Homework Projects

WOW! What a fabulous effort the children have made once again! It was so lovely to see such an array of projects showing off the topics each class has been studying this term – and their talents. We really are lucky to have such creative children!

Thank you to everyone who facilitated their child in creating their masterpieces and to all who came to view the children’s projects this afternoon. Your support, as always, is greatly appreciated.

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!

Whole school walk to Bablake

The children in Reception and Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been invited to watch the dress rehearsal of the play ‘Ye-Ha’ performed by Years 5 & 6. 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,

Mrs Hartwell

**Please note the date is definitely Tuesday 9th July so please ignore the typo on the reply slip section**

Pentecost Celebration – Monday 10th June – children may wear red!

On Monday 10th June the children will take part in our Pentecost celebration.

CHILDREN MAY WEAR RED FOR THE DAY

NO FOOTBALL SHIRTS OR SPORTS WEAR PLEASE!

This day commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit in the form of flames upon the Apostles and the birth of the Church.

The children will take part in lots of activities and will receive a special treat!

An afternoon of science

This afternoon we identified and labelled the different parts of a flower. The children worked very well and so looked at trees too to find out what the differences and similarities are.

We spoke about the importance of these parts and what there main function is.

We also moved our caterpillars into their new home. They were ready for a bigger space and will hopefully spread their wings in the next few days.

It has been a week of new beginnings.

We have become budding authors and wrote our traditional tales. The children worked incredibly hard and are looking forward to publishing these next week.

We began our new topic in maths of fractions starting by finding a half of a shape. We will have this as our focus over the next few weeks moving on to find quarters.

In science we have started our seasonal unit of Spring and Summer. We launched this by going on a season walk around the school environment and in our local area to find signs that spring has sprung.

Our caterpillars continued to grow with 1 making their way to the top ready to make its cocoon. We are very excited to see what is going to happen next week.

Our Summer Term newsletter is now available online.

Have a lovely weekend
Miss Corkerry

A brilliant first back after Easter. It was lovely to hear about all of the adventures the children experienced.

We arrived on Monday to a special delivery of baby caterpillars. The children were so excited and have enjoyed watching them grow already. We can’t wait to watch them as they turn into butterflies.

We began planning our own traditional tale in English and thought of some brilliant ideas for our setting and characters. Three goats and the big bad wolf will be published soon ask us about our story.

In maths we continued to look at sharing and multiplication to practise our skills from before Easter. We have now started to work on money and identifying different coins as well as notes.

We will now start to have two phonics sessions a day, as discussed during the parents evening meetings, to fill any gaps and provide intervention needed.

Hope you all had a wonderful break
