Autumn 1, Week 4

Class One was greeted this week with a bit of a mystery on Monday….a lost satchel in our outside area! Upon inspection, we noticed some envelopes, stamps, paper and royal mail signs inside; it was clear who the lost bag belonged to…the Jolly Postman!

Class One set to work writing letters to the postman to alert of his lost bag. They added a contact number so that he could call the school and signed the letter off with their names in a polite way; the Class One teachers were very impressed with our sounding out skills. We have also built our own post office in class this week to sort out all the postman’s letters. We have been adding stamps onto our envelopes (and choosing first or second class varieties depending on how quickly we want our letters to reach our destinations) and have also been weighing out parcels, using the weighing scales. Other activities have included, buying items from the post office using 1 and 2p coins, creating new decorative door numbers for our houses, drawing pictures from the Alan Ahlberg story ‘The Jolly Postman’ and even dressing up as postal workers, complete with letter bags and royal mail hats!

Reminders

  • Thank you for some of the WOW forms we have had in so far. It is lovely to celebrate your children’s successes at home with the class and we look forward to seeing some more soon! More WOW forms to be handed out soon.
  • A reminder that next week is our Harvest Festival at St Ippolyts Church. The church service starts at 9:15 and features songs and showing from some of the older children and of course, the giving of any donations by the children of St Ippolyts School.
  • Lastly, as you may be aware, new data protection regulations came into effect this year across the UK. As a result of this, schools and organisations are no longer permitted to distribute names of classes outside of school (such as in the form of class lists for parties and Christmas card lists). We appreciate that this is a little inconvenient to parents but hope that you will understand. Should you wish to form a class list yourselves by speaking to other parents outside of schools, you are welcome to do so.
  • Lastly, we are looking for donations for Class One spare underwear (especially girls knickers please!). If you have any that you would be willing to donate to our shared class supply, we would be extremely grateful as they always come in handy for our little ones when accidents happen!

Thank you and enjoy your weekends everybody!
