What a crazy couple of weeks. I am glad to hear everyone got through the snow in one piece! We have enjoyed seeing and hearing all about what you guys got up to when we were off school! We have had a great week, world book day being the highlight. We loved having our partner class (year 5) join us in our learning. They taught us all about adapting a story by changing the character or the setting. Despite having only been in school for a term and a half our Reception children did us proud and came up with loads of great suggestions to help their year 5 partners.
Just a reminder that we are still going to be working on our 'healthy living' topic and any sports or exercise photos and such that you could bring in or pop on tapestry would be awesome.
Next week we will be learning all about money and if you have any spare copper coins (a small handful 20p's worth will be plenty) could you send it in with your child on Monday or Tuesday. Thank you.
Lastly, it is with a heavy heart that I begin my final week of teaching your amazing children. (I will however be here for another week after to support the transition.) I have had a magnificent time meeting and learning with the children of Tregony and Lamorna. They are just brilliant and have made my time in Threemilestone such a happy one. I will miss every single one of them immensely as well as your happy smiling faces that I see on the gate every day. I wish them, and you, all the best for the future and know that they all are in very good hands. Kindest regards and best wishes. Mr Robinson
Friday 23rd February
Hi everyone, welcome back to school after half term! What a super week we have had! Beautiful weather, big smiles and lots of great learning. We have got a host of new readers this week and we are so proud of them all for persevering and now their (and you guys at home) hard work is paying off! Keep it up, reading every day is a great way to support your child at home, both reading to, and being read to.
This week we have mostly been learning all about 'th', our new digraph. Remember to poke that tongue out when pronouncing it and to make sure we are not saying 'f' when we mean 'th'. We have also learned all about number patterns, finding out one more and one less, as well as matching the correct number to an amount.
We have had a super time learning all about Chinese New Year. The year of the dog has sparked some great researching about differences and similarities between the breeds. I am not an expert but Mrs Lobb and many of the children have been educating me. We have learned how to speak Chinese this week along with our JuJu word of the week (French). This week Tregony learned to say 'merci' (thank you).
Couple of things to keep an eye out for:
Next week we have world book day on Thursday where your child can come to school dressed as any character from a book. The teachers will all be dressing up to so any ideas about my costume are welcome!
Our Jigsaw topic this half term is 'Healthy me' and we would love to see some pictures of your child doing their favourite sport or physical activity. This can be sent in, emailed to the secretary C.O. Mrs Lobb/Mr Robinson or posted on tapestry. Any photos, certificates, badges eg. swimming, dancing etc.
Thanks everyone for a great week, have a safe, fun weekend, see you on Monday!
Friday 26th January
Some sketchy weather but we braved the cold to make it outside for bikes and scooters this week, what amazing progress all the children have been making, well done to all the new bike riders!
We have had another busy week learning all about shapes and patterns, along with a little exploration into symmetry. In phonics the children have learned the qu sound and some new tricky words. Keep practising the old sounds if you're not quite on reading books yet, you are all doing so well and hopefully we will have even more new readers next week!
Next week begins the face to face parent meetings, if you have not yet made your appointment with the school office, please can you try and get a time early next week. Mrs Lobb and I are really looking forward to seeing you all, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to grab me on the gate in the morning or at the end of school.
Have a fantastic weekend, look forward to seeing all your challenges on Tapestry!
Friday 19th January
A big thank you to everyone who took part in the Super Hero lunch on Wednesday. The costumes were super and I will post some pictures next week. You might have noticed in the phonics books that we haven't learned any new sounds this week. We have been focusing on learning the alphabet names and getting to grips with rhyming words. Please continue to practise the sounds from the previous weeks in order to solidify the learning. In maths we have been looking at teen numbers and how we make them using ten and some more. We have thoroughly enjoyed our class story this week of Freddie and the Fairy which gave us lots of fun ideas to do in our independent learning.
Well done everyone for another successful learning week, we look forward to seeing you all Monday and hearing about your weekends!
I'm sure you are all exhausted after such a busy week! Another super week of learning everyone. We are so impressed with how many children are getting stuck into their reading and those that have not quite got onto reading books at school are working really hard and will get there soon. We have started our first sentence writing and it is going really well, there were some excellent pieces of writing done by both Tregony and Lamorna which will be on Tapestry soon! So far there have been 8 head teacher awards for this which shows just how impressed we have been by the hard work the children have been putting in. Resilience and perseverance are this term's topic for Jigsaw (PSED) and we have already seen some of that impacting on the dedication the children are showing in their learning.
We are thoroughly enjoying reading all the Julia Donaldson books in class and our independent learning has involved many challenges relating to our reading. We have made stick men, designed ties (for the smartest giant in town), painted the Gruffalo using software on the iPads and a host of other exciting things. We really enjoyed going outside and using the fantastic space we have at Threemilestone. That said we are hoping to get outside more and more and this requires wellies! If you are able to bring a pair in on Fridays that would be a massive help. (You are more than welcome to take them back home for the weekend as they don't need to remain in school all week).
