Summer 1, Week 2

What a busy week we have had in Class One. After having a long week end we came back on Tuesday full of energy to learn. On Tuesday we were lucky enough to have an amazing afternoon out with Sporting Futures at the Leys school in Stevenage! The children were taught how to maypole dance and we learnt all about celebrating the beginning of May and the start of the summer. 

We were able to hula- hoop, limbo dance, hook a duck, along with many other activities (if you haven’t already, check out our gallery page above!)

The children thoroughly enjoyed our trip and were all so well behaved so. A big well done to all of them!

We have been hard at work looking at how important the oceans are to us and how we can look after our planet. We looked at materials that can be recycled and those that can’t and children had a hunt around the school to look for man-made and natural items.

The children really enjoyed looking around the school and discussing how to look after our world. We have lots of boxes now in class one all for recycling.

This week we have continued our “under the sea “topic, our role play has been transformed and we’ve been looking at all the different layers of the ocean. The children were then tasked with colour mixing to create a painting of their own layers of the ocean. This will be a work in progress as next week we will add in all of the sea creatures. 

Reminders

  • Now that we are into summer uniforms, socks (and tights if it is a cold day) should be white please, not navy blue.
  • We are also finding that many of the children are not reading on a daily basis at home. As we move on to more formal learning, it really is vital that children read their books with a parent or big sibling every night at home. It really does make such a difference your child’s level at school and is vital to ensuring your children progress through a range of book bands. A recent study concludes that if a child reads for just 10 minutes every day, they will experience and be able to use 1,800,000 words in their vocabulary in the school year, whereas a child who only reads for one minute a day with only gain up to 8,000!
  • A reminder that children should have blue shorts, a white t-shirt, a blue hoody or jacket and plimsolls or trainers in their PE kits. Spare socks are also a must as the girls who wear tights need something on their feet if we go to the field.
