Another great week of learning for our fabulous fireflies!
Week beginning Monday 6th November 2023
This week we have begun our 'Toy Story' topic in earnest and, in our English lessons, have enjoyed listening to the first few chapters of the original version of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi. The story begins in a very humorous way!
Take a peek below to see some of the other learning taking place in Fireflies this week...
Our new Home Learning Topic Grid is ready for you. Try to complete at least four of the challenges during the term to receive a certificate. Either bring in your Home Learning Book to school, so I can stick in the new grid for you, or simply print off a copy by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.
Week beginning Monday 30th October 2023
This week has seen us begin our new curriculum learning, with a particular focus on Autumn. I think, however, we have probably seen all we want to of the Autumn winds and rain we have experienced over the past few days!
Have a look at some of the things we have been up to this week.
In our Geography learning, we have been using Atlases to identify the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. We also shared a song to help us recall some facts about Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Click on the picture below to hear the song again.
A very warm welcome back to all our Fireflies and their families. We hope you enjoyed the break.
Our curriculum theme in Term 2 is...
We will be comparing toys from the past in our History sessions, creating observational drawings of teddies in Art, finding out about the four countries of the UK in Geography and exploring natural and man-made materials in Science. For more details of our wider curriculum learning this term, please click on the attachment at the bottom of this page.
We will continue to follow the school's phonics programme 'Phonic Bug' and our maths programme 'Power Maths' each day.
In our daily English sessions, Fireflies will be basing their learning on the following class books...
We are looking forward to a fun-filled term of learning. Don't forget to check in each week to see what we have been up to.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning, please do see me at the end of the day or drop me an email.
