We have really enjoyed meeting all of our new children in Foundation. The children in Class 8 have settled really well and working hard to learn to follow new rules and routines. We are going to be learning about our six Sitwell Superheroes and their skills. They will help us to follow each of our six golden rules and to develop our own independent learning and team building skills. You will be able to see our new puppets in our classroom - please come and take a look.
Our topic this term is Once Upon a Rhyme. We will enjoy singing lots of our favourite nursery rhymes, listening carefully for the rhyming words and adding them to our Humpty Dumpty rhyming wall. We will also have a go at creating our own verses for different nursery rhymes such as Incy Wincy Spider and Humpty Dumpty where we will think of our own rhyming words. We will also be practising to sing Hickory Dickory Dock in Urdu with Mrs Khan.
In Maths, we will be learning to count both forwards and backwards using some of the nursery rhymes that we are learning about. We will also be learning to recognise our numbers 0-20 and practising 1-1 counting by matching numeral to quantity.
From Week 2, we will be participating in their first PE sessions at Sitwell. Our indoor sessions will be on Tuesday's where we will be learning ball skills with Mr Hiner. Please leave your PE kit on your peg and ensure that all earrings are removed for each session.
To celebrate the end of our topic, we will be having a nursery rhyme party. The children are welcome to come to school dressed as their favourite nursery rhyme character. We are really looking forward to it. Please continue to check our classroom notice board for the date of this upcoming event.
