Summer Fayre – we are holding a meeting after school on Monday to discuss any outstanding items that need to be completed before the Summer Fayre, next Saturday. Please come along and support this event even if it just means helping out at some point next week, wrapping or labelling things, all help is appreciated. Feel free to bring the children.
We still require the loan of gazebos for the day and donations of teddy bear and packets of sweets. If anyone is able to bake some buns or a cake for our cake stall please would you contact Clare Perry on 07834600343 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t forget to hunt around for the most unusual shaped vegetable you can find when doing your weekly shop and children, come dressed in your fanciest fancy dress outfit to win an exciting prize. Mr Malley is taking names for the football games he has kindly agreed to arrange for us and will even be stepping in as goalie for a penalty shoot out, so if you fancy a game see Mr Malley and he will make sure your name is down.
This week we have started a new unit of Design and Technology in which we are designing, sewing and stuffing our own toy animal. An important skill that we have focussed on is the children’s cutting skills; cutting carefully around their template on paper and then card before transferring this template onto either felt or silk and cutting it out. For this week’s home learning, please support your child in developing their precision and strength when using scissors. They could draw an animal on paper or card and then cut it out, print a picture with curves and corners off the internet or even use a template to cut an old piece of fabric. Please support your child in turning the paper as they cut as opposed to rotating the scissors right around the outline. The children can then stick this in their home learning books.
