We have had another busy week in the FSU this week; we started the week practising Fundamental Movement skills in our PE with Mr Ansell from Saints. We created self-portraits using only paper and scissors to cut the shapes we needed. Towards the end of the week we talked about our feelings; what makes us happy or sad or excited, then drew a picture of ourselves. Every single one of the children said they were happy so that made us happy too! To finish the week we had our favourite activity... Show and Tell!
We have also been practising our number recognition and subitising in Maths. During Show and Tell we also had the opportunity to practice counting in 2's with the add of some very clever Smarties!
Phonics is continuing and the children are beginning to learn their initial sounds well.
We hope you have a lovely weekend

I apologise that you can't see the drawings very well but trust me when I say they are all very happy!
We have reached the end of week 4 already and we have made lots of new friends throughout the FSU. We are beginning to learn our sounds and you may find that some of the older children are beginning to use these sounds to 'read'.
Every morning for the past 2 weeks we have been doing PE in the hall at the request of the children! It has been a great way to start the day and energise them ready for all their learning. We have varied the type of exercise but generally it is high energy moving and dancing to the likes of Dolly Parton and The Spice Girls!
Also this term we have been looking at the changes of the seasons and talking about the leaves falling from the trees.
Next week we will be discussing our families and their occupations so if any one has any interesting or unusual occupations you would like to share with us please let me know and although we can't invite you in we can collate some pictures and text via email and we can share it with the children in class.
We hope you have a great weekend and stay as dry as you can!
See you on Monday

This has been a fantastic first week in the FSU, the children arrived, said goodbye and settled extremely well and we had very few tears all things considered! We have welcomed lots of new 2 and 3 year olds into our Pre-School and they too have enjoyed their new beginnings.
During our first week in the Reception Class we have started to learn our sounds in phonics; by Thursday one of the children said he “could already read!”, we have all played turn-taking games, used our music bag for singing and we even changed for PE and went out on the field for some physical activity. All in all it has been a busy and fun-filled first few days and I predict a positive beginning to a lifelong love of learning.
