Clore Shalom School

“Engage, Inspire, Achieve”


Next week we are learning all about 'Space.' We are learning through the text 'Man on the Moon.' We will be having a picnic on the moon, making some explosions, making alien soup and lots more. Get ready for another fun week. 


Some children are ready to move onto ditty sheets, these will come home in their bags on a THURSDAY. Please practise these at home. If they have not got one of these they will get a blending book to keep practising the skill of segmenting and blending. 


We are in need of large brooms and mops, jerry cans and old flowers. If you have any you wish to donate we would be very grateful. 


If you have any questions, please get in touch. Thank you for your support as always!

A Pet Visit 11/11/22

Next week we are learning through the texts of 'Farmer Duck' and 'Rumble in the Jungle.' 


Please keep us updated with their phonics and remember to write in their reading record book. We will be reading with them once a week. 


New sounds this week- we haven't taught all of them some are being taught next week. So do not worry if they don't know them! 


Please practise their blending books- if they find it hard model it to them first and don't forget to practise their letter formation! 


We are looking for old mops and old brooms. If you wish to donate any we would be so grateful. This is for large mark making outside to develop gross motor skills. 


Thanks for your support and Shabbat Shalom!

This created a week of curiosity and investigation!!!

This week we learnt how to say 'sorry' for Yom Kippur

Week 4- Our Bodies and Our Teeth


What a wonderful week we have had where we have continued to learn about 'Ourselves.' Oral health is a huge part of the new curriculum and we have been learning how to brush our teeth properly! This was a lot of fun. We have also started an experiment over time. We have placed an old real tooth in coca cola - we will see what has happened to the tooth over time. 


We are still embedding all our routines. This week we have focussed on the welly boot station. The children now know if they go into the digging area or mud kitchen they need to change into their boots (even if they do go on the wrong feet!!)


Phonics is moving at a fast pace- please practise your sounds and send us some videos on tapestry. 


Next week we are learning about Yom Kippur and Dinosaurs! If you have any more conkers then send them our way. 


Have a lovely weekend,


The Reception Team

Week 4 Fun

In JS Reception learnt about the festival of Rosh Hashanah. We dipped apple in honey and enjoyed tasting it and made Rosh Hashanah cards by cutting and gluing Rosh Hashanah pictures. We can now all say “Shana Tova” to our friends. 

Rosh Hashanah learning

                                                                Reception Week 2 


We are so proud of the children, they have settled so well and are loving 'Clore' life. Next week we are learning about 'worries.' We will be using the texts 'Silly Billy' by Anthony Browne and 'The Worry Monster' by Anna Llenas. In addition to this we will start learning about Rosh Hashanah and we have lots of creative activities so that the children can deepen their learning.


Thank you for your support this week - keep us updated on tapestry with all your home outings and activities. 


Shabbat Shalom,
