We’ve been reading Potion Commotion by Peter Bently and Sernur Isik.
We’ve been writing our own potion recipes and making potions in the water tray. We even thought of some magic words we could use.
“Potion commotion, make this bubble!”- Rupert
We’ve enjoyed themed activities, with a focus on developing important skills.
Maths; number stories
In Maths, we’ve been learning to use number to describe what we see.
We progressed this skill further by telling number stories.
“First there were 2 ghosts in front of the house, then 1 more flew in, now there are 3 ghosts altogether”
Ask your child to tell you the number story below.
In provision, we’ve been representing numbers on ten frames.
Halloween disco and special lunch
Everyone had lots of fun at the Halloween disco last week.
Yesterday, the lunchtime staff treated the children to spooky decorations and a special dessert.
Autumn 1 week 8 has been a revision week.
In provision, we’ve been playing ‘tricky word BOO’ to revise the tricky words we know.
Each week we will be learning a new poem. We will recite this poem each day. By saying the poem out loud, we can focus on the sounds and rhythm of each word or line. We talk to the children about how this can help us become better readers. This week’s poem is called Pointy Hat
We talk about how a poem sometimes has rhyming words and sometimes doesn’t. We also talk about how a poem can have a fast rhythm or a slow rhythm.

Help at home; light and dark
If you go to any light shows, see any illuminations or go to a firework display over the half term break, we’d love to share your photos in class. We’ll use the pictures to support our topic on light and dark.
