In our lessons this week, we have been learning about people who help us in school. We have learnt that a teacher is a very busy person with lots of jobs to do. We also found out that the mid- day assistants come into school to help us at lunchtime; they make sure we eat our lunch, have a great time playing with our friend, keep us safe and even help us if we get hurt or have an accident. Mrs Stevens came to talk to us too and she told us about her special job as the Early Years Lead. She must make sure that all the reception children are doing the best learning that they can and support the teachers too.
In maths we have been learning all about more and fewer, we are getting very good at using the new mathematical language that we have been taught. We have looked at different quantities and compared them as well as looking at numbers. Our parents could test out our new knowledge at home in various different ways to see what we have learnt.
We have also been busy learning about an upcoming celebration this week. We found out that Harvest Festival is a celebration of the food that is grown on the land. We celebrate this in many ways including food collections, church services, volunteering and donating. Some children grew tomatoes and beans during lockdown. They have enjoyed picking and sharing them with their families and we have loved hearing all about it.
Next week will mark the end of our first half term in school. The children have all settled brilliantly this term, especially as many of them missed so much time at their nursery due to lockdown. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow in the first half term and we are excited to see what the next half term brings!
