Dinosaurs Week 2!

 

We are continuing the fun of dinosaurs and expanding our learning. This week we will explore all the different features of a dinosaur and what happened to them. We will move along with the story 'Dinosaurrumpus' and write a list of the different features dinosaurs have in the book. In maths we will be looking at the concept one less and practising taking 1 away. This week we will be taking part in a dinosaur counting treasure hunt, making a dinosaur fossil and practising our cutting skills. Take a look at our photos so farsmiley

Roarrrrrr!

 

This week we have had a very exciting topic. DINOSAURS! We have been learning about what dinosaurs are, what they look like, what they eat and where are they now. Did you know dinosaurs are extinct? Do you know what that means, can your child explain it to you?  You'll never guess what happened to our dinosaurs....they were frozen in a big ball of ice!!! Together we investigated the ice and figured out how to get them out. We have been very busy exploring dinosaur swamps, making dinosaurs out of play dough, designing our own dinosaurs on the computer and feeding hungry dinosaurs. Take a look at what we have been up to smiley

Let's Blend!

Now we have learnt all our Phase 2 sounds we are recapping them and beginning to blend them together. Our target is to be able to blend CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words by Christmas! To do this we will need to read daily and practise our skill of blending.

Take a look at the video below to see how to segment and blend words. Begin by watching the videos and trying to blend two letter words. Once you can do this try the CVC words!

 

Thank you for your support with learning at home,

Happy Halloween

 

This week our new topic is Halloween. We have transformed our classroom into a witches lair and the children have been busy mixing potions and writing spells...has anyone been turned into a frog yet? We are running out of teachers for the children to turn into frogs. We have also been practising ordering numbers! Can your child order numbers to 5? What about to 10? 

 

Don't forget on Thursday it is our fancy dress day...we cannot wait to see your costumes. Please don't scare us too much!smiley

Autumn Days

It has been a wonderful week enjoying autumnal learning with a  little added spookiness with our halloween themed classroom! The children have been fabulous as always and they are making super progress. Thank you for your continued support at home. Please do send us pictures of you completing the holiday homework. 

foundationstage@padiham.lancs.sch.uk

You can support your child over the holiday by building their independence skills.

Can they put on their own shoes? 

Are they on the right feet?

Can they put on their coat and turn the arms the correct way on their own?

Can they zip up their coat?

Kind regards

Class Dojo

 

Here at Padiham Primary School we have taken a whole school approach to sign up to the learning platform Class Dojo. This safe, secure and private platform allows us to communicate with parents, set homework and challenges, celebrate learning in class and reward children for positive behaviours. Your child will have been given unique login details that will create them an account with their class. If you're having any difficulty setting up your child's account or you need another copy of your child's login details, please ask! smiley

Class Dojo

Ever wonder why so many teachers love ClassDojo? See how you can create a positive classroom culture and instantly engage with parents.

It may be raining, it may be windy but that won't stop our outdoor creativity!

 

We had a superb time mark making with nature. The children really enjoyed printing and seeing the patterns leaves can create. Each chose their own leaf to create with! 

Take a peek and see if you can see your little one!

 

Let's Hibernate!

Week 5

 

It's been a chilly but fabulous week looking at hibernation and autumn. The children have loved observing natural changes and researching animals. Our phonic sounds this week ate ck, e, u, r and we have been ordering our numbers from 0-5!

Look at the activities and video's below to extend your learning. 

Remember to keep in touch and send us your child's home experiences and learning to

Treasure hunting!

 

The pirates have left us a treasure map so of course we had to follow it and search for some treasure. We followed the map very carefully, decoding all of the clues. Searching high and low, we eventually found the X MARKS THE SPOT....TREASURE!!! 

We love learning about pirates!

We have also been learning about Blackbeard the pirate. Can your child remember anything about him? smiley

Welcome new parents!

 

Hello everyone, usually by now we would have invited you all in to show you our amazing learning environment and how we implement the EYFS curriculum into our classroom. At this early stage of learning, we place a lot of focus on phonics. Phonics is a way of teaching our children how to read and write. Phonics involves matching sounds to individual letters or groups of letters.

 

We teach the children to segment words, sound them out e.g. c-a-t to then be able to blend the sounds together to successfully read the word. Reading frequently with your child will make a huge difference in their progress to becoming successful readers and writers.

How we teach our children to read and write...
