Learning Lens 17th September 2021


We have had an amazing toy focussed week this week. We have created labelled drawings, special sentences and used our toys to think about how old and new toys are made. We also considered how important our toys are to us and how we would feel if they were lost. This is the scenario in our new focus book for English- ‘Knuffle Bunny’ by Mo Williams.

We hope you have found the ‘home learning’ menus and reading menu’s in the school bags this week. Yesterday we included the new planners for this year as well. There is much information inside them so please have a look and share with your child. Please use these for any notes and information for us too. We will soon be sending home daily readers, and the library books will be coming home today. Library books are chosen from our class library by your child and are for you to share and enjoy for a week. Please send back in when you have finished it and a new one will be sent home every Friday.

In maths we have consolidated our numbers to 10 and have investigated using different models and materials to show them. Writing the digits as well as the word has been tricky!

We are looking forward to our live author zoom this Friday afternoon , our children will have the opportunity to meet author Abie Longstaff online with the ReadingZone Book club, on Friday 17th September. Abie will introduce her picture book, Story Soup, and talk about creating stories, provided by Reading Zone. This is a great website for reading ideas and coverage of what’s new in children’s book.

Our theme for PSHE this term is ‘Me and my relationship’s’ We have begun by looking at emoji’s and thinking about what feeling they are showing. Being able to read others feeling helps us to be kind friends.

If you are in Southborough on Saturday the new hub is being opened and there are exciting activities to see and do happening all day. The new library is worth a look too.

Looking forward to meeting some of you on the 21st for our Meet the Teacher evening and we are busy planning some exciting events but more details will be following soon!

Wishing you a sunny weekend.

Mrs Voisey, Mrs Willock, Mrs Rutherford and Mrs Heaslewood.
