This week at Gray's Farm - W/B 06/09


Week Beginning: 6th September 2021


This week in nursery we will  be settling in our new children with the support of our existing nursery children. 

We shall be building new friendship groups and routines. 

Our story theme is based on a book called “Maisy goes to nursery” you can find out about our daily and weekly activities and how you can support your child at home.  

This will be  located on the board outside nursery. 


This week in Reception we will continue to settle in the children as they all attend together building up to longer days by the end of the week. We are looking forward to the children having their first school lunch on Wednesday. We are also going to be learning the names of places around school e.g dining hall, office as well as the names of important people. We will then be making our own maps of the school. 


It’s has been so lovely seeing all of the children again. All children have settled in well and are raring to go for the Autumn term. In English this week, we will be doing some cross curricular learning with Science and learning all about the four seasons. We will be thinking about the similarities and differences between the seasons. 

In Maths, we will be working on number and place value, with some extra learning on forming numbers accurately. 


Welcome to Year 2! 


In Writing this week, we will be focusing on our main clause ingredients which are a capital letter, end mark, all it's words (subject and verb) and only having 1 idea.


In Maths this week, we will be focusing on our place value which will include estimating where numbers go on a number line and partitioning 2 digit numbers into different ways. 


PE days are Tuesday and Friday and your child can come in in their PE kits on these days. Please make sure water bottles and uniforms are labelled.We are looking forward to getting to know you all and having your child in our class. If you ever have any worries or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact Miss Gillies or Miss Wallington. 


This week year 3 will be working on extending  their place value skills in maths.

They will be revisiting skills they already know and increasing their knowledge about main clauses - Nouns, verbs and adjectives. 

They will begin their topics in Geography and Science as well as Ict and Pe. 

Pe days for year 3 will be on Monday and Wednesday. Children are expected to come into school wearing their full pe kit on these days.
