Feeding the five thousand!

In our RE lesson this week the children acted out the story of the feeding of the five thousand.  After this they wrote the story and illustrated their work.  In mathematics we have been problem solving and this has proved a little tricky, we will be continuing this next week.

Thank you for the photographs and heights of the sunflowers we are looking at them over the weekend and will decide a winner on Monday.

We have a busy week ahead with leaving assemblies, award ceremonies and Mass and ending with a party on Friday. The children are invited to wear a costume that makes them look like a toy for our toys party.  They can bring in a favourite toy but please no electronic toys that may be damaged.

Books, books, books…!

Thank you to everyone who supported our Book Fair earlier this year. With the funds raised, we have been able to buy new books for each classroom from Nursery to Year 6! These books will be shared with the children by teachers to promote reading for pleasure and to support their learning.

We were absolutely delighted with the support that we received, and know that the children will cherish sharing these stories with their teachers.

We will also be buying books to support the wider curriculum, so thank you!

Teddy Bear Picnic

We had a great Friday with our teddy bear.  During the morning we made observational drawings of our teddy bears.  They were very good!  In the afternoon we played games and had a picnic with Paddington.

VISIT FROM ZOG!

This week we have been busy exploring jigsaws.  We had a visit from an Alien called Zog who had never seen a jigsaw before.  The children had to tell him how to put it together and they found out how tricky it is to give instructions!  They then designed and made  their own jigsaw.  In mathematics we have been recapping addition and subtraction and looking at 3d shapes.

This week we are going to be looking at teddy bears of different shapes and sizes.  On Friday we are going to have a Teddy Bears picnic.  Please would you send a teddy into school on Friday morning.  We will send out a reminder letter later in the week.

Thank you for the old toys and photographs you have sent in this week, the children have enjoy talking about their parents toys.

Father’s Day activities

  1. We had a very busy week making cards and book marks for our superhero dads. On Friday we enjoyed sharing lunchtime with our dads even if it was inside due to the weather.

    We have also been exploring mathematical  problems and writing stories. We are praying for our brothers and sisters ready for their special day next week.  We also made a cup and ball toy like we played with at the Black Country Museum.  This week we are looking further at how the toys have changed over time and are looking forward to finding out which toys were your favourite.   It would be great if you could send in a picture of your toy,

The children will be walking to Bablake School on Tuesday 9th July. We will be leaving school at 9.15am and returning in time for lunch. Please could you ensure that your child is wearing appropriate clothing according to the type of day i.e. wet weather coats, or in the unlikely event of sunshine, sun hats and sun-cream!

If your child needs an inhaler or medication, please make sure they bring it with them.

Please complete the reply slip on the letter sent home yesterday and return back to school as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Black Country Museum

Despite the weather we had a great day at the Black Country Museum.  The children were extremely well behaved and really enjoyed the visit.  We found out a lot about toys of the past and we will be continuing this work in the classroom.   Below are some of the photographs of the day and we will put some more in your child’s book.
