Welcome to Doves!
Turtle Doves and Barbary Doves
Week beginning 28th September 2020
We have had another busy week in Doves and we are impressed with how well te children are getting used to the routines and activities in school. Have a look at the new photos below to see some our wonderful active learning.
Next week we will read and discuss the story 'Funny Bones' by Allan Ahlberg as part of our 'All About Me' topic. We will talk about the story structure and characters, focusing on recalling as many details as we can remember. We will use this to create our own storymaps in our Literacy books and write initial sounds. Lots of our table activities will be linked to Funny Bones to deepen our understanding of the story and spark curiosity to develop our thinking.
In Phonics, we will be focusing on recognising and writing the letters: t, i, n p.
In Maths, we will look at counting objects carefully and accurately.
In PSHE, we will be talking about how to be kind to eachother and how we can work together as part of a team.
In RE, the focus will continue about special people in our lives - our friends and why they are important to us.
Please take a look at our welcome presentation and Autumn timetable below.
We will begin regular Dough Disco sessions with Doves, it is a fun way to develop fine motor skills with music, in preparation for writing. Please could your child bring in a named pot of PlayDough to school and we will keep these in school to use.
Thank you for your support.
