Welcome Back!

We hope you are having a lovely Easter break!

We have been informed of some exciting changes to our PE lessons for next term! Coaches from Sheffield United will be teaching PE to our class on Friday afternoons.

This means our PE day will move from Wednesday to Friday. The children will therefore need to come to school in their PE kits on Fridays instead of Wednesdays from this week onwards.

Also we have a new exciting mobile library! The children will be given the opportunity to choose their own library book (fiction or non-fiction) this Tuesday. They will then be able to exchange it for a new book every Tuesday. Reading days will remain the same.

Also we would love any junk materials, for example ceral boxes, kitchen roll tubes, egg boxes and especially plastic bottles as this topic’s theme for Reception is ‘It’s a Pirate’s Life.’

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all.

Holy Week

This week the staff and the children have had a lovely last week.

We have done some fun Easter Maths this week with Shape hunts and Easter bonds to 5!

In RE we have been learning all about the Easter Story and Holy Week, which we finished off with our Stations of the Cross walk and the children blew me away with their knowledge.

The children have done us proud this week and we felt it only right to treat them to an Easter sweets hunt, an Easter bonnet parade, a movie afternoon and some amazing dance battles.

Here are some lovely photos of our week. Enjoy the Easter holiday’s everyone, See you after the break!

This week…

Just to remind you that tomorrow is non-uniform day. We will be having a sponsored dance in the afternoon, donations are very much appreciated to ‘The Good Shepherd Appeal’ on parentpay.

If your child is making an Easter bonnet for the PTA competition they are welcome to wear their Easter Bonnets into school on Thursday and we will do a little parade around the playground later in the day. More information is at the bottom of this week’s newsletter. Don’t forget if your child has decorated an egg or made a bonnet to send a photograph tonight to enquiries@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk by midnight tonight. Thank you!

Our Week…

We have had a lovely week this week doing lots of learning and playing. The Year 1 children have been learning the explorer ‘Captain Cook’ so hopefully they will be able to tell you a few facts as they were sailors on his ship!

We have also been learning about ‘Palm Sunday’ in RE and we made our palms and recreated the scene where Jesus rode on a donkey into Jerusalem. Here are some pictures of our lovely week.

Non-Uniform Day – Monday

 Just to remind you all that it is non-uniform day on Monday the 29th March. The children can wear fancy dress or simply their favourite outfit. This is for The Good Shepherd Appeal, the Good Shepherd Appeal is a vital local charity for families in need in our diocese and our classes are asking for your support! If you would like to donate, this can be done through parentpay. Thank you, have a lovely weekend.

Non-Uniform Day – tomorrow

Just to remind you that tomorrow as it is non uniform day to help raise money for Comic Relief, the children are invited to make a £1 donation via parent pay to wear something red or non uniform. Due to covid we ask that children do not bring any accessories i.e. a red noses

. Thank you.

Junk Modelling

We would appreciate any junk materials if you have them at home as the children love using them, for example cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, egg boxs. Also as a part of RE topic growing, we will be watching cress grow, if you have any empty yogurt pots that would be brilliant. Many thanks.

What a lovely week…

We have had such a lovely first week back together as a class! Thank you to all our wonderful children for making it so special. We have taken part in book day activities and have really enjoyed our science week. Most of all, we have enjoyed playing together again as a class and being really happy. In science week, we have taken part in activities around superheroes, Spy Magnus, Super girl, Commander Classify, Captain Peeko and Billy Bookhead. We enjoyed a visit from Wilfrid the school tortoise too!

Please enjoy looking at our photos…

Our Favourite Books

If it’s ok, we would like to keep your child’s favourite book in school until next week so we can share them with the children that are returning to school. If you are coming back and would like to bring your favourite book to share that would be lovely. We can not wait to have our class back and see everyone together! Have lovely weekend.

This week…

Hello everyone, we hope you have had a lovely break. We are starting a new topic called ‘New Life’ this week. It would be lovely if your child could bring in a photo of themselves this week from when they were babies as we will be talking about changes from being a baby to now. Many thanks.
