enjoyed flying sycamore seeds!

We are undertaking a variety of fine motor activities in class to help us gain strength in our fingers. This will help us when we begin to write. Perhaps you could try some activities at home such as using play dough, threading, using lego...?

In our P.E. lesson this week we tried a range of skills in a carousel. We moved in a variety of ways across benches, tried to throw at a target, use hoola hoops and throw and catch. We are developing our listening skills and understanding instructions when learning in P.E.

We have been using our imaginations and our physical skills outside this week.

We are enjoying exploring the continuous provision in the setting.

We have been learning how to form the letters of our names. Our home learning this week will give you lots of ideas to use at home.

Sparrow Class have been learning that we are all different but the same during our school Anti-Bullying week. We have been learning our school phrases to help us talk to others when we are not happy with the behaviour we experience. We have also been learning about our physical differences and our different preferences in life.

We have enjoyed exploring our setting.

Take a look at the images to see some of our classroom routines. In the morning we self register. We have a self service snack area. We have a sun behaviour chart and marble rewards that help us make the right choices with our learning in the setting. We are learning how to be good listeners when we are sitting on the carpet as a class. We have our class worship table area and we have learnt to say Grace before lunch and an end of the day prayer.We have an Everywhere Bear that lives in our class but might come to visit you at home one weekend! We have a class worry toy who helps us if we feel sad. Please take the time to look at these pictures with your child and ask them what they are. This will help you understand some of our routines and procedures. Remember to keep an eye on our class page for more updates!

Our first P.E. lesson in the hall. We explored different ways of travelling. Next week we will begin to learn how to take off and put on our shoes and socks by ourselves!
