Hello Owls and Owl parents,
Welcome back for your second exciting and busy term at Stilton.
The children have settled in really well to the routines and we will continue to build on this as we add daily Collective Worship to our timetable this term.
This term we will begin rehearsing for our first Nativity play so there will be lots of singing, dancing and performing going on. We will learn about Autumn celebrations from our own culture as well as others, covering events like Bonfire Night, Diwali, Remembrance Day, Children in Need and of course Christmas!
We will also be learning more about our bodies and managing our own hygiene by talking about brushing our teeth. Our home corner will be transformed into a Hospital giving us the opportunity to explore new vocabulary through play.
In Phonics we will be moving on to blending sounds independently, using the sounds we have already learnt as we continue to be exposed to the rest of the single letter sounds.
In Maths we will explore and create patterns and then develop our understanding of number, focusing on subitising, recognising numerals and counting accurately.
PE will continue to be on a Wednesday morning so please come into school in your PE kit on these days.
As the weather changes please ensure warm coats, gloves and hats are in school every day. We do offer free flow for the children to choose indoor or outdoor play so it is crucial they have everything they need to support this.
Please continue to support your child's learning at home by using the Phonics videos provided and sharing lots of stories, providing opportunities for counting or noticing numbers in the environment. Lots of real life experiences help too!
Thank you very much,
Mrs Dabo and the Owl team
