Our Senses…

This week in Paddington class we have been learning all about our five senses.

Today, each group were provided with some cups which had a secret smell inside. Their task was to use their sense of smell to guess what was inside each cup.


I wonder if you can tell your family what the 5 senses are?

We need wellies on Monday!

Next week, we shall be starting our new theme ‘Who’s in the forest?’

We have put notices in the classroom windows to ask for the children to bring in some wellies on Monday.

As part of our immersion we will be going to explore the school forest and see what wonders we can find!

Thank you for your continued support.

What time is it? It’s ERIS time!

Every Thursday, children in Paddington class have ERIS time (ERIS stands for…Everyone Reading In School). The children are allowed to lay down, get comfy, close their eyes, drink water and listen to a story. It is my favourite time of the week!

We read together, laugh together, predict what might happen next and even think about how the character might be feeling.

However, today (Friday) the children asked me the following questions…

‘When is it ERIS time again?’

‘Can I choose a book for ERIS time?’

‘Can we have ERIS time today as well?’

There was no way I was going to decline an opportunity to share another story, so this week we had ERIS time TWICE!

It just goes to show…children love books and we should always provide them with every opportunity to enjoy them!


Paddington…top secret tips for getting Dojo Points!

Every child was sent home yesterday with their new key skills books. Please hand in key skills on a Wednesday morning in the key skills tray. You can get 2 dojo points for having a go!

You will also find your login details for Mathletics and Phonics Bug in your red reading record. You can get 1 dojo point for Mathletics and 1 dojo point for Phonics Bug.
