First of all I would like to thank everybody for their understanding and patience with some tricky staff management situations this week. With Miss Thackeray and Miss Lambert in Finland and Miss Pyatt involved in Jury service, not to mention some staff illness, we have had to be very efficient with our staffing. We insist on rigorous consistency in these situations and ensure that any changes do not affect the quality of teaching and learning or our systems.
We are sharing the story of The Three Little Pigs (my favourite tale) and encouraging the children to develop their sequencing and storytelling language using puppets, props, books and audio CDs. The children are becoming much more confident at talking about the characters and settings and we love the way they are acting out the stories using fabulous voices for the characters! In Numeracy we have been continuing learning about division and have had races in the outdoor area deciding who has come first, second and third. Ask your child if they can tell you about ordinal numbers at home – but beware as you might have to do some running!
