Independent Learners

We are encouraging our children to be independent learners. You can help with this by giving your child the opportunity to dress and undress themselves, help with jobs at home and to be responsible for bringing their book bag, lunch bag and PE kit into school.

 

 

Welcome to RM

 

A big welcome to all our children who have come back to St Christopher's after the summer break and to those who are new to our school! We are delighted with how well the children have settled into RM.

 

Sunny days

outdoor learning is an important part of the early years curriculum so the children spend a lot of time outside. On sunny days please ensure your child has suncream, a cap and a water bottle. Thank you.

 

PE

PE is on a Tuesday. Please can you ensure that your child's school uniform, coat, PE kit and PE bag is clearly labelled with their name.

We already have a lost coat and jumper. Can you check at home to see if you have an extra one please? Thanks

 

Book Bags

Please can your child bring their book bag to school everyday as we don't have a set day for reading. Your child will bring home a reading book. Please feel free to write any comments about how they got on in the reading diary. Your child will also bring home a library book for you to share.

 

Water bottle

Your child can bring water into school in a water bottle with a sports cap. The bottles need to be labelled with your child's name.

 

RE

Our RE topic after the Easter holidays is ‘Good News’.

During the first week we will be focussing on the fact that everyone has good news to share. To support this we are asking the children to bring in any good news from home eg letters, cards, emails, photographs, cuttings, certificates etc. which recall your or the children’s good news. Please can you ensure that your child’ s name is on the back.

 

Thank you

We will be looking at why it is important to keep healthy and how we can do this. We will be talking about healthy food, hygiene, exercise and relaxation and the importance of sleep.

Good News

 

Our RE topic is Good News.

The children have enjoyed sharing any good news they have. 

We have listened to the story of Pentecost and talked about the good news that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit so we can tell everyone about Jesus.

We said that we can't see the Holy Spirit but we can feel the effects. Just like we can't see the wind but we can feel the effects of the wind.  We went to the dream room and we went outside to explore the wind using streamers and windmills.

 

We planned a Pentecost celebration and wrote invitations.

We made an Easter Garden

We have been looking at the book 'Funny bones'.

We have been focussing on the first page.

We went to the Dream Room to listen to the first page and then create our own story map to help us remember it. We have put actions to it and are enjoying reciting the poem.

Spring 2

Our topic after half term will be animals. We will start by focussing on pets. We would love to hear about any pets you have. Feel free to send in photos of your pets. Please remember to put your child's name of the back. Thank you.

 

Spring 1

Our topic for this term is Winter. We have enjoyed discussing what we think Winter is like and the types of clothes we might wear in Winter. 

We have looked at animals that live in cold places. We enjoyed doing the 'blubber test' to see how fat keeps animals warm in the cold weather. 

We have enjoyed freezing water and melting ice. 

We are now moving on to weather and weather forecast. 

 

Autumn 2

​When we came back after half term our topic was 'Harvest'. This linked to the whole school theme.

We read the story Rosie's walk and talked about all of the things she may have seen on her walk around the farmyard.

We made sequenced the story and enjoyed making bread.

Thank you to everyone who made scarecrows as part of the school homework project.

 

The BFG

To celebrate the life and works of Roald Dahl we listened to an abridged version of The BFG. The children loved the story. As the BFG catches dreams we decided to talk about our own dreams. We visited the Dream Room, which was like the BFG's cave and talked about the good dreams that we have had and any not so good dreams. From this we decided to make dream catchers. The children enjoyed weaving the string in and out of the holes. This was a great activity to further develop their fine motor control skills.

 

We created a sensory story by retelling the story using sound effects and actions. The children enjoyed performing this to the nursery children.

In maths we were learning about capacity. We discussed when things were full, empty and half full. We introduced non-standard measures and compared the capacity of different containers. Finally we decided to make a tasty drink for the BFG. The children had to decide and record how many cups of lemonade, black currant and orange juice would be needed to make the perfect drink!

 

 

Autumn 1

This half term our topic is 'Myself'
