Summer 2, Week 1

Welcome back everyone and a big thank you to all who came to our Class Assembly today! It was lovely to watch back some of the video clips from throughout the year and see how much the children have grown and changed throughout Reception. All of them did so well learning their lines and song lyrics, we are so proud of them all!

This week, we have started our new topic of ‘pirates’! Whilst most of the week has been taken up with assembly rehearsals and prop making, we have still managed to create our own treasure maps this week out of tea-stained paper. We have also done a Big Write this week where we created a list of instructions about how to find the treasure on our maps. The children had some amazing ideas featuring deadly volcanoes, sea monsters, traps hidden in palm trees and swamps and some amazing ideas about what was inside their treasure chests. They have thoroughly enjoyed dressing up in pirate clothes this week and having a go in our small world area where we have lots of pirate figurines too.

Next week, we will be learning about some real life pirates from the past and we also have a special visit on Tuesday, from the company @BambuuBrush. They create eco-toothbrushes and will be coming to speak to the children about how we can use non-plastic alternatives, recycle all of our plastic packaging and how it affects our oceans. We look forward to their visit!

Reminders:

A reminder that our Class One and Two joint trip to Woburn Safari is on the 20th June. Children will all need to bring a packed lunch on this day which is in a disposable bag rather than a ‘packed lunch box’. If it is a sunny day, we ask that you apply sunscreen before the children come to school as we are unable to do this or accept any creams into school. If your children are travel-sick and wear special wrist bands or have medication, please let the school office know in advance. Children will also need to come into school on this day in their usual school uniform and with a sun-hat. You may wish to provide a waterproof jacket with a hood if it is a rainy day as most of the day will be spent outside (fingers crossed for sun!)

If you haven’t already, please can parents return their ‘BambuuBrush’ letter to school so we can inform the workshop whether you wish your child to appear on camera or not.

Thank you and have a lovely weekend!
