Welcome to Hippo Class we are a Foundation Stage Two class.This term our learning challenge is "How have toys changed ?" . We will watch Toy Story and base activities around the story. We will focus on how toys have changed over time with children comparing their toys with those of their parents and grandparents.We will also have a visit to the PANTO!!! as a Christmas treat. Our Jigsaw Theme (PSE/PSHE curriculum) is "Celebrating Difference" where we focus on our feelings and the special people in our lives. We have a book swap morning which in Hippo class on a Thursday morning. PE will be on a Wednesday Morning. PE kits will be needed for this.
Homework will be based on reading and sound recognition. The work will be sent home on a Friday and will be based on sounds the children will be learning in class. When reading the children will gain stickers and certificates when they have achieved 25 reads at home and every 25 steps thereafter.
