At Anthony Roper we follow the Read, Write, Inc. scheme. Below are the Read, Write, Inc. words to read. Red words are also called tricky words or common irregular words.
This term may have been a short one but in Squirrel class it has been a busy. Our topics this term have been ‘Senses’, ‘Winter’ and ‘Using our imagination for story making.’ To help us to learn more about the different types of senses we have been making the most of our outside area, woods and even our snow day to carry out experiments. To celebrate Chinese New Year and all our hard work this term we will be having a Chinese banquet on Thursday 9th February.
This term our topic is ‘Special Days’. So far this term we have been learning about Diwali, Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day. I would like to say a big thank you to Jeevan’s mum for coming into talk to our class about Diwali and to share with us how her family celebrate Diwali. The children enjoyed this session and gained new knowledge. We enjoyed making Diva lamps. I would also like to thank Reverend Gary for meeting our class at the war memorial to talk sensitively about the importance of Remembrance Day. This term we still have birthdays, weddings and of course Christmas to learn more about. Our role play area is now a Post Office- this is a big hit with the children. They are really enjoying writing letters and cards to send to each other. It has also promoted a great deal of mathematical language including the weighing and measuring of different 3D shapes and objects. We are so proud of the progress your children are making. Thank you for your continued support at home.
We have settled into school well. We are enjoying learning through play. We have been on adventures to our woodland learning area. Each week we take turns in our house groups to cook with Miss Scotland.
Please try to collect natural resources for our mud kitchen.
Have a lovely half term.
