Spring 1 Week 4

What a fantastic week have had!! The highlight this week were the two Art days! The children had so much fun and produced some amazing art work; don't forget to have a look at all the pictures on our website!

This week we also practised adding and taking away mentally using our knowledge of place value. 

In Literacy we wrote a non-chronological report about St Ippolyts school. 

A polite reminder to parents that children are expected to complete all 5 home learning tasks this half term. If your child has not yet completed them, there is still time to hand in work next week. Every child who completes all 5 tasks will receive a certificate. If your child is unsure of how many they still need to do, we will be happy to let them know.

Please remember that we are a nut free school. If your child brings in birthday treats which contain any traces of nuts, they will unfortunately not be allowed to hand these out; even if you have removed the nut flavoured chocolates (this includes boxes of mixed chocolates such as Celebrations, Roses etc). Thank you for your understanding.

We hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy the snow!!!

Spring Week 4

In Class 2, we have had a busy and creative week!

In our English lessons, we looked at when we should include exclamation and questions marks within our sentences.

In maths we recapped our knowledge of addition and subtraction.

During our arts days, we had the opportunity to create some amazing pieces of art based around our Caribbean theme. We can’t wait to show you some of our art on display the main foyer during our open session on Monday 11th February.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Leake
