This week in YR started off with Paramedic Ollie and his ambulance visiting our school. We were so excited to look around the ambulance and see all the equipment. We loved hearing the siren and watching the lights, even though we put our hands over our ears! We realised that Ollie works very hard to help lots of people and does an amazing job. We are continuing to find out about people who help us like Librarians, Bin collectors and Lollypop people in our small world. In whole class Maths sessions we have been learning about 1 more and 1 less. We have worked with a partner to show different numbers on our number cards. Our Phonic lessons involved making different words with magnetic letters and showing ‘Fred Fingers’. We started our first gymnastics lesson where we made 5 different shapes, tuck, pike, star, straddle and straight. We practised holding these shapes in a strong position just like a gymnast!

Next week our writing and Expressive Art and design will be focused in our role play areas. In Maths we will be learning how to estimate by guessing how many objects are in a bag and counting them to see if our estimate was correct. We will be drawing emergency vehicles in ICT on the 2 Publish program. Also we will be introducing our Superhero ‘Have-a-go-Hero’, who is willing to have a go. We’ll be encouraging the children to seek a challenge and initiate more activities.

Just a few reminders… please look on Tapestry at your child’s learning journal and comment/like our observations. Check PE kits and change of clothes are on your child’s peg, especially as the weather is so unpredictable at the moment! We change your child’s reading book every Friday so please ensure their diary, book and words are in their book bag. The Library is open most lunchtimes and after school on Thursday.

Next week Show and Share on Wednesday is for red peg (Autumn born) children to bring in something beginning with ‘n’.

Thank you for all your fantastic support and hope you all have a great weekend.
