Thanks to Mrs. Moncorger the children in years 1 and 2 had a fabulous time celebrating Bastille Day. This is what the children said…
Sihanua; “I enjoyed painting the Eiffel Tower.”
Joe; “The food was really nice. I really liked the croissants.”
Tilly; “We had to order our food in French!”
“Je voudrais un pain au chocolat!”
Aki; “We played Boules, it was fun.”
Thank you to all the grown ups who helped to organise the day. It has really inspired the children to learn about France and to learn to speak French.
We are nearly there! 4 school days to go. The children are very excited about their Summer holiday but are still working hard. Today we are creating a Beat Box version of the Grand Old Duke of York in time for a whole school challenge tomorrow to end our Arts Week!
Mrs. Allen and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your support throughout Year 1. We have had so much fun this year and will really miss the children. I am lucky enough to be moving to Year 2 with the children and am looking forward to seeing them in September and hearing all about their long, well deserved, holiday.
Look out for a special Summer holiday learning adventure that will be coming home on Monday. We would like the children to keep a scrap book / diary of their time away from school. Please also continue to read regularly (don’t forget the Waterlooville library challenge and Bug Club). Please also continue to practise number facts such as bonds, halves and doubles, odd and even, tens and units (how many tens in the number 35? How many units?). Count in different multiples – 2s, 5s, 10s and play the games on Abacus. It really does make a difference if you continue to practise these skills. It can all be done in a fun way and we most importantly want your children to have a fun filled holiday with time spent with their families.
All the best, see you in September!
