New Parents Induction Evening (children starting school September 2017)
7pm at Northwick Manor Primary School
The children are thoroughly enjoying this terms topics. We have studied the weather taking about hot and cold climates and identifying countries in atlases and on globes. There have been weather forecasts and using a computer we have used a piece of software to dress a character in suitable out fits.
Our dinosaur topic always creates a great deal of excitement. We have sorted our herbivores from the carnivores and found out their scientific names and discussed how these gigantic beasts roamed our plant many millions of years ago.
We continue with our daily lessons on phonics and in maths we have been looking at weight and length and the terminology used.
The children have enjoyed their Forest School sessions and our stir fry whilst celebrating Chinese New Year.
Our music focus has been working on control/rhythm and tempo using the chime bars.
Mrs Warwick invites all the children who have shown good progress with their writing during the week to a tea party.
All the children have settled in well and are becoming more independent when organising their coats, book bags etc and learning to sit quietly and listen carefully to instructions.
We hope you have been looking at your child’s learning journey (tapestryjournal.com). Please feel free to share photos from home and add comments.
We have enjoyed our work on Room on a Broom and Superhero’s. We are working on fine motor skills in our handwriting.
Our all About Me looked at how we have grown up and how we are all different especially Elmer the Elephant!
We have investigated our senses tasting, smelling, listening to sounds.
We touched on the history of Bonfire Night and Guy Fawkes and learnt how to stay safe and created beautiful bonfire night pictures using a computer drawing package.
We have looked at nocturnal animals focusing on the hedgehog. We understand how hedgehogs protect themselves, what they eat and what they get up to in winter!!
We have talked about and created many Autumn based items as we watch the beautiful trees in our school grounds change colour and tried to catch the falling leaves.
As Christmas approaches we will be looking at 3D shape and parcels.
The whole school and families were treated to the wonderful performances of 'It's a Baby'. Considering the children have only been in school for one term, their confidence and stage presence was outstanding. What a lovely way to start Christmas.
