This week the police came to visit us. They told us how they can help to keep us safe, and showed us the equipment that they use too. We made porridge on Tuesday, but had a ‘visitor’ who ate it before we had a chance! We were all very shocked at this, but the children became detectives and found lots of clues as to who ate the porridge.

In Maths we have learnt the names of 3D shapes, and have begun to describe them.

The children have been introduced to a new member of the class this week – Barnaby Bear. Barnaby Bear is going to be visiting the children’s homes for a sleep-over each night.

Thank you to all the parents that were able to come to our Stay and Play sessions. As requested, attached to Letter Link are the reading strategies that we use to prompt the children during Guided Reading sessions that may be useful for you to use at home when the children are reading to you.
