We found a mysterious box in the Doves garden, covered in what we think was snow! Take a look at our photos to find out what we found.
We have made penguins, created story maps and compared and sorted images for numbers 1,2,3.
Our Key Text is Lost and Found
Happy October Half Term!
Have a lovely break and we will see you back in school on Tuesday 1st November!
Our new topic will be 'In the Cold' and our focus text will be 'Lost and Found'.
Our Topic this half term is Me, Myself and I and our focus concept is Friendship.
As well as settling into a new school and routine, we will get to know new friends and teachers. We will think about who we are and what makes each of us unique. Some key questions we will talk about over the next six weeks are:
Who am I? What makes me special? What is a friend? What makes a good friend? Is it easy to be friendly all of the time?
Stories that we will read and learn with this half term are First Day at Bug School, Owl Babies, Funny Bones, Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

If attending, please arrive via the Barbary Doves gate, you will be able to collect your child/ren from the Turtle Doves gate following the meeting. We will email the powerpoint slides so that those who cannot attend will be able to see the same information.
Read Write Inc Letter Formation Phrases
These are the phrases that the children are taught at school to help them to form their letters correctly.
However, please note that we do teach pre-cursive letter formation so therefore you will need to slightly adapt the phrases by adding in 'whoosh in' at the beginning of each phrase.
You can also download the letter strip below as well as the pre-cursive alphabet for your children to trace.
