If they are playing with water and different sized containers, can they half fill a cup?  Can they fill a container?  Do they know when it is half full?  Do they know when the glass is empty?  Lots of playing (even in the bath) using this kind of vocabulary would be great.

If you are going to make mocktails, could you encourage your child to half fill their glass with water then fill it to the top with apple juice?  Could it be half full with orange juice then topped up with water to fill the cup?   Could more than two liquids be mixed? Why not pour yourself a drink and get your child to pour themselves a drink, whose cup contains more?  Whose cup contains the least?

Send in your photos of these creations!

New reading books have been added to Oxford Owl.  

We have been practising writing our numbers correctly.  Please continue writing them at home with the correct orientation.  You can use paper and pencil, a stick in sand, writing in the air, make them out of play dough, etc.

We have also been learning our number bonds to 10 (two numbers which make a total of 10).  Have a go at making number bonds to 10 using practical objects, e.g. spoons and forks, pens and pencils, two different  types of toys.

Extra challenge:  write out the number sentence....4 + 6 = 10

 

Week 7 

Goldfinch will start their outdoor learning sessions on Tuesday 17th October. Please dress in comfortable/old clothes with a waterproof. Please send wellies in a bag on this day to change into for the session.

 

Thank you for support with reading.  Your child's book on Oxford Owl has been changed.  Please keep up with the reading!

 

Week 6 - please remember to bring your photo of a grandparent into school ready for our art lesson.  Please continue to read regularly at home.  Books are changed twice weekly and the Read Write Inc. text is available on Oxford Owl (also changed weekly)

Homework from 29.9.23- 5.10.23

 

On Thursday 5 October 2023 marks National Poetry Day and we are going to celebrate this at school with poetry performances from each class across school.  

 

Art

Please can each child bring into school a photograph of one of their Grandparents (ideally of just their face).  They will need this for Art on week beginning 9th October.  It should have their name on the back of the photo.  

Home reading

The children will continue to bring home 2 reading books a week.  One will be on a Monday and another of their reading day.  The book should be a RWInc "book bag" book. This will link to your child's RWInc group and it may even be linked to the book they are reading that week in school. The book will contain the sounds they are learning in school. 

 

Please can children keep their reading books in their bookbag so they are ready to read with their teacher on their reading day and in case we get extra reading opportunities.

 

In order to support your child's reading, we ask that you read with your child as often as possible and write in the reading record to show that you have read. We are also setting the RWInc book each Thursday for your child to re-read at home. Please see example below of ideas for comments in the reading record. We do monitor home reading as it is imperative the children read and re-read books to build their fluency (reading speed) and expression. 

 

Please try to read little and often and daily if at all possible. 

We assess the children's phonic knowledge and reading every half term.

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
