There are lots of exciting events taking place this half term. The dates are posted on the “Calendar” section of the school website for your convenience.
With our Finnish visitors and our Year 6s return from the Residential trip this evening, the half term has got off to a very busy start. Year 6 set off bright and breezy on Wednesday morning to Robin Wood and Miss Gascoigne has been giving me regular updates on the fabulous time had by all. We hope that the children came back full of enthusiasm following their adventure.
There has also been some useful E-Safety info added into the “Parents and Carers” tab. This includes some websites which may be useful when teaching your child about E-Safety at home.
Welcome back to the last half term of the year! It was lovely to see everybody back today and all full of stories about trips and activities they had been involved with over the holidays. Our classroom looks amazing; we have a busy seaside area, travel agents (where I booked a sneaky holiday!) and a fabulous caravan.
We jetted off on an aeroplane to Spain this week. It was very hot so we were lucky we had thought about summer clothes and how to keep safe in the sun. We have been writing postcards about our adventures and are really focusing on writing down all the sounds we can hear and making sure we form all letters correctly. Names are coming along brilliantly so thank you for your support with that. In numeracy we have been recognising numbers, counting and matching and writing numbers all by ourselves!
Next week we will be boarding a boat and heading off to the cold Arctic Circle. We will be deciding what to take with us and will be busy packing our suitcases. We will be recording our adventures in a diary using our best handwriting. In numeracy we will be practising counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and we will be grouping objects into groups of 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We have an exciting week of topic planned! We will start by locating the cold countries on maps and then we will be making ourselves some very yummy ice lollies. We will also be carrying out an investigation to see what happens when we put an ice cube in a coat! What do you think?
