Our work- Autumn Term:

Everyone in Jade Class settled in well at school and made lots of new friends. We learned the names of all the adults and talked about our class rules: using Friendly Hands, sharing the toys, using our manners and looking after our belongings. Jade Class learned about keeping safe in school and washing our hands often – and we love the Soapy Conga! Jade Class learned where our carpet spaces are and how we can listen to the adults who help us with our learning and playing.

In school this term we have been reading and learning all about Traditional Tales and seasonal stories in our Literacy lessons. We listened to, joined in with and retold lots of well-known stories using Talk4Writing actions and rewrote some of the stories with our teachers.

Jade Class have been learning the set 1 sounds in RWI and practising how to blend them to read words.

We have read lots of books with adults and can now talk about the events, characters and settings of the stories. We can talk about heroes and villains and guess the endings of stories, too!

Jade Class has been learning how to copy and then write our names independently and use the sounds that we can hear when we need to write words or sentences.

In our Maths lessons, Jade Class have been learning to count, recognise and order numbers. We have also learned about addition and subtraction, how to recognise, compare and describe a range of shapes and how to count carefully. We have been practising writing our numbers, too!

In our choosing time, Jade Class have used our imaginations to create some wonderful experiences. We love to role play, use scissors and glue, make treasure maps, explore outside, build robots, farms and castles and we can talk about what we have invented. We are so busy all day!

Jade Class have also learned about special or important times such as Wear Red for Racism and Children in Need. We have observed the Armistice Day silence, made a scarecrow for Harvest Time and performed some Christmas songs using Makaton signs.

For Harvest Time, Jade class read the story of The Scarecrow’s Wedding. We then made our own scarecrow – can you see which materials we used and how we did it?
