Thank you to all of your grown ups for their continued support and we hope you all have a fabulous half term full of lots of rest! See you all very soon, Miss H x

Are you ready for another update from some familiar smiley faces? Lets see who we have here - Hareem has been getting very creative and has enjoyed making an alien rocket! Jack has been busy working on his Phonics by spelling tricky words, writing about the Doctors in Literacy and has been working on his own 3D model of an ambulance! Theo has enjoyed bringing Thomas and Friends along in to help him with his Maths learning this week and has been working very hard in Phonics and Handwriting - beautiful spellings and cursive handwriting! Well done, Sitwell Superstars!!!!

Hello from Abdul-Basit! He has been enjoying practising his handwriting using his cursive letter formation and bird's beak pen grip that we have been practising. He has also enjoyed creating lots of Space pictures with lots of lovely detail too! Well done, Sitwell Superstar! Keep sending through your home learning pictures, Class 8. It's a great way for us all to keep in touch!

Don’t forget to keep sending through your snow pictures or pictures of your home learning to our class 8 email address. You may have taken you home learning outside - practise writing your tricky words in the snow with a stick maybe? Ada enjoys making patterns in the snow and we write names of people in our family. She also likes to make tracks with her bike in the garden in the snow!

Imogen has been in touch to share some of her fabulous handwriting which she is feeling very proud of! She also enjoyed a walk in the snow for her exercise this week which looked like lots of fun! What a fun way to keep active! Eshaal has also been in touch to share some of her Phonics spellings and handwriting and she has been practising to write her numbers to 20 too. Well done, Sitwell Superstars! Please keep your pictures coming, it's important that we all keep in touch and it is so lovely to hear about all of the fantastic home learning you are doing and to be able to talk to you about your learning.

Eman enjoyed completing Mrs Peart's PSHE challenge and thought of a lovely interesting fact about herself - that she likes caring for animals. Haleemah has also been working hard practising her cursive handwriting by spelling those tricky words in phonics, spelling different digraph words and practising her addition skills in maths. Well done, Sitwell Superstars!

What did the snowman say to the other snowman?

 

'Do you smell carrots?'

 

Good morning everyone and a very happy Monday to you all! Another week planned of home learning activities and we have some very exciting ones too! You are all being such Sitwell Superstars and I can't wait until we're all back in the classroom talking about all of the exciting new things that we have been learning about. I have had a few emails of updates from your friends about their home learning that I thought you would like to see. Remember, it's important that we all keep in touch so please send through your weekly emails and pictures to let me know what you have been up to and so I can catch up with everyone.

 

Lots of luck for this week - you're going to be GREAT! Keep working hard for your grown ups - they are being such superheroes right now at keeping you safe and being your teachers. How about doing an act of kindness for your grown ups this week to show how thankful you are (and we are) for all of their help and hard work? Could you tidy your bedroom or make your bed? Could you make them a card or a picture? Could you ask for their help to make them a special treat e.g. baked goodies or a delicious meal (it's always fun when we cook together) or could you say something kind to them e.g. tell them why they are special to you or what you like the most about them?

Remember - when we do an act of kindness we spread a little happiness too! And when someone else smiles, it makes us smile too! Smiles all round!!

 

Keep working hard Class 8,

 

Miss Hainsworth

Thank you to everyone who joined our Zoom catch up call on Thursday! If you were unable to attend, I have arranged next weeks for Wednesday 27th January at 11am as I will be in school next week. With Zoom, it only allows a short call I'm afraid but when we are all set up on Google Classrooms we will be able to arrange a longer call. We need more time as we have so many children attending the call, it's amazing! Apologies for the abrupt ending to the call but I am so relieved that we were able to find out about everyone's news about why they were feeling proud this week. For Wednesday's call, I have asked to see if you are able to bring one of your favourite toys to talk about. I look forward to seeing all of your exciting toys!


Have a wonderful weekend Class 8. Have a break from all of your busy home learning and enjoy time with your family. Don't forget to keep active and maybe set up an obstacle course and complete Mrs Peart's  Weekly Challenge! Email in your pictures by Monday morning and I will be able to put them forward for the competition. Best of luck! I can't wait to see what you get up to. I'll have to see what I can find in my garden and build an obstacle course too - even Ada could have a go!

