Topic – Jungle / Woods

This week the theme is Jungle / Woods. There are animal cutters to use in play-dough, numbered elephants to count, and hidden animals in the garden that the children can enjoy searching for (such as Hippo’s up a tree and a Zebra on top of a wall. Who knew they could be so agile?!)

The children will be encouraged to do some independent writing using various pens and pencils.

They will have the opportunity to have a go at improving their fine motor skills and do some careful snipping into paper with scissors, and improve co-ordination skills such as catching a ball.

If you have any story books based in Jungles or in the Woods, we would encourage you to read them with your child this week. Obvious stories include Jungle Book and Tarzan to Winnie the Pooh and his adventures with his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods.

Newburgh Primary School – Open Evening

Rainy Days

Just to remind you that we let the children go outside in all types of weather. As it is now getting colder and wetter, can we please ask that you bring in wellies for your child to change into. That way they can splash around outside and not worry about shoes getting wet. Also, make sure your child is wearing a water-proof coat/jacket.

Also, we are still keeping the hall ventilated by having doors and windows open, therefore, we would suggest that your child comes in wearing plenty of layers!

My Nametags

In order to reduce lost property / clothing or items ending up in the wrong bag, we would highly recommend using ‘My Nametags’, and not only that, but ‘My Nametags’ will give Noah’s Ark 24% of each order. Here’s how you do it:

  • Go online
  • Find Noah’s Ark – our id is 12551
  • Follow the simple steps on their website to create your labels from thousands of possible design options. When you are happy with your choice, you should proceed to the checkout where you will be asked to enter our school id (12551).
  • My Nametags will then pay 24% of each order back to us and you will be able to stick your child’s name on pretty much anything!
