Term 5

Welcome to the Cubs News!

This term we are learning all about Animals

 

 

We will find out about how to look after them and also enjoy a visit from Zoolab! We will have some pets visiting us too!

We will also continue to enjoy phonics, reading, maths activities and lots of writing!

Photos from this Term

 

We have had a visit from our friends in Madcaps. They brought some of their pets for us to look at and stroke if we wanted to. We asked them some questions about each of the animals. We saw a rabbit who was only 6 weeks old, a hamster who loved running around on the carpet in her ball. three guniea pigs who we loved to stroke and a cheetah gekco. Can you guess why it is called a "cheetah" gekco?

WOW Moments

WOW Moment Record

WoW Moment Ideas

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

Reminders

Sun Hats And Cream

Hopefully we will be experiencing some beautiful sunny days in the coming weeks so please ensure your child has a sun hat and suncream clearly labelled in school.

Please can we ask that you label ALL clothing, bags and bottles as lots are getting muddled!

Book Bags

Book Bags will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned on the following Wednesday.

 

 Educational Links

Here are some links to some games we like to play at school:

Phonics Play

This is a website full of phonics games for all phases.

CBeebies

Lots of practical and fun games to play.

Crickweb

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.

Family Learning (Phonics Games)

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!

Maths Games

 Counting. matching and ordering maths games

IPad Apps

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.