Have a super weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
Friday 5th January
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We have all had a brilliant two days back at school, your children have come back refreshed and with a fantastic attitude, I'm so impressed! We may have only had two days but we have done lots of good learning already. The children have been doing lots of counting in maths and learning new sounds in phonics. We were lucky enough to get out and enjoy some time on the bikes and scooters today as well as making some characters from our class story, The Gruffalo, out of collage materials.
It has been great seeing everyone and we are looking forward to some more super learning next week!
PS: If possible could you send a pair of wellies in with your child every Friday as this would be a massive help. (They will be able to take them back home the same day in case you need them for the weekend!)
Friday 20th December
Phew! What a term! We got there in the end with all limbs intact! Well done reception class! Keep reading and looking at books, playing counting games and practising sounds and tricky words. Most of all, have a fantastic holiday and we look forward to hearing all about it in 2018!
Friday 1st December
What a magnificent week! Three brilliant performances by your amazing children! We really enjoyed putting on the Christmas Nativity and I hope you all had a great time watching it! A massive well done to all the children for practicing their lines at home, it came together beautifully and they sounded just brilliant!
We have another action packed week coming up with lots of Christmas festivities beginning with the panto visit on Monday. Following on we have our class party and our class Christmas dinner which makes for a very busy week!
We are also performing one last time next week which is why costumes have yet to go home, they will be sent home on Friday next week.
Lastly, when you check your book bags please find the holiday learning packs. This has been requested by a few parents and we wanted everyone to have a look. There are some ideas for making maths fun at home along with a set of number cards for you to use. We also included a set of sounds and some ideas for helping your child continue their phonics learning over the break. Please don't think you have to spend hours and hours doing 'homework', just 5 minute bursts is always better. Any questions please catch us on the gate, thank you.
Have a lovely, relaxing weekend and once again a HUGE well done to all the children for a superb set of performances!
Friday 1st December
Wow! What a super busy week! Phew, we all need the weekend to recover! Well done everyone for working so hard to learn your lines for the Christmas show, hopefully with some rest we can all come together on Monday ready for the final rehearsals! Reminder to parents, if you have not yet found your tickets in the book bags, please see me or Mrs Lobb first thing on Monday.
Firstly a big thank you to all the adults who were able to come to pour decoration making afternoon on Wednesday, I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did and the feedback from the children was very positive! Secondly we would also like to say thank you to all the adults who came to the Christmas Bazaar on Friday after school. We sold lots of our decorations and there are still a few that are available. If you would like to purchase your child's sewing kit decoration please bring in £2.00 and we can send it home with them. Many thanks.
Christmas performances next week so I look forward to seeing you all! Have a super weekend!
Friday 24th November
What a super week of learning! Well done everyone for trying so hard learning all of our Christmas performance songs! Parents you can be very proud of them all! We have had a busy time learning all about measuring. The children have enjoyed measuring how high the dinosaur models are and comparing them. We have done some great phonics too and Mrs Lobb is really pleased with how hard the children are working at home to practise their sounds!
If there are any questions surrounding Tapestry please come and see me (Mr Robinson) on Monday before school and I will help if I can. I am really pleased with how many parents are commenting and uploading home learning, if you haven't uploaded anything yet that is no problem at all but it can work really well connecting home/school learning and to show things that your child makes or does that can't be brought in.
You should find in your book bags your words for the Christmas play so please have a read through them (I'm sure you will know them all so well by next week!) and help your child to practise them as it will really help with their confidence when it comes to rehearsals.
Have a great weekend! See you on Monday!
Friday 10th November
Half term seems so long ago! Well done everyone, another super week. We learned lots of new sounds and the children are really getting to grips with their phonics now. Keep practising with them using their sounds books, it makes a huge impact if they have very short but regular practise. Similarly with numbers, any help recognising the numbers 1-10 in particular is really helpful.
We have been learning about how to throw and catch during PE this week. The learning culminated in a spirited game of dodge ball! I was really surprised at how many awesome dodge-ballers we have in reception class. Mr Robinson really tried hard to get Amelia but she was just too good! Well played!
While we are talking about PE, any practise the children can get at doing and un-doing buttons will give them a really big help when they change for PE and likely give them more exercise time.
I would also like the make a shout out for name tags. Please can you check your child has names, clearly written on their jumpers, shirts, trousers and PE kit.
Next week is anti-bullying week and we will be looking at lots of exciting things to do with acceptance and team-building as well as understanding that we are all different but everyone is equal.
Have a great weekend, see you on Monday!
Monday 30th October
We hope you all had a fantastic half term! Just a quick reminder that we are back to school tomorrow (Tuesday 31st) and we can't wait to hear all about what your children got up to over the break! We have gone live with Tapestry and it has been brilliant to see so many people uploading home learning for us to see. It is a great tool and works well as a way of showing us home leaning. If your account is not yet active please see Mr Robinson when you can with your email address written down (please write it as clearly as possible as some were a bit tricky to read) to hand.
Thursday 19th October
We made it to half term! Well done everyone, we have had such a brilliant term so far, the children have been made super progress and we have thoroughly enjoyed learning with them!
