Topic Web Autumn 2 

We have learnt the story of 'Not Now Bernard'. The monster in the story came into our classrooms over the weekend and made a mess in our book corners! 

                               

 

We have also spend time looking at the popular story 'The Gruffalo' In the ICT suite we had a go at drawing our own pictures of the Gruffalo. 

 

Our Next book focus will be 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'

 

Come back soon to see photos of this years Christmas Nativity. We will be doing 'A Wriggly Nativity'

 

At Saltdean Primary we have five Learning Powers that we try to remember to help us to maintain a growth mindset. 

In Reception, we introduce these learning powers for the first time. We have been talking to the children about our first two learning powers, which are 'Have a go' represented by a monkey and 'Persevere' represented by a tortoise. 

The children have been using resources to make these animals and we have displayed them in our classrooms to remind us to always have a go, and keep trying when things get tough!
