Welcome to Week Seven!
Welcome to the penultimate week of our 'Bears' topic. We had an 'out of this world' time last week exploring the book 'Whatever Next!' by Jill Murphy. We really enjoyed comparing this Murphy text with 'Peace At Last' which we read the week before and we developed some really high-quality book talk around both books. We also had a fabulous time engaging in all the Space-themed learning that this text opened up for us. Real highlights of the week included playing in our new Ground Control Role Play area, working as a whole class to recreate the endpapers of the book, playing with Moon Sand, junk modelling our own rockets and putting on a whole class silhouette puppet show! We all also completed 2 miles of our 2.6 mile challenge meaning your child only needs to complete 0.6 miles at home to complete their challenge and earn their certificate.
This week we will be continuing our Space themed learning by thinking about the Moon in our new 'Book of the Week'... *drum roll*...
'Can't You Sleep Little Bear?' by Martin Waddell
This book was written by the same author as 'Owl Babies' and 'Farmer Duck,' which are favourites of ours in Reception, so I am sure the children will enjoy this text too. If you have not heard the text and do not have access to it, you can find a video version below (I do not own the rights to this clip):
Jumpers and Cardigans
PLEASE can you ensure that your child's cardigans and jumpers are labelled with pen or a sew on label in the collar. We are finding that the sticker labels are falling off or being pulled out. We have numerous children with missing named jumpers and cardigans but a whole stack of un-labelled ones in the classroom. We do not mix with any other pods in school or use any communal spaces at the same time so the jumpers and cardigans can be nowhere else and the ones we have must be from the class. If your child is missing a jumper/cardigan and there is an unlabelled one the same size, you can take them. We will wash them in school before you take them home as we have a washing machine.
Please find below the week's Class Learning and Home Learning. It has been wonderful to see so many of you engaging with this and posting on Tapestry. Please keep it going!
