Saturday at Bawdsey Manor

The children slept well last night and ate a hearty breakfast to prepare for a wonderful day in the glorious sunshine!   Our activities have included zip wire, the giant swing, aeroball, coastal walk and raft building and the children have shown amazing enthusiasm, courage and determination in trying new skills.  They are all now very tired and tucked up in bed - another busy day tomorrow!  

Do keep an eye on the photo gallery as we are trying to update it regularly. 

Good night from us all at Bawdsey Manor!

Bawdsey Day 1

We have had a wonderful first day at Bawdsey Manor - blue sky and sunshine, a most unusual sight!  It is very beautiful here.

All the children have eaten well and enjoyed an energetic evening playing Robot Wars.  Everyone is now tucked up in bed and all is surprisingly quiet!

We are looking forward to an action packed day tomorrow and will try to keep adding photos to the gallery so do keep checking back.

Good night!

Summer 2 Week 2

Class 2 have been working extremely hard this week during all of their lessons, especially when completing their phonics quiz with Miss Ingle. Well done everyone!

In English, we have been looking at using adjectives to describe different minibeasts. We used these adjectives to create minibeast riddles for our friends to solve.

In maths this week, we have recapped our addition and subtraction knowledge.

We have also created an aerial view map of our classroom in geography, identified important features found in Synagogues in RE, practiced our catching and throwing skills in PE and used different colours to create a picture of an animal we might find on our class trip next week.

Reminders:

  • Please ensure that your child comes to school daily with a named hat and water bottle.
  • All children will need their named PE kit in school every day.
  • If your child is going home with a different adult, please let myself or Mrs Rule know. If it is a regular occurrence for another adult to take your child home, please write this on a piece of paper to let us know this is fine on an occasional basis.
  • All children will need a packed lunch for our trip on Thursday (20th).
  • Please ensure that your child is in school promptly on Thursday ready for the trip.

Have a lovely weekend

Summer 2 Week 2

Another busy week in Class 3 has flown by! 

This week we have been looking at 'toys from the past' and have compared these to the toys that the children like to play with today. If you have any old toys from when you or the children's grandparents were little, please do bring them in to show to the class! 

In Science this week we learned about the differences between natural and man-made materials. 

In Literacy our grammar focus was the present and the past tense and in maths we looked at solving complex maths puzzles! 

Our Year 3s have been busy rehearsing for the KS2 production whilst the Year 2s were painting using water colours in the style of Monet.

In RE we learned a new hymn and thought about what 'love one another as I have loved you' means to each one of us.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend!

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!
