Wow! What a fantastic session we all had with the lovely author and illustrator Jessica Spanyol. Each child was able to create their own character during the session using collage pieces, pens, pencils and eyes! They were all amazing!!!
The children were so inspired by Jessica, that as a result, they wrote some incredible stories using their character as a stimulus! Please feel free to pop into the classroom after school to see them!
Well done and thank you Jessica!
Our theme this half term will be the farm and animals. The children will be taking part in a variety of learning opportunities based this theme. Please look out for the Farm Fact books that are going home with the children. Please support them to find their own fact about a farm animal using the internet or non-fiction books.
We have postponed dressing up day for World Book Day until Thursday 22nd March, due to the snow day closures. We cannot wait to see which traditional tale characters the children dress up as!
If you have not yet sent a wow moment in for your child please try to do so by the end of March.
Our P.E days in 2017 - 2018 are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that all earrings are removed otherwise your child will unfortunately not be able to join in with the rest of their class.
Birthday assembly will be every Wednesday at 2.45pm. Parents are encouraged to attend to watch their child blow out the candles and receive a special birthday sticker from Mrs Ireland. Birthday weeks start on the Sunday and end the following Saturday, so please join us in celebrating on the Wednesday of your child's birthday week. Sorry but if your child is absent from their assembly because you have taken them on holiday, they will miss their birthday assembly at school and this will not be repeated on their return.
Please remember to complete and return school dinner menus for the following week. Food has to be ordered in advance and meals are cooked according to that order. Please do not expect a meal if you have not ordered it in advance.
Please do not send your child with a packed lunch if you have ordered a meal as that meal will be wasted. We cannot change the order mid-week. If you wish to change your child's order please speak to office staff and they will change it for the following week.
However if staff see that a child is not eating anything at all they may well suggest they bring their own lunch until they are happy to eat a school hot meal.
You will be invited to come into school to see how phonics is taught. Do also find 'Mr Thorne' on Youtube where there is information about how to pronounce the phonemes and digraphs.
Children that read each night to practise the skills they have been taught are the children who are most confident in school.
