What we’ve been up to

⭐️Well done to this weeks stars!⭐️


We have learned the sounds f, e, l, h and r this week. The children are doing a great job with their blending and writing. We have enjoyed building words on our phonics train, using the chrome books to practise letter formation and using the natural materials from the outdoor kitchen to make the letter shapes. 


We have done lots of work on repeating patterns using a wide range of media, materials and objects. 

We had a fun P.E. lesson with Miss Tonks 🙂 

We really enjoyed reading the story Mr Gumpy’s Outing. We made a boat, and acted out the story, taking turns to be the different animals and Mr Gumpy himself! They did a brilliant job getting into character, remembering and joining in with the lines the animals said. 🙂

Thank you for sending in your holiday photos, we enjoyed looking through them and talking about the places they had visited, how they travelled there and if their holiday location had any similarities or differences to Youlgrave. The children went on to design a postcard from their holiday destination. 

We looked at the pictures below from around the world and discussed the differences between the different parts of the world; climate, scenery, wildlife etc... and how it compared to where we live in Youlgrave. The children shared their favourite place and where they might like to visit and why. 

It’s not all work and no play...
