Nuthatch (Reception and Year 1)
Avast me hearties!
We have had a wonderful pirate day building dens and training to be a pirate. Enjoy the photos.
This half term, Reception children will be following the PSHE topic of Growing and Changing. The document below provides an overview of what we will be covering each week. For the information on the Y1 PSHE topic, please see Robin class page. If you have any question or concerns please contact us.
I have added some links to some phase 3 phonic games for you to have a look at . I will enclose a phase 3 phonic mat and some captions to read in your child's book bag so you can practice reading these as well.
I hope you find them useful.
Gingerbread man at school
A letter will be sent home about how we develop reading in the Early Years and KS1. A copy it can be found on class pages and reading. A shortcut to this page is underneath. Here you will find all information about phonics and how to pronounce them. It is important to help your child distinguish the first sounds of items. I spy is a great way of doing this. The Gazette are taking photos for the newspaper on Monday, before the children get covered in mud and paint! The children are settling in well and starting to learn routines. Year One children have gined in confidence and are so grown up helping others in the classroom. Well done.
Welcome to Nuthatch class.
We are delighted to be back to school and can't wait to meet all of the children. Unfortunately we can't let you into the classroom due to the current restrictions but please use Tapestry if you wish to speak to me about anything or mention it in the morning and I can phone you after school or send an email to me on the homelearning link on our school website.
Mrs Gloyn,(TA)and Myself, Mrs Morgan are in class on Tuesday and the children will meet Mrs Cooper and Mrs Eastmond (TA) on Wednesday. Our outside area is looking fantastic and we are al set for some exciting learning.
The children will come into the classroom, register, wash hands and hang up their coats before accessing the provision in the classroom.
At hometime we will meet you at the door and reunite you with your children. They will sanitise their hands on departure.
P.E will be on Wednesday so come to school in your kit.
This week we will be focusing on the sounds s,a,t,p in class. Learning their sounds and identifying objects that begin with these sounds. Maths work will involve counting lots of different things and looking at numbers to five. We will be discovering the school and getting to know each other. Please could you activate your Tapestry account. I have sent you an email link to do this. If you are having problems please email me on here.
The class room will look the same to you. We are going to look at all the new things around school and focus on learning about the Earth. We will be learning about the countries that make up Great Britain and learning their names.

A dragon has been spotted in our school. We have found evidence of two nest sites, one of which has a large egg in!
Making our own paper
Aliens love underpants
The classroom seemed to have been taken over by aliens with a love of underpants! A crashed rocket and a washing line full of pants completed the scene. Children were scanned as they came into class to see if they were human. They then became scientists trying to solve the mystery of what had happened.
This is the start of our next 'Talk for writing'. We are focusing on an information text about aliens. We will learn the text orally before writing it and then changing parts to make our own non-fiction text.
Our Quest: The Tiger who came to tea.
As part of our work on ' The tiger who came to tea' the children have written shopping lists so that we could buy the ingredients and make cakes. They then decorated them and practised their scissor skills by making party hats. We planned the party together but the children were quite surprised when a bear turned up!
The little red hen
We are looking at different materials. We have been exploring how materials change and made some lovely bread.
