This week in Class One, we have been thinking about people who help us at home! We read the Anthony Brown story, ‘Piggybook’ to help us start to think about all the different things that our grown-ups have to do every day. The story features some very amusing pictures in which all of the Piggot family start to transform into real pigs, thanks to their messy behaviour! This led to some great discussions about how we can help out at home and the children have been practising by measuring water into washing up jugs, making pretend dinners for their ‘families’ in the home corner and have even been designing some trophies, to say thank you to those who help us at home.
Next week, we will be reading the story of the Jolly Postman to begin to think about people who help us every day such a postmen/ladies and lollipop people. We will be posting letters using stamps and envelopes and will be practising crossing the road safely, using our zebra crossing and road sign toys in the outside area.
A big thank you to everyone who attended curriculum evening yesterday! I hope that it was helpful to you all and has given you a little more of an idea about what we get up to each day here in Class One! Next week will be our first cake day of the year (on Friday). Children are welcome to leave their usual snack at home on this day and bring in either 25p for one cake, or 50p for 2. Children must bring their money in a named envelope please, to ensure we have no missing coins throughout the day.
Miss Ingle, Mrs Holmes and Mrs Sabri.
