Today the children had fun learning all about the Chinese New Year. They loved the prawn crackers and the sweet and sour sauce! Here are a few photos of our afternoon. We hope you all have a lovely rest and break.
Yesterday, the children enjoyed a pancake themed afternoon. They choose what toppings to put on their pancakes and had out some pancake related activities.
Just to remind you that we are inviting parents to come and have a look around our outdoor and indoor provision tomorrow from 2pm. Our children are looking forward to giving you guided tour!
Just a reminder about the children bringing in wellies for tomorrow.
We have had such a fun animal day today organised by our School Parliament. It started off with us having a little parade showing our fantastic animal clothes to Ms Mckerrow’s class. We then made an amazing trail of coins kindly donated by you. The children loved this activity and both classes worked so well together as a team to put the trail together.
We then went on to making some brilliant woodland animals out of clay, the children were so creative with their animals. We were then very lucky to receive a visit from Mak’s mum who is a vet. She kindly brought in some pets for us to stroke and also some equipment in for us to role play with. We learnt a vet’s role and what some poorly animals need to make them better. We even listened to Pepsi the dog’s heart beat using a stethoscope! Thank you so much Mrs Jaki for bringing the animals into school.
We have been doing lots on problem solving and using star words such as ‘First, then, now.’ For example, ‘First there were 5 boys playing football, then 4 more more boys came, now there are 9 boys playing football.’ The video ‘Solving problems in a first, then, now structure’ reinforces this on ‘Maths with Parents.’
Our spellings for this week are –
It would also great if you can reinforce the use of capital letters whilst your child is reading their book. Many thanks.
As you are aware, our school parliament have asked the children to dress as animals for the day in exchange for a small voluntary contribution. Children can wear onesies, costumes or even just a mask. We have also been asked to do a class fundraising activity so we are teaming up with Mrs Mckerrow’s class to see if we can make a trail of coins the length of our school hall. We would be very grateful for children to kindly bring in any copper coins you have at home on Thursday. The money raised will be going to Bluebell Wood and the RSPCA. Many thanks, we will share our trail on the blog!
Slight change in plan. We will no longer be going to the woods this week but instead the week after. Please bring in wellies for the following week (week starting 12th Feb). Many thanks.
