Child chatter

This is our P4C photo for the term. Please see your child's homework book for the observation sheet to fill in. 

 

Your child takes part in weekly philosophy sessions. Sometimes, to develop their philosophical thinking skills, we will post a picture with a question. For Example: would you rather be a lion or an elephant? 

 

We would like you to have the discussion with your child, using the question cards to help develop the discussion, and then after record some of their response on the ‘Child Chatter’ observation sheet your teacher will give you.

The big robbery 

All the toys have been stolen from our classroom. We have been so busy trying to find who did it.

We found the culprit it was Mr Harding the caretaker because he is fed up of tidying all our toys up. We have promised him we will be better at tidying up in the future.

Letter Land 

This is how we teach children to form the letters at Millbrook Primary School. 

Talk for baking

Every 6 weeks one group work with Mrs Andrew in talk for baking. They will learn how to make either cakes, biscuits, pizzas, pancakes. They will learn a verbal script of how to make the make the dish from a visual map. When they become writers they will then be able to write instructions.

Talk for writing

In reception we use a tool called talk for writing to provide the children with the skills they need to tell and write stories as they move up throughout the school. The children will learn to tell a story using a story map that we create together as a group. We will practise and practise telling the story until the children can confidently do it on their own. When they become writers they will then be able to write the story easily as the format will be secure.

Schema

Schemas, or patterns of play, are seen in many children as they are exploring their world and trying to find out how things work. We plan sessions that take into account the children's schema's to ensure the session is tailored to their learning needs.
