Welcome back everyone!
We hope you have had a fantastic Easter.
This term we are investigating 'I wonder how I keep healthy'. We will be learning all about our senses, healthy eating, sport and exercise, plants and growing.
I have attached this half term's home learning menu.
Please complete one activity per week and upload into your child's portfolio on ClassDojo for us to share with the class.
If you have any problems or wish to discuss the tasks, please come and see me.
Have lots of fun, we look forward to seeing everyone's work and giving out lots of Dojo points!
Next Thursday (3.3.22) is World Book Day and children can come to school dressed as their favourite book characters.
As not all of our children attend on a Thursday we are going to have two celebration days. That means that Seedlings will have a dress up day on Tuesday aswell.
Children who attend both days can choose whether to dress up for one or both of them.
We will be enjoying lots of stories and sharing favourite books throughout the week. If there are any particular favourite books you would like us to share, let us know.
Welcome to 'Seedlings Class' everybody!
Some children are returning to school after the Christmas holiday and some children are coming to school for the very first time. How exciting is that!
In nursery, there are two teachers and four teaching assistants. Miss Zdrava comes at lunchtime too.
Mrs Hedge and Mrs Allen are the teachers, and Mrs Mitchell, Miss Harrison, Miss Evans and Miss Leach are here to help too.
We have lots of fun-filled activities planned, and we will also take notice of the things that you like to do so that we can do more of them.
My name is Ms Hedge and I teach in Nursery on a Monday and Tuesday. I am in school all week because I am also an Assistant Head Teacher and SENCO. That means I look after lots of children right across school.
I have worked at Kirkby Avenue for a very long time and have taught lots of boys and girls who are now grown-ups! That makes me feel very old!
I have two grown up boys of my own too, we love football and really enjoy going to matches.
I love stories too and look forward to sharing lots of your favourites with you.
We think very carefully about learning and how to make it fun for you so you will enjoy coming to school.
See you soon and we will all have fun learning together.
My name is Mrs Allen and I am the teacher in Nursery on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I have worked at Kirkby Avenue for a very long time - my first ever class here will be starting sixth form or college this year!
At home, I have got a little dog called Ted and an almost 3 year old boy. He’s just a little bit younger than you and loves ‘Paw Patrol’. Who is your favourite pup? Mine is Marshall.
My favourite story is 'Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy'. Come and tell me about your favourite stories.
Hi, I’m Mrs Mitchell. I have worked at Kirkby Avenue for many years now. In my spare time I enjoy seeing my Grandchildren and going on holiday. In school I love singing songs with the children. I hope you have your best singing voices ready.
My name is Miss Harrison. I have worked in Nursery for a few years now and I love it! At the weekend I enjoy going to the seaside. My favourite place to explore is Scarborough. I can’t wait to hear about all of your adventures when you come to school.
Hello I’m Miss Evans. I work all week in Seedlings Class. I like going to the Wildlife Park with my two children. My favourite animal is the giraffe. I enjoy reading stories with my children and our favourite story is Owl Babies. I love Bill, he makes me smile. I can’t wait to see you all!
Through our learning this term we are going to explore this question, "I wonder how the world is filled with colour?"
Here is an attached menu of activities for you to choose from, one task per week.
Remember to upload your work onto ClassDojo, we can share it with your friends and don't forget you will earn Dojo points!
Have fun with the activities, we cant wait to see your learning.
Parent Forecast Autumn 1
Reading in Seedling Class
The early stages of reading with our children will be retelling stories they have heard. Children will often want stories they love to be read to them over and over again, this helps them to be able to retell the story without actually being able to read the words.
We want children to enjoy stories because this will support them in enjoying reading independently when they move to that stage of their reading journey.
