We are Golden and we SPARKLE
We are so excited!!!
All the staff and children in Green and Blue class are so excited about everyone returning to school on Monday. This week the children in school have been talking about seeing their friends again and how much they have missed them. We have been busy getting the learning environment ready and have planned lots of lovely activities to welcome you back.
We want to say a HUGE well done and thank you to all of you for your hard work during the school closure. The children in school have continued to SPARKLE as have the children at home! We have LOVED looking at all of the photos of your Home Learning, talking with you via Zoom, looking at your work on Purple Mash work and reading your emails and Tapestry updates. All this would not have been possible without the hard work and positivity of your adults! Please take the time to celebrate your achievements and recognise the amazing job you have done! For the children working at home, please bring your packs into school so that we can see all of your hard work and celebrate together.
Miss Ross, Miss Beckett, Miss Hunt, Miss Thornhill and Mrs Easom.

Our Learning Journey!
Every week we will add new information about our learning in Blue Class. Please scroll down the page to see what we have learnt previously - it really helps if your child can revisit previous learning and talk about it with you.
Week beginning 12th October:
This week in Literacy we will be focusing on the ‘People who help us’. We will be discussing the people at home, school and in our community that help us. We are going to learn about Mary Seacole and how she inspired many people with her acts of bravery and generosity. Please refer to the PowerPoint to learn about her and you could draw a picture of a nurse or a local hero that your child admires.
In Maths we will be learning about the number 3 and focusing on addition within 3. Please take a look through the Numberblocks: Number 3 PowerPoint and give some of the tasks a go! To support the learning of 3 can you play a game of tic-tac-toe, as this will promote counting by assigning number names to one object. You could also build towers of 1, 2 and 3 to help your child understand the difference between each number.
This week we will be learning about the sounds- ck, e, u and r. Can you find and sort different things at home beginning with our sounds this week.
Can you draw some pictures of things beginning with last week’s sounds- g, o, c and k?
To continue our celebration of Black History Month, please continue to learn about Mary Seacole by listening to the story: Hoorah for Mary Seacole by Trish Cooke and Anni Axworthy
Week beginning 5th October:
This week in Literacy we will be focusing on the ‘Supertato’ story. We will be discussing the characters of the text, discussing the features of a Superhero/villain and making our own Super Carrot! At home, you could make your own Supertato from a jacket potato, add some googley eyes and practise re-telling the Supertato story.
In Math’s we will be learning about the number 2 and focusing on pairs. Please take a look through the Numberblocks: Number 2 PowerPoint and give some of the tasks a go! To support the learning of pairs, you could create a scavenger hunt-find a pair of socks, shoes, wellies and gloves. Give one half of each pair to your child and hide one half around the house. Then ask your child to find the missing half to the pair.
This week we will be learning about the sounds- g, o, c and k. Can you find and sort different things at home beginning with our sounds this week.
Can you draw some pictures of things beginning with last week’s sounds- i, n, m and d.
To help celebrate Black History Month, we are going to discuss and celebrate our similarities and differences. Please watch the story ‘Who do you see in the mirror’ by Vese Aladewolu- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkgZ2GVXal4&t=36s
Week beginning 28th September:
This week we will be reading Superworm by Julia Donaldson. We will be doing lots of activities to bring the story to life such as making Superworm belts, skipping and hoola-hooping and digging for buried treasures. You can also enjoy the story by sharing the PowerPoint below. Listen out for the rhyming words in the text. Maybe you could make your own 'rhyming basket' by finding objects around the house that rhyme - such as a bear and a chair, car and star, seal and wheel, a lizard and a wizard, a parrot and a carrot!
This week we will be learning about the Number 1 and introducing the children to the Numberblocks. Watch the first episode together then discuss things you can see in your house that you only have one of. Practise writing the numeral 1 using this rhyme - ''Number 1 is like a stick, go straight down its very quick!'' - Then draw pictures from the episode such as 1 bee, 1 tree, 1 apple, etc.
This week we will be learning about the sounds- i, n, m and d. Can you find and sort different things at home beginning with our sounds this week.
Can you draw some pictures of things beginning with last week’s sounds – s, a, t and p?
