Dear Parents and Children,
We hope you had a great half term with lots of fun. Did any of you manage to visit a castle? Mrs Underwood went to London and saw The Tower of London!
This term our topic is titled “Once upon a time...” We will be continuing our traditional story theme through the book “The Jolly Postman, and also reading Goldilocks and the 3 bears, Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood. By role playing these stories using puppets and props, the children will become really familiar with them.
We will be looking at maps and creating our own map for the Jolly Postman to travel around, researching the history of the post/bicycle and our outside role play area will be transformed into “The Jolly Post Office” The children will have the opportunity to design and make stamps, letters and wrap parcels and use other related resources to support their role play.
If you have any related toys or books we could borrow we would really appreciate it and we promise to take good care of them.
We have a music week coming up which will be a lot of fun and of course we will soon begin practising for our Christmas Play. Details of parts and costumes will be coming home during the next couple of weeks.
We continue to have PE on a Tuesday afternoon, so please make sure your child’s kit is in school, particularly on this day.
If you are able to spare an hour to come in and help in Robins in any way we would really appreciate it and you would be most welcome. We especially need help with some cooking this term!
Mrs F Underwood & Mrs Goodman
