Back to school

Back to school today and we have been on top form all day. We enjoyed learning our new sound ‘r’ today. We loosened up our bodies and fingers with playdoh disco. The we went to start our new role-play outside, our Fire Station. We have erected a pole now we need to paint it black. We might also need to have some fire drills to make sure our firemen and firelady skills are up to scratch.

Our new topic is ‘People who help us’, this has come from our topic plan ideas that we shared at the end of last term. As you can see we had some great ideas!


Miss Irwin has told us she has got some special people to come and meet us over the next few weeks based on what we wanted to learn. This week we are learning about fire and we are going to be learning how to use wow words to describe fire.

In maths today we found fairy dust on the floor and then saw the Naughty fairy. She had left us a message which said we needed to go on a hunt for some special signs. We learnt these signs were called add signs. Which we can use when we add 2 groups of things together. It tells us that the when we add groups together the number gets bigger. For our first day of addition we were excellent. Who knows how big our maths brains will be by the end of the week!

This morning we also practised our number recognition by using the Fireman’s hose to squirt off  the fire numbers.


Then in the afternoon we learnt about the Christmas story and how special Angels are with Mrs Armitt. We all made our own halos with a special word about fairies on them.

We are learning about the Christmas story so we know all the characters and the main event to help us with our Nativity. ‘Angel Express’. Our production of the Nativity is in the second week in December- Tuesday 9th 2.15pm and Wednesday the 10th at 5.30pm, so we have a lot of practising to do.
