Welcome to the Cubs News!
This term our topics are Construction, Celebrations and Christmas.
Nursery Rhyme Week
We have had a Nursery Rhyme week in Cubs. Each day we looked at different traditional rhymes including Two Little Dickie Birds, Hickory Dickory Dock and Incey Wincey Spider.
Children In Need
For Children In Need day we came to school dressed in our pyjamas for the whole day. We made Pudsey Bear biscuits and some of us went to Mr Liddle's Jaguars. They read stories to us and asked us lots of questions about the book they were reading.
This term we have been on a couple of visits to Forest Schools at William Hildyard School. We have been learning how to climb trees and playing in the mud kitchen. We have collected all sorts of nature pieces and looked at the wildlife in the forest. We had a robin, who was very friendly, come to join us in our circle time. Some of the forest is overgrown with nettles and we saw a wasp nest. To remind us not to touch or go near these things, Mrs Liz showed us the red triangle. We used the ropes to make spiders webs and our very own swing. At the end of our session we enjoyed hot chocolate and a biscuit. We cant wait to go again.
The WoW Sheet is a way for you to record those moments when your child says or does something that makes you think "wow"!
We are always interested in any special moments that the children experience in their home environment.
Please click on the links above to print off our WoW Moment tickets and let us know what your child has been up to out of school
We would love to share the childrens news in our circle time and we will place them in their Learning Journey
Please can we ask that you label ALL clothing, bags and bottles as lots are getting muddled!
Book Bags will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned on the following Wednesday.
Quotes from the Children
Here are some links to some games we like to play at school:
This is a website full of phonics games for all phases.
Lots of practical and fun games to play.
Fun learning through play helps children achieve Foundation stage goals. Teach 3-5 year olds, initial sounds, colours, compare and order, counting, matching and mouse skills at home.
Phonics games will help your child to practise sounding out words, which will help them to read. Initially, children will learn basic letter sounds, such as "c-a-t" for "cat". Later they will move on to sounds such as "th", "sh" and "ch", then "oo", "oa" and so on. Once they recognise a few basic letter sounds, they will be able to work out what a written word says for themselves, a skill which they will be very proud to show off!
Counting. matching and ordering maths games
Please click here for some ideas that are recommended for children in the early years some of which we use in school and the Cubs will be familiar with.
Hello, my name is Paddington Bear and I am from darkest Peru. I was found at Paddington station by Mr and Mrs Brown and that is how I got my name. I am a very kind and loving bear and my favourite food is marmalade. I like to spend my time having adventures with people who are helpful, polite and always try their best. If you like, you can take pictures of our time together, but YOU must write about our adventure in my book so I can keep it full of wonderful memories Try your hardest to sound out your words and write on the lines. If you take me home on a Friday, please return me to school on a Monday and if I go home on a Monday, please return me to school on a Friday.
Let the adventures begin!
