This week in Foundation we started our topic ‘All About Me’ with some collage self portraits. The children worked really hard to choose the correct colours for their hair and eyes and they look super. We are continuing with daily handwriting practice and we hope you enjoy the homework task to make their name using different materials or objects.

It has been a very windy week but we tried to make the most of it on Wednesday when we took the scarves out to fly on the field!

On Friday we had a special visit from the library bus where we chose some books for the classroom and we also had our first visit to Mrs Alfords whole school assembly. The children sat beautifully throughout and we aim to go again at the end of this half term.

Can I please remind you to record and reading in your child’s organiser and our target is 3 reads per week to achieve a bookworm certificate.

The children have been fantastic in their first full week at school. They have been busy making new friends and finding their way around the new areas. We have already started handwriting practice, starting their name and certificates are awarded as the children progress learning to form different groups of letters correctly.

Thank you for your support with reading, just a few minutes each day makes a huge difference. Please remember to record any reading and book sharing in your child’s reading record. Our target is three times a week.

Have a lovely weekend!
