Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely, restful half term and feel refreshed as we begin our second part of Spring Term. 

The children were very excited this week to hear our new lead text ‘The Rainbow Fish’. At the start of the story, Rainbow Fish was very unkind. He didn’t want to share any of his scales and in the end, none of the other fish wanted to play with him. How do you think this made Rainbow Fish feel? He was sad, upset and felt very lonely. Thanks to starfish and octopus, Rainbow Fish changed his behaviour and started to give away his shiny, shimmering scales to his friends until he only had one left. It felt good to share. Rainbow Fish was part of a group again and it wasn’t long before his friendships grew, as well as his happiness inside. This week, think carefully about how you have been a good friend. Has there been a time where you have shared with someone? How did it make you feel? 

Using our ‘Under the Sea’ theme, the children have been thinking about the number ‘8’, drawing 8 sea creatures on an ocean scene. They have been exploring sea creatures in our small world water tray, writing our tricky words in the sand and using the Duplo to build a submarine to go under water. On Wednesday we wrote some sentences about our lead text using our ‘Rainbow Fish’ template, we created sea life creatures using the playdough and explored the magical shells inside the treasure chest! Today, the children have been finishing off their Rainbow Fish paintings. They looked carefully at the different shapes they had to create, thought about the size of brush they were going to use and selected the correct colours to showcase all of the bright, beautiful scales all over the body. 

Please check your child’s book bag for this term’s homework and spellings.

Home Learning

At the beginning of each new term the children will receive a booklet of home learning tasks and activities for them to complete and work on each week. The most important part of home learning is to talk with your child, read to, and with your child, every day and record this in their School Planners and allow them to think for themselves and develop their independence skills. After Christmas, as the children become developmentally ready, they will each have a small number of simple words to learn to spell each week.

How you can help!

Help to develop questioning skills and encouraging the children to record their own independent learning would really help the children.
