Ruby Class have settled amazingly well into school life this half term. We have been very busy making new friends and exploring our indoor and outdoor environments with them. We have enjoyed having school lunches for the first time and we especially love fish and chip Friday! In our phonics lessons we have begun to learn our letters and in maths have practised our counting skills and have developed our knowledge of repeating patterns.
We focused on the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and have loved this story so much we can now all recite it together without reading it! We visited the wilderness to hunt for the bear and even set up our own parts of the story outside- luckily we had our wellies for the squelchy squerchy mud! There were lots of opportunities for us to develop our storytelling skills as we set up our own small world, using lots of resources to create this as a team. We learnt lots of facts about bears and enjoyed finding out all about them- did you know the moon bear received it’s name because of a patch of fur on it’s chest shaped like a crescent?
Overall it has been a very busy, happy, fun and exciting first few weeks at school for Ruby Class and we are all really looking forward to the rest of the year.
