We have to apologise for a typing error on our newsletter. The phonics/writing evening is the 27th September not October, as stated in ‘Dates for your diary’.
We have started to send home phonics worksheets with your child. We would like to say a big thank you to all who have supported their child to complete them and return them to school. More information will be shared about these on our writing evening. Thank you.
Hope the week is going well. Just a quick reminder, after the break the Reception children will be left at the school gate to walk around by themselves. Reception staff will be on the playground and at the gate to make sure they are ok. We are looking forward to the start of the final term on Monday.
We have had a fabulous day at the Black Country Museum. The children were very well behaved and really enoyed the day. We played with toys and had to decide if they were old or new toys and also whether they would have belonged to a rich family or a poor one. We walked around the village and went on a barge, watched nails being made, visited a sweet shop, a hardware store and cake shop. We found out that you had to go to the toilet in a shed in the back garden! We also discovered why it was called the Black Country, sorry about the colour of our socks! Below are a few photographs of the day with some more in the photograph gallery. A big thank you to the parents that helped us today, without your help the children would not be able to experience these trips.
We had a busy last week, below show some of the photographs taken during role play. We were receptionists, shop keepers and doctors.
We also made Easter cards, had a Easter Egg hunt and importantly found out the real meaning behind the Easter Celebrations.
We would like to say thank you for the lovely cards and gifts and hope that you all had a happy, holy Easter.
When we come back we will be planting and growing, recognising and using numbers to twenty, writing and role playing in our new Superhero head quarters.
