Autumn continues to be a focus for learning. The children like singing our Autumn rhymes and have begun to investigate hibernation. They have created their own clay hedgehogs which have been painted and are now hibernating in their own nests under the shed. To create their nests we took the hedgehogs to the Wild Wood. While we were there we filled some seed pots with twigs, leaves, feathers and moss. Now we need to remember them when Spring arrives! Stories involving Percy the Park Keeper will be linked to this learning, providing fictional characters and settings to help children understand the seasonal changes.

Rehearsals for our Christmas play (A Little Bird Told Me) are now well underway. The songs are fun to sing and everyone has now been allocated their part.
This term we are all enjoying Moley's Maths Problems. Every morning the children call Mr Moley out of his cupboard and he comes to set us a problem-solving activity. This could include puzzles, construction equipment, shape pictures or sorting. It is a highly focused activity for 10 minutes and is helping us to work together, concentrate, and think critically.

Beat Baby is another recent addition to Class 1. She is a small puppet who loves to hear rhythmic beats and singing. She is also helping with our listening skills.
Home learning is so important at all stages of primary school, and many of our parents are investing time in hearing children read and completing phonics activities. This reinforcement of learning is a crucial part of the triangular partnership between the home, the child and the school. Any time families can spare to support their children is incredibly worthwhile. Lots of parents attended the ‘3 Good Reads’ meeting and are now reading with their children 3 times each week, with the incentive of a small prize for the children.
Numicon is a resource that helps us to learn about numbers, and is favourite in Moley's maths problems.
