Once Upon A Rhyme
Welcome to Class 8!
The children are quickly settling into Class 8, exploring their new classroom and making new friends. We're excited for all the fun times ahead this year and all the new learning we will be doing.
Our first topic of the year is Once Upon A Rhyme and we have already started singing different nursery rhymes in our Literacy sessions and at the end of the day. During our first week at school, we enjoyed singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and spotting the rhyming words to add to our Rhyming Wall. We will continue to add to our wall as we look at different nursery rhymes.
In our maths sessions, we are learning about the numbers 1 to 10. We are looking at how we can represent these numbers in lots of different ways, including the numeral, word, dice, and tallying.
We have had our first PE lesson with Live and Learn and thoroughly enjoyed starting to learn a simple dance routine to music. We will continue to practice and build on our dance over the next few weeks.
We have enjoyed exploring outdoor areas each day, using the bikes and climbing equipment to work on our gross motor skills. We hope that we can continue to enjoy the outdoors to its full potential before the bad weather arrives!
The children have had a brilliant start to school and I am honoured to have them all in Class 8! 😀
