Newsletter Issue 13
Friday 6th December 2013
As mentioned last week, a group of our children visited Rodillian on Monday to take part in a Netball tournament. This was a fabulous opportunity to get involved in a local sporting event. But that’s not all, because our Girl’s Football Team also attended a tournament on Wednesday evening at Garforth Academy. Although we did not win any of the tournaments, all children entered into the spirit of the events with real commitment and enthusiasm and we are all really proud of what they achieved. It has been a while since Robin Hood has had such involvement with the community sporting events so I am so grateful to Miss Mees, Mr Malley and Miss Pensom who are doing a great job of facilitating our involvement but also to the children and parents for their support.
The children’s brains must be tired out this week as it has been assessment week! They have been showing us all the fantastic learning they have been doing over the past 5 weeks; the children have made lots of progress in phonics, reading, writing and numeracy and we are all very proud of their excellent achievements. Well done Nursery!
We will be learning all about the nativity story and we will be practising our Nativity performance, so please keep practising the songs at home. We will be making and writing our Christmas cards in literacy and preparing our calendars and making salt dough Christmas decorations. The Christmas decorations will be available to buy at our Christmas nativity shop. In numeracy we will be consolidating our maths learning and using our skills to play collaborative maths games.