We have had another great week with lots of exciting things happening. First we met a real-life Policeman, PC Beckett was really helpful and taught us all about his utility vest and special Police equipment. This was great for us because it helped us learn about the 'p' sound. After that we learned all about 'm' by running a mini marathon around the playground. The children were all superb and showed great running skills and stamina to run for such a long time!
Lastly... don't forget there is NO SCHOOL this Friday the 20th, nor is there school on the Monday the 30th. Please have a look at the blending books and practise with the children as much as you can as it will really help them. Stay positive if they are finding it hard as it is very tricky. Have an amazing week and we look forward to seeing you all on the Tuesday 31st!!
Friday 13th October
We will all need a break after such a busy week! The children have been fantastic, showing some lovely behaviour and kindness between friends. Firstly we had Harvest festival on Tuesday, everyone did a great job and thoroughly enjoyed performing to the rest of the school and parents. We have learned two more new sounds, 'e' and 'n' so ask your child to teach you at home. It as also been a great week for maths as both classes have had some exciting lessons involving counting and estimating (Clever guessing). We have also started learning to blend and segment which has been really tricky but good fun. Overall a smashing week, well done everyone!
We are still aiming to get Tapestry up and running before the holiday however we are still awaiting meetings with one or two parents. Don't forget it's 'wear what you like' on Thursday and NO school on Friday 20th.
Have a great weekend, see you Monday!
Friday 6th October
Firstly I would like to thank all the adults who came to one of our meetings this week, we really appreciate it. We hope to go live with Tapestry before half term so you can start seeing the great learning that your children are getting up to!
We have had another super week with some smashing learning. In maths we have been practicing our counting and trying to use the language 'fewer' or 'less than' and 'more' when talking about two groups of objects. We had lots of fun exploring the maths resources independently which will hopefully give the children a chance to create their own strategies to solve problems.
In phonics we have been learning two new sounds, 't' and 'i'. See if your child can find some words that start with one of the sounds we have covered so far. (s, a, t, i).
We have been so lucky with the weather that we managed to get outside to do some PE this week. The children were fantastic and showed great attention and followed instructions carefully. Football was amazing and I think we have some stars in the making in the cohort! We almost challenged the year 2's to a game but thought better of it!
Thank you all for your continuing support, have a magnificent weekend and we will see you all on Monday!
Friday 29th September
Wow! Another brilliant week everyone! Well done to all the reception children, it is always difficult to go into full time school and the EYFS team are so proud to be learning with your children, they have been epic this week! We have learned our first two sounds, 's' and 'a'. The children were really excited to stick them into their sounds books! Please ask them to show you how good they are at making the new sounds when they bring them home. We were also lucky enough to get a visit from our friend Lester the ambulance driver. A huge thank you to Lester for taking time out to come and show the boys and girls all the amazing gadgets that he uses to make people feel better. We even had a go at lifting Mr Main with the special stretcher!
Well done to all the adults who managed to make it to our Curriculum & Tapestry meeting on Wednesday evening. It's really important that everyone has the chance to attend so Mrs Lobb and Mr Robinson will be running two more meetings to give those parents/carers another opportunity to get that information. We will be running one session on Wednesday the Wednesday 4th October at 2.45pm and on Friday the 6th at 8.00am. Please make every effort to come, thank you.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and see you all next week!
Friday 22nd September
What a fantastic week! Creative arts week has been so much fun in Early Years. We had a great time making Arcimboldo 'self portrait' collages using the fresh fruit and vegetables (very big thank you for providing them to us). We looked at Albert Irvin and abstract artwork, leading to some exciting outdoor roller painting! We have really got stuck into daily drawing where everyone has shown a huge improvement in only the short time we have been practising, so well done team! We are also very pleased to say that the children are settling into the lunchtime routine in a positive way and despite a few bumps have been showing exemplary behavior in the playground.
Next week we will be starting some new learning so have a super relaxing weekend and see you all on Monday!!
Friday 15th September
Well done everyone! We made it through week 2! Another super week of learning together. We enjoyed story time, ICT, some fantastic PE and many more exciting things which you will all be able to see very soon on Tapestry!
Next week is our Creative Arts Week which will involve both reception classes. We will be working as a group on class painting projects and exploring various ways we can use paint and mark make.
We look forward to seeing you all very soon for our Tapestry introduction meeting, until then feel free to talk to Mr Robinson or Mrs Lobb if you have any queries about your child's learning.
Have a great weekend, see you all Monday!
Friday 8th September
Firstly welcome to Threemilestone School! The children who have started this week have been absolutely amazing! We have done masses of learning and had a bucket load of fun along the way. We started the week finding out all about the different parts of the classroom (and where all the fun toys were kept!) After that we did some maths, counting and recognising numbers. We had an great time changing for PE which reminds me, if your child isn't that confident at changing on their own, try and encourage them to have a go before you help them as it will give them a big boost when it comes to them doing it in class. Finally due to the bad weather today we were unable to go outside for bikes and scooters :( however we stayed in the dry and did some fun work on the iPads with Mr Robinson and some awesome music with Mrs Lobb. We have all thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your children, they are a super bunch! We look forward to next week where we can really get stuck into some super learning. Have a really lovely weekend, see you all on Monday!
