Nyewood CE Infant School

Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

We are the Sycamore family!

What a fantastic week we have had returning to school! It has been so lovely seeing some of you again and meeting some new faces too!

This week we have enjoyed getting to know each other through lots of different activities. We have also learnt about all the new rules and routines. 


In Mathematics we have been reminding ourselves of our counting. Some of us worked with numbers to 10, some to 20 and some to 100. We also practised reading and writing numbers too!


In our Writing lessons we explored our new focus text for the next few weeks; Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper. We really enjoyed this story and getting to know it by acting it out, hot seating the characters, making puppets and much more.


We read Luna Loves Library Day in our reading sessions and got to explore the library and our reading corners in the classroom. 

We had Art lessons this week too where we learnt some new sketching techniques like hatching, cross hatching, shading and stippling. We then drew our own self portraits using mirrors or copying a photograph of ourselves. We were really proud of our work here!
