Walk to the post office

Last week the children went for a chilly walk to the post office to post a very special letter they had written for their Mummy and Daddy.

We had to buy stamps to put on the envelops and then posted them in the post box.

Keep an eye out for your special letter to be delivered by your post man or post lady.

The Joly Postman

With Christmas just around the corner, the children have read the story of ‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’ delivering letters for Christmas.

As we read the story, we listened carefully for the rhyming words and anticipated what rhyming word we thought might come next.

Next Week…

Next week the children will be reading the story ‘After The Storm’ by Nick Butterworth. This is one of many lovely stories from the ‘Percy the Park Keeper’ series. As part of our learning in Literacy the children will be asked to sequence the events of the story, focusing on the beginning, middle and end.

Why not familiarise yourselves with the story by listening to it here.

Autumn Walk

 

The children went on an Autumn walk this week to have a look at how the environment changes during the seasons and collect leaves to bring back to class. We also went on a hunt to find spinning Jennys for the children to take home and play with.

Jacob went looking for his own leaves and spinning Jennys when he got home from school and brought them into class the next day to show his friends.

We have been learning all about hedgehogs this week. We have read a story book called ‘The Very Helpful Hedgehog’ and read facts books to find out lots of information. We now know that hedgehogs like to eat worms and caterpillars and are awake at night when we are asleep. Animals that sleep in the day and are awake at night are called nocturnal animals. We have also found out that hedgehogs hibernate. This meas they sleep all winter!

What facts can you tell us about hedgehogs? Comment below with your ideas.
