Another fantastic week in the Elephant class, where they have been practising sound talking words, listening for sounds at the start of words and their names. The Elephant class have been labelling and name writing. We have been on an Autumn walk and collected different leaves and looked at the colours. Your child will have their first reading book and library book today (as discussed in the information morning) It is really important they stay in book bags. Both their reading book and library book will always be changed on a Friday.

Thank you to those, who were able to make the information morning. Next week the children will be bringing home their first reading book and reading record, we will be having our first PE lesson in the hall as well as visiting the library. You can ask your Elephant about assembly on a Monday and who won the most amount of Dojo's each day (these are interactive stickers, which will be introduced next week). We will continue to look at the Owl babies, the colour monster as well as finding more rhyming pairs. We are learning to sort in groups in Numeracy plus so much more. The Elephants are having lots of fun, listening well and we are very proud of them.
