The weather has been very kind to us this week and the children have even made use of their sunhats!
Thank you to all the parents who have offered to help us on our outing, each of you should have received further details on Friday.
I have been delighted with the high response and interest from parents and I am looking forward to sharing a session with you . Please ensure you come suitably dressed as you may get wet, muddy or even both!
I hope you have enjoyed sharing your children’s learning through our blogs throughout the week. The children have really enjoyed sewing their seeds, watering them and peering into the pots to see if anything has happened. Measuring feet was an interesting experience, it is quite difficult drawing round your own foot.especially when it tickles. Do look at the display to see the different results. The children are working hard at their cursive writing and many of them wrote about their family members, again there is a super display for you to see. Great fun was had making stick people wonder if you can recognise any one in your family ?
Reception Transition Sessions.
Please can you respond to the letter sent out by the Reception teachers in order for them to be able to confirm numbers and arrange the afternoon sessions.

Mr Brombley will not be in school after Wednesday this week as he is under going a back operation. We wish him well and hope his recovery will be a speedy one. In his absence Miss Baldwin will be working in the nursery
Please feel free to discuss any concerns with myself or a member of the nursery team.
During this term the children will be looking at different families. To help us with this topic, please could you send in one photograph of your child with their immediate family? We would ask that these are brought in by the end of next week (29th April).
Many thanks for your support,
This week in the transition room the children have been practising their writing skills by creating a list of the people in their immediate family. The children rose to the challenge, showing great courage, self belief and resilience as they tried their best self to write some unfamiliar letters. Some children were able to complete their list independently using their phonic knowledge whilst some children copied or traced over the tricky words but wrote their name independently. Our children just starting to mark make enjoyed themselves making big circles, wavy lines or pictures on large pieces of paper, helping to develop their motor skills for mark making.
What other list can the children write?
This week our focused maths group activity is related to measuring our feet. The children drew around a foot and then used the unifix to measure how long their foot is. They then counted how many unifix they used and then stuck the correct amount of squares on.
Indpendent work was in full swing. The children then wrote their names on and the number of unifix they counted.
How many unifix would you need to measure your foot?
