What a busy week!

This week in Mars we have been trying to remember our ‘learn it’  in number time ; ‘I have 10 fingers.’ We have counted our fingers by uncurling them slowly every day and  there are always 10!  We need to remember now and reply without counting with”10 fingers”. We have been drawing our numbers correctly to 10 too outside during our target throwing games.

Thank you to ‘Mars’ children for following a recipe to make flap jacks for our charity coffee event in school on Friday. Many people have said they were delicious.

We had a special visitor ‘Jackie’ who came to show us and talk to us about a Baptism (Christening). We enjoyed lighting a candle and naming the baby. I wonder if you have any photos or family items used in a Baptism to look at and talk about with your child.

On Thursday  at 10 O’ clock we will be singing  the harvest songs we have been learning in church. It would be lovely to see all our grown ups there too. The younger children will be at Wiggly Worship.

Here are a few pictures of the things we have been up to. Making owl pictures, reading the Owl Babies book ourselves using new vocabulary. Writing words, collecting and comparing leaves for signs of changes from Summer to Autumn.


We have been talking about what makes us special, Tell us What makes you special ? Our coat pegs are all special, just like us!




September 2018 New beginnings!

Hello, and welcome back everyone!

The children have had great fun exploring their new environment and resources this week. We have transformed the FSU over the Summer to ensure we provide your children with the very best learning environment that enables them to be curious and imaginative in their learning. Please come along to our topic launch on Tuesday 11th September at 8.45 am or 2.45 pm  to find out how we will be  stimulating and developing your child’s interests this term with your help and support.

Here are some pictures of our first days   



Our Literacy book and language focus book will be the ‘Owl Babies‘ by Martin Waddell  & Patrick Benson

Thinking question

Is it better to be an adult owl (mummy) or a baby owl ? Don’t forget to tell me why.
