Maize class have now all completed the Department of Education Reception Baseline Assessments. Well done Maize class!
Big building today in Maize class! First the children made a speedboat and gave each other roles to keep it ticking over. Then they made a bridge, each child made sure to help their friends to cross it. Finally, they made a super fun slide! All the children worked as a team to build the creations, then supported each other when taking turns to try them out.
Bug hunting on Friday. Here the children are using their senses to spot some of the insects on their list.
Hello all, another wonderful week of fun in Maize class. Attached in the overview of texts the children will be reading in class this term and our PSHE and Oracy links. Our PE days are Monday and Thursday, please send the children into school in their PE kits on both of these days. Our Forest school slot is on a Wednesday afternoon and depending on the weather it would be useful for the children to bring in their welly boots, for them to change into if needed. Reading books will be changed every Friday! All the best, Miss Walker.
Maize class have been getting know some initial sounds this week and using actions to help them remember words that begin with the same initial sound.
Maize class getting ready to write! Here the children are painting with mops to strengthen their shoulder and elbow pivots. This is to build up their upper bodies to get them ready for writing.
Hello to all the wonderful parents of the fabulous new additions to Maize class! We have had a fantastic first week in school with the children and they have all settled in really well. On Friday the children were sent home with a Purple band Reading Book and a Reading Record. You will notice that the book has no words in it, this is to encourage the children to describe the pictures in their own words and promote discussion between you and your child (I have attached a document which explains this further). If you could please have a look at the book together and write down a short note about how you got on, in your child’s Reading Record. Thank you so much, Miss Walker.
Lots of making and creating in Maize class this week. Each child choose different materials to create their own spoon self. The children have already been enjoying playing with them!
This week Maize class have been learning nursery rhymes. At the beginning of the week, we learnt the words and actions to ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star’ and ‘Five speckled frogs’ has helped us with counting to 5. Next we learnt and performed ‘Head, shoulder, knees and toes’, then we talked about all the different parts that make up our body!
Welcome to Maize class! All of the children have settled into their new class amazingly. They have enjoyed exploring their new environment.