 

Take care,

Miss Hainsworth

Handwriting Home Learning w.c. 18.01.21

Snow fun this afternoon!

So... How does a penguin build a house? I-gloos it together!!

 

Well... what a beautiful day! How exciting to have a delivery of lots of white fluffy snow!! It's like a winter wonderland when you look outside!!! You have all been working incredibly hard at home completing your home learning - hopefully you will be able to enjoy a little time in the snow in your garden or on a walk with your family. You might even be able to take some of your home learning outside e.g. can you use a stick to write your ladder letters in the snow? Can you ask a family member to lay in the snow and could you measure how many hands tall they are by printing your hands in the snow from their feet to their head? Can you retell the story of 'The Little Red Riding Hood' by acting it out? You could make your own Mr Wolf out of snow!

 

Thank you to everyone who was able to join our Zoom call today - we had 17 children chatting away today and even had chance to say hello to our children in school too with Mrs Rodgers and Mrs O'Brien! I will be sending out another invite soon ready for next week. Don't worry if you were unable to attend today, you might be able to join next weeks. I will be arranging them each week so that we all get chance to see one another while we're working apart.

 

I have had a few updates from some of your friends, let's find out what they have been up to!

Zain has enjoyed completing a lovely watercolour picture and wrapped up nice and warm to enjoy the snow outside! He is missing his friends in Class 8 and is hoping to see everyone on next weeks zoom call!

Autumn 1

Our topic for this half term will be: 'Proud to be Me'

 

Hello and a huge welcome to Class 8!

 

 We have been waiting such a long time to meet you all and didn't we have the best first few days for transition? The adults are feeling incredibly proud of all of the children in Class 8. You all came into school with smiley faces, chatty voices and were all eager to play and explore in your new classroom. It was so lovely to see you begin to make new friends, as well as catching up with old nursery friends. Our classroom was full of excitement and laughter again and we can't wait to continue to get to know you all and begin our new learning journey together.

 

Our first topic of the year is 'Proud to be Me' where we will be learning all about ourselves.

 

In Maths, we are going to be doing lots of counting forwards and backwards as well as learning about the numbers 1 to 10. We will be looking at how we can represent these numbers in lots of different ways, including the numeral, word, dice, and tallying. 

 

In Literacy, we are going to begin by learning about Rhyme. We will be listening to familiar songs and rhymes to spot different rhyming words and collect them on our Rhyming Wall in the classroom. Keep an eye out for all of the rhyming pairs that we are going to find!

 

In Phonics, we will begin by learning about listening to sounds, hearing initial sounds and then move onto learning about the different sounds of the letters of the alphabet. We will learn how to pronounce each sound and listen for the sound at the beginning, middle and end of simple CVC words.

 

In Handwriting, we will practise how to write each letter using cursive letter formation. You will be able to find videos to support your child on our website under 'curriculum support'. To support with our handwriting, we will be doing lots of fine motor warm ups and finger gym activities to help strengthen our muscles and support our pen control and grip.

 

We will be having our first PE lesson with our Live and Learn coach, Mr Hiner where we will be practising our ball skills. Class 8 will take part in indoor PE sessions every Wednesday morning with Mr Hiner. Please remove earrings on this day and tie up long hair if necessary. As part of PE, we will be practising to get dressed and undressed by ourselves to develop our independent skills. Please can you support your child by practising this at home.

 

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! 

 

At the end of Week 2, all of the children will be been given a reading diary and book bag. Class 8 are very excited to start reading - if they read 3 times or more at home in a week, they will get a stamp. If they collect 6 stamps, they will win a prize from Mrs Peart's special prize box! Reading diaries will be collected in every Monday - please ensure your child comes to school with their book bag on this day. Your child's reading book will be changed on this day and targets will be updated in your child's reading diary regularly so please could we ask that all school books are kept safely in your book bag and returned to school each week.

 

 

The children have had a brilliant start to their new school already and we can't wait to continue to get to know the children even more and look forward to all of the exciting things we have planned for this year. It's going to be great!

 

Due to government guidelines, parents and carers are unable to come into the classroom. Therefore, we will be using our class page on the website to upload pictures of displays of our work, learning tasks we have completed and general news and events about the children. Keep an eye out for new posts!
