Welcome to Foundation Stage
Welcome to class 5 and class 6. The teachers are Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Holmes and the teaching assistants are Mrs Tate and Mrs Barker. If you have any questions or queries feel free to come and see us.
We have had a fantastic first half term at school and have learnt lots of new and interesting things. We have made many friends and are getting to know the school rules and routines. We have all settled in well and are looking forward to another exciting half term.
This half term we have a fun packed topic called, “Let The World Hear You Roar!” The children will be learning all about Dinosaurs and this theme will form the basis of a lot of our learning.
We have a very exciting day on Wednesday 15th November to kick start our topic where we are having special visitors come to school and the children will get to take part in a ’Life Long Workshop.’ The children will have the opportunity to be little archaeologists and dig for bones and fossils using brushes and trowels. A baby Tyrannosaurus Rex will also be visiting which we are extremely excited about. This fun experience will give us lots of interesting ideas and facts to write about.
The children will be reading stories such as ‘Harry & His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs,’ and creating our own stories such as ‘We’re Going On A Dinosaur Hunt.’ This half term the children will continue to practise hearing initial sounds in words and labelling different pictures. We then will move on to writing words and building up to writing simple sentences.
In Mathematics we will be learning how to touch count objects accurately and to match numerals to quantity. We will learn to name 2D and 3D shapes, describe them and use the shapes to make pictures. We will be moving on to solving simple addition problems using counters to help us.
Please keep checking our webpage for more pictures and news soon! It is going to be a very exciting half term that’s for sure!
