Next week we will be going on our exciting trip to Café du Village! You will have received information regarding which day your child’s class are visiting. Please keep an eye on the weather forecast and send your child to school appropriately dressed with a jumper/cardigan/light jacket if needed and shoes suitable for walking there. We will get the bus back to school.
- Reading books should be returned to school daily so that the children can also read in school and it is important that you tick the children’s communication books when they read at home.
- As the weather is beginning to change please make sure your child comes to school with suitable named outdoor clothes; a raincoat with a hood and rain boots, which they can change into to go outside when it is wet. Please label all items with your child’s name!
- Spare clothes: please remember that accidents do happen and it is very helpful to keep a spare set of named clothes in your childs cubby basket. Please include socks!
- Tanzania Day: We are dressing up in non-uniform for Tanzania Day this Friday 21 October and donating 10 RMB each. You can dress in the Tanzania flag colours, something linked with safari or maybe something else! This will help raise money for the Kitefu Primary School in Tanzania.
LEARNING THEME: HEALTHY CHOICES
THE BIG QUESTION: AM I MAKING HEALTHY CHOICES?
We will continue to talk with the children about healthy choices, particularly in relation to diet and exercise. We will be asking the children to think and talk about the healthy choices that they make and how they could make even more healthy choices every day.
The children have enjoyed the story ‘Oliver’s Fruit Salad’ by Vivian French. We will continue to use this book to help us talk about different foods. We will also share ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’and Judith Kerr’s ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’. See a link to the story of ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’ here.

We will continue playing some simple phonics games with the children to develop their listening skills.
We will consolidate sounds the children already know. Check inside phonics packs to see if there are any new letters to learn. If you would like to check how the sounds are pronounced here is a useful link.
The children will continue to make repeating patterns, challenging themselves to make 3 part or even 4 part patterns. As we are going to the cafe we will need to be ready to count out coins to pay for our healthy snack and drink so we will continue to work on counting carefully using coins and making simple practical additions.
Pattern, repeat, coin, count, how much, how many, add, and, all together
Children use everyday language to talk about money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.

Deze week kijken we terug naar alle reizen die we gemaakt hebben de voorbije weken. We gingen op reis met kikker en egel en vlogen samen met de 8 schijfjes banaan de wereld rond.
We maken een reiskoffertje en vullen het met onze mooiste herinneringen.
Naar aanleiding van het kinderboekenweekthema `Voor altijd jong` beginnen we volgende week met een nieuw thema `Houden van...`. We zullen in de klas een familiestamboom maken en praten over onze grootouders. Kan u enkele leuke familiefoto`s mailen naar email@example.com of meegeven met uw kind? Dank voor uw medewerking hierbij.
