Talk Topic 3

Sunday, September 24, 2017

Following on from Friday’s ‘Jeans for Genes day’, this week’s Talk topic states

‘Lots of people wear jeans. Why?’

We are asking the children to consider why this is. Have fun finding out why people you know do or do not like wearing jeans.

Autumn Term 2017

Friday, September 22, 2017

Welcome to a new year in our Nursery class. We have had five new children join us, while many children from last year’s groups have moved onto the Reception Year.

We will spend this term focusing on ourselves with our theme being ‘All About Me’! This will include looking at our special relationships, learning more about ourselves and the world in which we live.

Alongside our play-based learning, Mrs Compton and Mrs Eremita will also be continuing their Lift off For Language groups this term. We hope that all children within the nursery setting will have a chance to participate in one of these 6 -week sessions throughout the school year as they are aimed at boosting the speech and language development of our young pupils.

 

We look forward to seeing your children and yourselves throughout the year!

Talk Homework

Sunday, May 14, 2017

The last two Talk topics have created some interesting discussions, particularly when asking how much chocolate is enough.

This week’s task asks children to:

Choose a favourite character (can be an animal, person or cartoon-real or fictional) and discuss appearance and personality.

Summer Term 2017

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Our Reception and Nursery classes have had a fantastic start to their new topic ‘Princes and Paupers’. We enjoyed a Queen’s Tea Party at the start of term and ate scones and jam while sipping our beverages. Children were very polite and well-mannered after our talk about how to treat people with kindness and respect.

Our outside area has had many new updates also, with the children playing in dens and parking their vehicles at designated, numbered parking bays to help with their numeracy skills. The mud kitchen has also had a revamp and the children have been making mud pies a plenty.

Our smaller outside space has a new shop in it with children already selling many items. Ice-creams are a particular favourite and it is pleasing to see many of the children exercising their literacy and numeracy skills while serving behind the counter.

Talk Homework

Saturday, April 1, 2017

This week’s Talk homework, with our move to Primary in mind, asks the children:

‘What change would you most like to make in our school?’

Please encourage your child to discuss the things they already love about school and what change they think would make St. Lawrence an even better place to be.
