We have loved exploring the story of Handa’s Surprise this week. We made some wonderful kente patterns, animal silhouettes and enjoyed cutting, peeling and tasting various fruit. The story was very popular with lots of children acting it out! Please look at the children’s Handa’s Surprise display.
After Half term we will be looking at the Story ‘Room on the Broom.’ The children will be role playing the story, drawing favourite characters and making spells. They will be making their own wands and magic potions. If you could bring in some short sturdy sticks to make wands out of, that would be fantastic!

We have loved exploring People who help us this week. We had a visit from a police officer, discussing how he helps people. The children drew their own picture of what they would like to be when they are older.

This week we looked at the book ‘Naughty Bus’. We read the book and retold the story focussing on sentence structure, painting roads and buses, made bus tickets and role played getting on the bus. We also made buses from junk modelling; made maps of the route the bus would take and shared writing about Naughty Buses adventures.
Teaching of phonics will begin next week. Each day the children will learn a new letter sound as part of a fun and exciting carpet session. Your children will bring home a phonics book which will have the new phoneme they have learnt stuck inside so that they can practice with you at home. Please return the book to school every day in their book bag.
