Welcome to Oak Base!

 This week, we are:

  • continuing to read 'Pete the Cat - Rocking in my school shoes' by Eric Litwin and linking to transitions for Reception
  • reading 'Pete the Cat - I love my white shoes' and telling the story in our small world play tray
  • exploring the phoneme 'l' - we have been making this sound with our mouths and looking at things that begin with this sound e.g. lemon, lollipop, leaf and lips
  • playing 'blend from the box' where we segment and blend words like   l-o-g log, l-ea-f leaf  etc. Playing can you point to your... h-ea-d head, ch-ee-k cheek, h-a-n-d hand etc.
  • problem solving using the idea of sharing. We have 6 cakes, how can we make it fair/ Equal (between 2/3 people)? 

To support us at home, you might: 

  • ask your child about our stories, what can they remember? Can they sing you the song he sings? Where does Pete go? What does he step in?
  • can you keep a look out for things that begin with the phoneme (sound) 'l' when you are out and about or at home, have a friend or family member with a name that starts with our phoneme 'l'?
  • when you are out and about or walking somewhere you might ask 'what do you notice?' can they subitise (recognise an amount without counting)? How many plates, cups, forks etc do we need? How many spaces are left at the table? 




Parent Information:

 With the weather getting warmer, please provide a hat for your child to wear at school to keep them protected.

Please remember to name your child's belongings - we are now taking off jumpers and cardigans a lot more frequently and things can get lost.

Amazing Grazing Trip: A huge well done to all the children who were amazing on their first school trip.  Please see this lovely message that we've received about the children...
