Summer Term


Week 3

.

 

Friday 24th May

 

What a busy last week before half term! The children have been involved in:

  • Coding by creating a maze out of blocks and natural objects and having a go at writing instructions to tell their partner.
  • Finding ways of making 7 using a number of practical objects.
  • Continuing with Sports Day practice; practising all the different activities.  Please remember to send in your child’s PE kit if you haven’t returned it after the holidays.  We will be going outside more as the weather improves, so please could you make sure that your child has appropriate footwear in their bag.  If the weather is hot and sunny, we would appreciate it if you could apply sunscreen and provide your child with a water bottle, especially on our PE day, Wednesday.
  • Continuing to plant in the garden. We have been very busy and mindful not to forget watering the flowers especially in this warm weather.
  • The children’s My Time activities have involved them in comparing and ordering numbers by using number cards; making posters about how to look after our world and sorting natural and man-made materials. We have also continued to make our own playdough using a recipe. 

Sports Day is on Wednesday 12th June. Sports Day houses have been sent home. Please send your child in on the day with the appropriate colour t-shirt and school shorts.

After half term, Forest School will continue from the second week on Friday 14th June. Please come to school dressed in appropriate clothing such as a cool long sleeved top and trousers as we do work in long grassy areas.  Old shoes or wellies can be sent in, depending on weather conditions!

We have started to practise our class assembly.  All parts have now been sent home to practice.  Don’t forget to put the date in your diary - Tuesday 2nd July at 9.15a.m.

Just a reminder that Foundation Phase will be going to Bristol Zoo on Wednesday 5th June.  Please see ParentPay for payment information.  Thank you if you have already paid.

We are developing a woodwork station and a baking station for the children to use in Reception.  We would be grateful for any donations of wood offcuts, clout nails or bottle tops for the woodwork station.  We are making playdough in the baking station, at the moment, so any donations of salt or flour would be gratefully received.

Have a lovely half term!

Thank you for your continued support
