Welcome back after half term!
This term we are introducing the children to our project 'Once Upon a Time'. The purpose of this project is to develop a love for reading. We will be focusing on 4 different fairy tales: Goldilocks and The Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Jack and the Beanstalk.
The hook week 1: The children will be inspired to retell stories through receiving a parcel in the post with a few props in, the children will have to guest which fairy tale the objects belongs to.
The hook week 2: The children will also have a visitor from John Kirk, a famous storyteller, who will inspired the children to retell known fairy tales.
The hook week 3: Parents are invited in to share stories with their child (Bee class day is Monday 12th November at 2.45pm in The Hive.
The outcome of this project is going to be based through drama. The class will retell a chosen fairy tale story to act out. We will be creating freeze frames and photograph the children in role to make into a photographic fairy tale book for our book corner to share with other classes and families.
The children will then spend the last few weeks preparing for Christmas and the Year R Christmas performance is on Thursday 6th December at 2.00pm and Friday 7th December at 9.30am.
Each week, we do P.E on a Thursday morning. This term we will be getting to know the hall and learning about spacial awareness. Please make sure your child's PE kit is in school every day.
Our reading morning is Monday/Tuesday morning and we hand in our reading diaries on a Monday morning. We will be learning the Oxford Reading Tree (ORT) character names and recognition of them.
Please make sure you bring your water bottle (please carry separately) and book bag to school each day.
If you ever have any questions then please do come and ask me, we are always happy to help!
