Denby Dale First & Nursery School


The theme for this half term is the Jungle. All the children have been working hard to put the jungle together.

In Phonics we have been learning our digraphs and recapping single graphemes. We are now amazing at remembering capital letter, finger spaces and full stops for sentences. 

In maths we have been learning addition and subtraction with numbers to 20 and have moved onto 2D and 3D shapes. 

We celebrated world book day this half term and the children's outfits were very impressive and worked hard throughout the sessions.

Here are some of the lovely jungle pictures that have been created at home.

Here are some pictures of the home learning that has been done!!  

Thank you Reception class for sharing your hand print. Here is our class tree 

While we continue learning from home I will share the work you are all doing on our class page.

You are all doing such a good job at home, I have seen some fantastic art work and love that everyone is enjoying the weather

We have been working very hard this week. Lincoln has finished his frog spawn diary, Spencer has been working hard with his phonics. Here are some pictures of Reception keeping busy

Daily run - Throughout school we go for a daily run or a wake up shake up session during the day, so that we are always active.

Super 7 Spellings - Every Friday we will have a quiz of the new set of 'Super 7 Spellings' in the children's blue or purple books. These are updated on Monday and revise the sounds that the children have been working on in the previous week. 

Golden time - On Friday if the children have filled the treasure, they are free to choose how to spend their golden time, such as a film in the afternoon or bringing a toy from home.

Special Days - Our special days this half term have been, pancake day where the children have made their own pancake pictures with toppings covering the topic of healthy eating. Mother's day has also been celebrated where the children have made some beautiful cards.
