Newsletter 8 Autumn Term – 26th October 2017

Happy Home Learning
This week we have been enjoying our Teddy Bears Picnic. We have enjoyed setting out the cutlery and plates for our teddies. Can you set the table at home during the half term break? How many forks, knives and plates will you need? Remember we would love to hear about how your happy home learning when we are back in school after half term.
Foundation Stage 2
This week we have been thinking about seasons and especially Autumn. Please can you go on an Autumn walk and talk about the autumn objects that you find, then collect some of the objects (e.g. conkers, leaves). When children are looking for items towards their collection can you support them with their vocabulary and language and also talk about the different sizes (e.g. comparing different sized twigs). Once they have a lovely colourful collection can the children make a collage and bring it to school after the holidays.
