We are incredibly lucky to have Miss Ali and Mrs Talbot working with us in Bees Class.

PE will be on Wednesdays, PE kit must be in school and labelled with your child's name.
Book bags will be given to your child as the term continues, once given out they will need to be in school EVERYDAY.
OUR LEARNING FOR AUTUMN ONE
'I like my teddy because...'
While we are settling the children into Longshaw we are going to be learning about teddy bears! We are even going to have a teddy bears picnic with our favourite teddy from home. We will be exploring two well known texts about bears. 'Where's by teddy?' and 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt.'
During this time we will be playing lots of games to get to know your children as much as possible! The children will spend time getting to know their new school and classroom. We will explore the creative area by accessing collage material, developing our love of reading by sharing a story together or with a special reading buddy. We will sing number nursery rhymes like '5 little monkeys' and 'hot cross buns.'
'Me and my favourite things...'
We will then spend some time talking about our families but using the story 'Peace at Last.' Which is also about a little bear. We will then spend a few weeks getting to know what your child likes, such as their favourite colour or their favourite toy. The children will use a story to support their learning and encourage them to discuss what parts of the story they like and why.
Children will continue to develop their friendships with the other children and staff within our class. We will spend lots of time learning in our provision together. We have water, sand and building blocks! Children will also draw a self portrait to be displayed in out classroom.
Please feel free to ask any questions!
I am on the door in the morning and at home time. I am happy to help the best that I can. We are excited to welcome your children into Longshaw and for us to begin our learning journey together.
