Welcome to Doves!
(Turtle Doves and Barbary Doves)
Week beginning: 14th October ....
HARVEST FESTIVAL - We hope that you enjoyed joining in with our Harvest Festival Celebration! We are all very proud of the children - they sang beautifully and were incredibly well behaved throughout!
LITERACY - In Literacy we will be focussing on hearing, saying and writing initial sounds of words. If appropriate children will be listening to all sounds in a word before attempting to write simple words, for example, cat, dog, mop etc.
Our cursive handwriting focus letter will be the letter o.
MATHS - In Maths we will be begin to look at simple 2D shapes. We will work on identifying 2D shapes, as well as describing and comparing different shapes. We will also go on a 'shape hunt' around the school to see what shapes there are in our school environment.
In PSHE we will be learning about healthy eating - we will be discussing which foods we should eat a little/lot of.
Each day we will be working in our Phonics groups. The games and activities will support the children in being able to hear and say initial sounds, segment and blend simple words.
*TAPESTRY LETTERS* - if you have not already done so then please return your completed Tapestry letters so that you can gain access to your child's learning journey. Thank you! :)
