Hello everyone and welcome to our first Spring term blog. Although Tracy is still present on the blog, Shirley has well and truly taken over but due to a few technical issues it is taking a little longer to get Tracy changed to Shirley.
First of all we would like to say a big hello to Shirley. Shirley is an outstanding teacher with many years experience and has been a big hit in class. We are so looking forward to working alongside her in the coming months.
We have definitely hit the ground running since coming back to school. This term our new topic is all about Fairytales. We have started to look at characters and the settings of a story and in English we enjoyed a game of ‘good or bad’ characters and have started Rainbow writing, forming and copying sentences and practicing our sight words. In Maths we have gone on a number adventure and have been practicing writing and counting to 5 and even some children to 10. On Friday we had a lovely sensory story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and transported our room into a fairytale classroom exploring smells, tastes and textures.
But the most exciting thing to be happening this half term is HORSE RIDING and what a fantastic first session we had yesterday. Everyone was absolutely fabulous and everyone commented on just how brilliant the children were. We are so excited to go next week already and everyone was in high sprits on the bus on the way home.
Hope everyone has a lovely week 🙂
