Spring 2 Week 6

We had a good last week of term in Class 3 and are now ready for the holidays :) !! We really enoyed preparing for the Easter service and spent some time in class going over the different parts of the Easter story. In maths we practised reading the time to the nearest quarter of an hour and in literacy we focused on using commas in our writing. In PSHE&C we talked about how we can be good friends to each other and the qualities that we look for in a friend.

As it is the Easter holidays, no new homework or spellings were sent home this week. Most of the children handed in their homework and spelling books on Monday, however, there are a few outstanding books. If your child has not handed in their books please ensure they hand them in to us on the first day back after Easter otherwise they will not get the new homework or spellings.

We wish you a very happy Easter and hope that you all have a good rest!

Spring 2, Week 6

Here we are at the end of another term! It is hard to believe that when we get back, it will be our final term in Reception but we have lots of fun things in store linked to our new topic of ‘Under the Sea’. Thank you to all who attended our Easter Service this week, we hope you enjoyed joining in with our Easter celebrations. Today, the children should be bringing home all of their PE kits and book bags. Our new homework grid will be set after half term as usual along with our class curriculum grid, to let you know what we will be up to in Class One.

Reminders/ Other

After half term, we will be doing some of our PE lessons up at the school field! If your child does not already have an outdoor PE kit in school, this will be vital after half term. Sadly if the children do not have their PE kit in school, we are unable to let them participate due to health and safety reasons.

If you would like to do any extra learning with your children over the holidays, feel free to research some sea creatures or learn some facts about oceans and coral reefs.

WANTED! After half term, we will be doing some art and craft involving CD/ DVD disks. If you have any that you could donate to class, we would very much appreciate it! We are also a little short of knickers and boys pants in our spare clothes draw so if you have any Class 1 underwear at home which could be returned to us, or if you would like to donate any old underwear, we would be very grateful!

Lastly, we seem to have mysterious collection of apples accumulating in Class One over the last few weeks (8 in total!) Despite our best efforts to reunite them with the correct child, no one is yet to claim them. If you could send them with a sticker on to ensure they are named, or send them in a little bag/ pot, that would be a great help to us in solving this mystery!

Enjoy your two weeks off everybody,

Miss Ingle and the Class One staff.

Spring 2 Week 5

Another week has flown by in Class 3. It was lovely to see some of you at parents evening on wednesday and we look forward to seeing more parents on monday afternoon for part 2! 

The highlight of this week was the Easter journey which we all really enjoyed! It was amazing to see how much the children already knew about the different parts of the Easter story.

This week we spent lots of time solving money word problems. The children practised making amounts using different coins, working out change and solving real life two step word problems! We were so impressed to see how far the children have come in their maths since the beginning of the year! 

In literacy we planned another explanation report, this time the children were able to choose their own topic! We are looking forward to writing up our reports in our Big Write books at the beginning of next week! 

In Art we carried on with our paper weaving and in RE we discussed what Christians have learned from Jesus' teachings. 

We are looking forward to the Easter service next week and to other Easter related activities. We can't believe it's only a week to go until the holidays!

Have a lovely weekend and we hope all the mums have an extra special Mothering Sunday!

Spring 2 Week 5

Spring 2 Week 5.

A brilliant week that has flown by! The children have been excellent learners this week and embraced all the different tasks we have done.

We started this week with some fantastic problem solving and reasoning in Maths. In English, we have written Haiku and Tanka poems.

In Topic, we looked at Egyptian way of life as well as The Egyptian Gods! The children’s work was presented beautifully in this and they were the most engaged in their learning I have even seen them be! Amazing.

Thank you to all who attended parents’ evening on Wednesday, it is always nice to be able to talk about your fantastic children. Don’t forget the rest of the appointments are this Monday!

Also, please return the Easter Egg Hunt letters by Monday so your child can participate on Tuesday!

Mums, enjoy your relaxing Sundays!

Have a lovely weekend.

Miss Gale
