This week we have been busy learning our new sounds, sh, v, j, r. We had fun with j because it is a Jack in a box, so we put our own Jack in a box and he jumped out! Then we had Jamie in a box, and then the box broke….!We were also learning how to count really accurately and then working out one more and one less, without starting our counting again.We have started our regular PE sessions, every Wednesday and  Thursday and we are really good at getting changed into our PE kits. Once in the hall we have been pretending we are Max, a Wild Thing or one of the trees growing in his room. We have also been learning how to balance in different positions and catch and throw with a partner. We have started to plan a dance of Where the Wild Things are, telling the story without saying any words.

This week we have watched an opera version of Where the Wild Things are in seven small parts- it had talking and music too and it has really helped us think about what a Wild Rumpus looked like. The Wild Things had amazing costumes and Max was played by a girl!

Here is the link for Part One if you would like to watch it again.
Because it is autumn, we have been looking at how the leaves change and have an autumn nature table in the classroom with lots of conkers and leaves already on it. This week we have been learning about which birds need feeding in autumn and which birds we might see in our gardens.
We have seen a few crows and gulls nearby on the school grounds. Next week we will be making bird feeders to take home to our own gardens so we might see more birds.
This week’s Certificate of Achievement went to FELIX FORGIONE for showing such excitement in all of his learning and recently making such good progress learning his sounds. Well done Felix!!!
