Welcome to Doves Class

Picture 1



I would like to begin by saying a HUGE thank you to all the parents who have offered to give up their time to come in and help us out over the next 4 weeks - the support staff and myself are incredibly grateful and wish to thank you all for your continued amazing support! :)



Week beginning 21st January

This week we will be continuing to complete activities linked to the story of 'Lost and Found'. This is the last week that we will be focussing on this story in a hope that the we can return the lost penguin to his home! The children are VERY excited about this! This week we will be drawing a text map to support the children in retelling the story in their own words before attempting to re-write the story by the end of the week.


Our focus letters for handwriting this week are 'a' and 'd'.


In Maths we will continue to practise accurate counting of objects that cannot be moved as well as counting out a given number of objects from a larger group.


On Wednesday we are going to be discussing ways of keeping healthy with a focus on making healthy food choices. We will be sorting food items into two groups - foods that we can eat a lot of and foods that we should only eat a little of. Each child will then make a 'healthy plate' by cutting and sticking food items out of magazines onto a paper plate.


*MAGAZINES* If you have any magazines that have pictures of food that you no longer need then please do bring them in before Wednesday! Thank you! :)

* JUNK MODELLING * Please send in any junk modelling that you may have! Thank you!


*SHOE BOXES NEEDED* We are about to start a very special Christmas craft project with the children which we will be inviting you in to see in December for our exhibition! In order to do this, each child will need to bring in an empty shoe box. Please write your child's name on this and send it in to school! Thank you! :)

Reading books....

As you are aware reading books are changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday in order for your child to be able to read the book twice to allow for consolidation. However, at parents evening a few of you asked for a new reading book each day as you feel that this will benefit your child. This is absolutely fine - if you wish for your child to have a new reading book each day we are happy to issue two reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday. Please just write a short note in your child's reading diary to let us know if you would like this to happen. Thank you!
