Newgate W2

The children are settling into the everyday life of Newgate beautifully.

We have established a lovely routine with our phonics sessions each morning. This week, we have been focusing on the sounds: m, s, t, i and a. The children have been identifying those sounds in our classroom as well as practicing their letter formation using the rhymes to help them.

This week Newgate have been looking at ways to deepen their understanding of the number system. We have sharing counting rhymes, danced and sang to counting songs as well as identifying different numbers using the digits on our hands.

Thank you for providing the pictures of your beautiful homes it has lead our learning this week as the children each had the opportunity to discuss their own home. Following this the children made models, drew sketches and painted their houses. What was even more fantastic was that each child spent time reflecting upon each other's work looking for celebrations and one thing they might like to focus on next time. Super teamwork!
