Making new friends

 

On Thursday afternoon we had a wonderful walk around the park in the sunshine with our new EYFS buddies. A brilliant opportunity to make a new friend and to share with each other what we have been doing in class.

“LOVE MULTIPLICATION”

English

During our English sessions this week: We have started to immerse ourselves into our Read to Write text ‘Rose Blanche’ On Tuesday we found a mysterious collection of object left in our classroom – as you can imagine we had a lot questions about these objects – Who did they belong to? Why had they been abandoned? What flavour was the jam? We are hoping that as we delve further into the themes of the book we might find the answers to our questions

Our grammar focus this week has been on using colons in lists.

Please continue to read regularly with your children at home. Encourage them to read a range of genres – including fiction and non-fiction texts. When you read with your child this coming week please concentrate on pace when reading aloud.

PE/Forest School/Swimming
All I can say is ‘Fantastic’ really super report back from Ms Valentine about their attitude and aptitude during their PE session this week. Mr Holland was also very impressed with their determination to make ‘fire’ during their forest school session with him this week. Thank you so much for getting everybody here on time for their swimming lesson on Friday. Both their new coaches and I were very impressed with their style and behaviour in the pool.

Homework:

I am very sorry but due to some organisational issues homework did not go out on Friday. It will be sent out on Monday with a due date of Friday. In the meantime please can you work on instant recall of their times tables especially x6 x7 x8 and x9

 

Thank you to those who attended the ‘meet the teacher’ presentation on Thursday. I am hoping to put the PowerPoint I used on the website. But if you have any questions please contact the office who will pass on your messages. I am really enjoying getting to know your children – they have worked hard this week – their behaviour for learning has been excellent. I hope you all have a really enjoyable weekend
