October 2016 Update
In Sapphire class we always try hard to do our best and we enjoy learning new skills. We learn with partners, in small groups and as a whole class throughout our day. Not only do we learn inside but we also learn and explore in our outside classroom area too. We really enjoying going outside to explore and learn. Using the bikes and scooters is one of our favourite activities to do outside.
In our classroom, we particularly enjoy using the sand, building with Duplo, using the computers and using the puppet theatre and role play areas.
We learn the letters and the sounds they make in our daily phonics sessions, as well as lots of new words. We have a lot of fun spotting them in our reading books and around the school environment.
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Throughout the year we will be learning dance, gymnastics and ball skills. These sessions take place in either the inside hall or outside on our playground or school field.
Our first few weeks of School has involved taking some time to get to know each other, celebrating our differences and talking about what we are good at, what we like to do and what we think we would like to get better at. Our Topic for the rest of the term is ‘Celebrations’. We will be learning about different celebrations that happen throughout the term, within a variety of communities, and learning about how some of these events are celebrated.
