A Visit to the Library

Onyx class went on their first visit to Manor Top Library this week. We had to leave school and go across the busy roads to find the Library. Everyone was so sensible and the teachers were really proud of how grown up we all were.

When we got to the Library we had a chance to look at the books. There were lots of different ones that we don’t have at school. We enjoyed looking at them and did a great job of putting them back where we found them. Some of us enjoyed listening to the grown ups read stories to us.

Soon we’ll be able to start borrowing the books and take them home to look at. If your child doesn’t have a library card or you haven’t completed a form yet please ask in class. We have some forms so you don’t have to go to the Library. If you have your child’s Library card at home please send it to school so we can keep it at the Library.

We need parents/ carers to come to the Library with us when we go. We are unable to go without extra adults to help us walk to the Library and help us read the books. If you are able to come with us please sign up in the classroom.  We go every other Monday afternoon 1.30-2.30pm but our next visit is November 7th because of the half term break. Unfortunately we are unable to take younger brothers or sisters with us.

When we went to the Library it was a fantastic opportunity for us remember the Road Safety Janene had taught us the week before. We had to make sure to Stop- Look- Listen- Think and Hold Hands all the way there. We pressed the buttons on the Pelican crossings and waited for the green man to tell us to walk. We wore our tabards to make sure we were bright and everyone could see us.

What we are learning? 

  • To read and look at books for enjoyment. 
  • To handle books carefully turning the pages the correct way. 
  • To walk across the busy roads remembering our Road Safety. 

How can you continue the learning at home? 

  • Read books as much as possible. You should read at least one book a day together. 
  • Visit the Library with your child and borrow books to take home. 
  • Remember to always be safe on the roads and remember what your child has been taught with them.

Keeping Safe on the Roads

On Friday 7th October Janene came to visit us to talk about Road Safety. It is especially important we think about this as the nights start to get darker but we need to stay safe near the roads all the time.

She talked to us about the Green Cross Code. Can you remember your Green Cross Code?

We learnt about staying safe near Pelican crossings, Puffin crossings and Zebra crossings. Can you remember which one is which?  We practised crossing them in our classroom.

Janene showed us what the Lollipop person looks like. They help us to cross the road safely but we need to remember to keep holding our grown ups hand as well and remember to walk.

We also learnt about staying safe in the car and that we had to always sit on our special car seat and also put our seat belt on every time. The car seat makes sure that our seat belt is in the correct place for us even though we are little.

Finally, we said goodbye to Spike the Hedgehog and his family and said a big thank you to Janene for coming to talk to us and help keep us safe.
