Friday 8th October

Well done Merlins, another great week at school! 

In literacy we have been reading Monkey Puzzle. We have started using the letter sounds that we have been learning to write words and wrote 'mum and dad' this week.

In our phonics we have learned the sounds 'ck, e, u and r'. We have also learned to read the words 'no, go and the'.

In maths we have been exploring 2D shape. We have been able to talk about different shapes using the words 'straight, curved and sides'. We have also really enjoyed playing with the shapes and exploring their properties.

Wow Merlins, what a brilliant first week you have all had in school! In just five days you have made new friends, found your way around a new building and tried out lots and lots of fun activities! 

Next week is going to be even more exciting because on Thursday you will be having lunch with one of your adults AND meeting everyone in your class. It is going to be great to be altogether at last. We have put some photographs below of some of the things that you have been doing this week so that you can talk about them with your families. 

We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday!
