First of all welcome back everyone. Sorry for the missing blog last week, with it only being 3 days the time flew by. 

Firstly apologies as the evidence me app is causing us some teething problems esp with observations uploading videos. Unfortunately this week all of Angela's observations were deleted while the tech team were trying to sort the problem out. Fingers crossed the bug is sorted soon. 

Welcome to our 3 new families who have joined us this term and are settling into St Peters well.

Last Friday we had a visit from Joe who is in Y6. He came in to talk to us about his adopted pig Max. Joe goes each week to tend to Max's needs, feeding and cleaning him. He showed the children pictures and asked them questions. Joe also told us that Max is very cheeky and likes to sit in his water tray.

This week our letter focus was 'h' . to sound this letter we hold our hand in front of our mouth and breath as if you are panting saying,h'h'h'h. To help with the formation we say 'from his head to is hoof and over his back'.

This week we have talked a lot about poppies and why we wear them. Cbeebies has a lovely short programme about this. We made our own poppies to remember the soldiers.

Another favourite topic this week was of cause 'Bonfire Night' we talked about being safe watching fireworks and how loud they might be. We created our own fabulous firework pictures using string and fluorescent paints. See display in kindergarten.
