***DON'T FORGET - PLEASE COME IN AND STICK ANY PHOTOGRAPHS OR NOTES OF LEARNING YOU SEE AT HOME INTO YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING JOURNEY ON TUESDAY MORNINGS BETWEEN 8.40am AND 8.50am.***

***We are very lonely on Monday evenings (until 3.55pm) and Tuesday mornings (8.40am-8.50am) and would love more of you to join us to contribute to your children's Learning Journeys. We would love to see what your child has been up to at home!  You can stick in notes, photos, pictures...whatever you would like to share in their special Learning Journey***

 

 

This week's learning...

We have already come to the end of our first half term

at school! The children have settled in so well and are definitely a cheeky and wonderfully loud part of the Myland community! This week, we have been learning about addition and the process of adding numbers or groups of objects together. We have looked at how we start with one number, add another and end with a result that is a bigger number. We have also met Stanley Stem, a builder who specialises in using maths tools to help us solve problems. See if you can spot Stan next time you visit the classroom!

After half term, we will be studying the festival Diwali and will be immersed in celebration...the start of a very exciting half term! Make sure you write about or take photos of any fun you have in half term that could go into your child’s Learning Journey!

Thank you all for your continued support.

 

 

The children are going to have lots of fun digging in our special 'muddy' digging area at COOL Time. If your child would like to do this without the possibility of muddy, soggy shoes, please feel free to send wellies into school in a named carrier bag. Thank you!

 

 

Don't forget to come in and share your children's Learning Journeys on Monday afternoons and Tuesday mornings!

Phonics and Reading:

 

To help you to support your child's fantastic phonic and reading development at home, we have put together a group of video clips to give you some guidance.  It focuses on the importance of sharing stories together at home, as well as how you can support your child when beginning to blend sounds together.  We hope this helps!

 

http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/sound-pronunciation-guide/ - a guide to how to say the 'pure' sounds that we teach at school.  No more 'muh' for 'm'!

 

http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/parent-tutorial-teaching-sound-blending/ - how to use the sounds your child knows to 'blend' and read.

 

http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/resources/parent-tutorial-preparing-teach-reading-fred-games/ - games that you can play with your child that will help them prepare to read!

 

Wish your child would say more than "nothing" when you ask about their day? Try using these sneaky questions when you chat to them (borrowed from a parenting blog...too good not to share!).
