Each, Peach, Pear, Plum

Each, Peach, Pear, Plum

This week we have been retelling an old, but still very popular rhyming text. ‘Each, Peach, Pear, Plum’ is an ‘I-spy’ text. As you read through the story, characters are hidden within the pictures. The children have found much delight in finding them and in re- finding where everyone is hiding. They have also enjoyed commenting where the characters were from. Many knew the nursery rhyme: ‘Jack and Jill’ and were equally pleased to be able to re-cap the ‘Three Bears’ story from last half term.

The children were all very eager to try the fruit pies made this week; they were so popular that they only lasted for one day.

Outside, the children have continued to use the ‘fire- fighters’ role play equipment, and have been creating fire engines using the big wooden bricks; tackling fires and rescuing more animals!

The Foundation children took part in a 2-minute silence on Wednesday for Armistice Day.

Children in Need activities were well received today. It has been lovely to see so many happy faces having fun whilst dancing; hand painting; playing ‘find-the-bear’ and taking part in craft activities. Thank you for your kind donations.

Our cooking activity next week will be making oat biscuits. We will be using: flour, dairy and soya free margarine, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and oats.

  • We are collecting recycled materials for our junk modelling station. Due to allergies that we have in school we would only like containers that have not had any contact with food e.g. tissue boxes and tubes. Please could the items be brought in a bag and labelled, if possible, with the date they are brought in. Thank you.

 Message for Reception parents:

Every Tuesday and Friday your child can change their home reading book. This book will be matched to their current phonic knowledge; therefore, they should be able to read the text using their phonic skills, as well as their knowledge of the tricky words they have learnt to date (i.e. I, the, to, no, go, into). Please ensure that they read these books as often as possible, to encourage fluency in their reading.

If there is any further support or guidance that we can provide regarding home learning, please do not hesitate to ask. We are always happy to help!
