This week..

This week in our RE lesson we have started our new topic ‘Our World’ discussing how precious our world is, how we can look after it. We thought of one wonderful in our world for every letter of the alaphabet. The children have also enjoyed singing ‘he’s got the world in his hands.’

Today we have been learning about the Historian Mary Anning, you could ask you child what they know about her? The children loved spending the afternoon making dinosaurs out of junk model materials and printing fossils into playdough.

Don’t forget its PE day and the Library trolley tomorrow, thanks Miss Oliver 🙂

Beautiful Butterflies

Over the last half term we have been watching our caterpillars grow into beautiful butterflies. Today we released them, and watched them fly away.

The children were so excited, and loved watching the life cycle journey of a caterpillar!

Reminders..

This term our PE day will be on Friday, Sheffield United are coming in to deliver the PE sessions.

Children can also swap their library books on a Friday.

As the weather is getting hotter we would recommend the children to bring in a summer hat (with their name in) and a water bottle.

You can apply sun cream to your child in the morning, but we please ask if do not send it school with your child due to allergies unless your child has really sensitive skin.

Please can we ask that all children bring a bag of spare clothes in their bag or leave it on their peg at school, the children often get wet or dirty when playing in our outdoor area.

We are running low on helmets for our lovely scooters and bikes, if anyone has any spare to donate we would really appreciate it.

We hope you all had a lovely half term!! Thank you 🙂


Pirate Party!

What a wonderful way to end our pirate topic!

Don’t forget that we will be doing PE tomorrow, so remember to wear your PE kits.

Thanks

Miss Oliver 🙂

Wonderful Wildlife

We have had such a lovely day out in the woods for our wildlife trip.

The children spoke about seasonal changes, went on a hunt to find as many mini beasts as possible and then created some beautiful artwork using natural resources from the woods.

This afternoon we even went on our very own bear hunt!

Library Day

On Friday the children loved looking through all of our Library books, we made a book blanket to look at and discuss some of the books then the children had the opportunity to read their favorites with their friends.

Changes to this week..

Wednesday
The National Wildlife Trust’ will be in on Wednesday to lead some workshops in our school grounds and the woods. It is a non-uniform day but please be aware that all activities will be outdoors so with the weather not being great at the moment, please can your child wear waterproof / warm clothing and wellies! Fingers cross it will be sunny! School lunch will be as normal.

Thursday
On Thursday, we will be having a Pirate Day to celebrate our end of topic theme ‘It’s a Pirate’s Life…’. The children can come dressed as pirates, princesses, explorers, or anything they feel comfortable with. We understand some children don’t like dressing up so whatever makes the day special for them. We will have a fun day to celebrate the end of this half term.

Please can you send in an additional snack (e.g a packet of crisps or a cake bar) for the children to enjoy in the afternoon, we will also provide biscuits but we will carefully hand them out.

We would also be grateful for kitchen roll tubes if you have them so the children can create their own telescopes! These will be isolated in a cupboard in class.

Friday
Due to our Trip being on Wednesday this week we will do PE on Friday, so please send children in their PE kits. Also a reminder to bring Library books on Friday so the children can have a new book over half term.

Thank you for your support!
Many thanks, Miss Oliver

Thursday 20th May

We have had a lovely day today! The children have done some fantastic 3D shape work in Maths, and we have shared some lovely stories.

This morning we had our class photo, everyone looked so smart and happy, can’t wait to see it!

Please remember that it is our library trolley day tomorrow. So if your child would like to change their book, please bring it back to school tomorrow.

Enjoy the photos from todays learning 🙂

May Procession

Hello, just a quick reminder that the children can bring in a flower tomorrow for the May procession which will be celebrated in the afternoon.

Secondly, please can the children return their library book on Friday so they can take a new one home.

Mnay thanks,

Miss Oliver

Rugger Eds

The reception children have been invited to take part in Ruggers Eds, a rugby after school sports club on Tuesdays. I will support the children getting changed in the classroom at the end of the day and the sports coaches collect them from the classroom and walk them straight to the field/sports hall. The children have so much fun and it is also a fantastic opportunity to spend some time with the other reception children and build relationships ready for transitioning into their new classes next year. Bookings can be made over parent pay.

Many thanks, Miss Oliver

Fun Day Friday!

Today the children have been learning all about algorithms. The children used the beebots to create their own algorithm, and help the beebot make its way to the end of the map.

Tonight the children have brought home another clue. This time we’re travelling to Australia!

Just as a reminder, can the children please not bring any nuts into school as we are a nut free school. Thank you.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend 🙂
