The Pumas children will be enjoying a number of Forest Schools sessions across the year. These dates are in the calendar and newsletter.
On these days, please ensure that your child has two pairs of trousers, two pairs of socks, and multiple layers for their top half. They also require wellies, hat and scarf. They will be outside for the whole morning or whole afternoon so need to be warm enough to get the most out of the sessions.
We loved our first session on 8th November - thank you to everyone for sending in lots of clothes to keep us warm!
Say hello to our class bear, Billy! He has loved coming home with so many of you already and he will continue with his adventures this term!
Billy goes home with Pumas on a Monday and a Friday with children who catch his eye by trying extra hard or doing something extra special.
We hope you have lots of fun with Billy at home and we can't wait to hear all about it!
Thank you parents for all your efforts in maintaining his wonderful diary. We love sharing the entries each week!
Follow these links to play educational games, perfect to practise our school learning at home!
Bonds to 20 in a fun Funky Mummy game! Complete the number sentences to free the mummy!
Bonds to 10 in an interactive game where the pipe needs to be completed to free the whale. Find the correct piece to complete the bond to 10! It can also be changed to bonds for 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
A great game for counting to 20 and beyond - and helps with recognition of these numbers too.
A website with lots of information for parents about what phonics is, how it is taught and how you can help your child. Lots of resources to use too!
A website full of phonics games and resources for children. Start on Phase 3 and move through the phases when your child is ready.
A number facts game where children have to work out the Maths sum to free the funky mummy! A great game to practise basic adding skills.
A game where children have to match the pipes using number bonds to 10 in order to free the whale! It can also be changed to bonds for 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. A great game to practise these number bonds which support other mathematical learning.
A website full of games for Numeracy, which covers all areas of the Maths curriculum. Children will love playing these interactive games whilst practising their Maths at the same time!
Obb and Bob are brothers. They both love to eat but they like to eat different things. Can you feed Bob the real words and Obb the fake ones? A great game for children to practise decoding and blending, and recognising whether words are real or not. The children love seeing the aliens munch the snacks!
Help Pablo finish his invention by passing him the correct shape! A fun game for children to practise recognising shapes and learning their properties too.
Visit google maps and use street view to explore the streets of our local area, starting at our school. What can you see on your travels?
