Our Topic this week will be

Marvellous Me and My Family

Week beginning: 17/9/18

Here are some areas we shall be looking at in class this week that you could try at home...


In Literacy for this week we will be looking at families. The children will be talking about who is in their families and learning how all families are different. To support this please can we ask that you send in some photos of your families to share with the class on Friday – if possible please could these be photos you don’t mind the children cutting up and making a collage with? (please tell a member of the team if you do not want them cut up)


In maths we shall be introducing the children to the characters of Ten Town. We will be looking at numeral recognition as well as how different combinations of amounts can make the same number (2+1=3, 3+0=3 etc.).This is a simple activity you could do at home with cubes, toys etc. Give your child a amount of objects and ask them to split them into two groups – how many items in each group?

PE and Forest School

Please can all the children have the correct PE kits in school for Mondays (Please check the uniform section of the school website).

Forest School is on Thursdays – please can the children bring in old clothes including a coat that you do not mind them getting dirty and a pair of wellies.

Wow Cards

In Early Years we have Wow Cards – these are cards for the parents or Carers to use at home when your child has had a ‘Wow moment’. Maybe they have achieved something special to them – this could be staying in their bed, eating all their dinner, getting dressed by themselves or writing their name etc. Please bring them in to celebrate with us.

Sunflower Values

At Haydon Abbey we celebrate a different value every half term. This half term we will be talking about resilience and being resilient. If your child has shown our value at school their name will be added to our giant hanging sunflower and they will receive a special certificate to take home with them.
