Drawing, Counting and Acting

Another busy week in RKM. We have been doing some observational drawings of leaves both inside and out.

Maths has been all about counting and putting numbers in the right order.

Friday was PE day so we all enjoyed acting out “GOING ON A BEAR HUNT” and we also tried lots of balancing and stretching exercises.

Numbers,numbers ,numbers.

This week we have been looking at or numbers and the different ways they can be represented. The children chose a number and then used pebbles, numicon, dominoes, ten frame and of course fingers to show the number.

We have been discussing what makes us unique and we came up with  class pledge WE CAN DO IT !  Following on from this we have been thinking about our helicopter stories  and our story this week was about 2 children who never gave up, even though they couldn’t skip, they kept on practising until they could! There was no shortage of volunteer actors and everyone was keen to participate.

Thank you to everyone that is listening to your child read on a regular basis, it is very much appreciated.

First trip to the Library and our PE lesson!

Well its been another busy week in RKM. We had our first trip to the library where we were introduced to Miss Whiteley. She told us how to handle the books and how to conduct ourselves in the library.

On Friday we got changed into our PE kit and headed off to the hall where we all moved round the room like an owl, swooping and flying around.All the children enjoyed themselves and I am sure we will get quicker and quicker at getting changed.

On Wednesday we had an interactive white board fitted which we started to use straight away. Its great for the children to see how letters and numbers are formed and then to have a go on the board themselves!

We have all got our reading books now, so please listen to your child read regularly.

Enjoy whats left of the weekend !

Phonics, Helicopter Stories and Fun !

It`s been another busy week in RKM.We have started our Read, Write Inc sessions, where the children learn all the sounds in readiness for reading.

The children have all been given a reading book, which I am sure you will encourage your child to look at with you and explain the pictures to you. Remember to fill in the reading record!

The topic book is The Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and the children have listened to the story, watched a video of the story and then we wrote down a gist of the story.On Friday we made a helicopter story out of the book, which means the children got chance to act the story out.There was no shortage of volunteers and all the children enjoyed the activity.

PE is starting this week so please remember your child’s kit and make sure its labelled.

Hers to another exciting and fun week in RKM.
