Let half term commence

Dear All,

We have had a busy but exciting final week to Spring 1. The children have performed their second liturgy of the school year to parents and carers. The theme for this was revelations and the story of feeding the five thousand. The children made lovely loaves and fish props with Mrs Pearson to help bring the story alive. Thank you to all the parents who came to watch and for getting involved too!

Next, the children got to watch as the crane bought in our new building. The children found this very exciting and some could even tells us what they builders were doing and why! They were all very keen to see the finished result and what the building will have inside it, but they will have to wait another 4 weeks before this happens!

Finally we had our poetry competition. Many thanks to those who supported their children at home with practising and learning their poems. It was really brilliant to see the children perform and it was evident of all the hard work you put in. It was a tough decision, but the 4 children have been chosen to go into the final. The final will take place on Friday 8th March where the children will be performing in front of the school. Costumes and actions are encouraged!

Thanks again for your support during Spring 1, we ask you to enjoy your week off. Allow time for family, rest and talking, but please also continue to work with your child on maths, phonics sounds and reading. It really makes a difference to their learning!

We hope you have a lovely half term,

The Early Years Team

Last week

Last week saw starfish class visit pizza express to make their own margarita pizza. They had a fabulous time being mini chefs for the morning!

The two year R class teachers spent 2 days on courses, learning lots of new things to implement into the school day. We are looking forward to trying them out soon.

In RE last week we looked at other faiths. Both classes looked at Sikhism and what their faith was all about. They learnt about their place of worship and their special book. They then turned their classroom into a Gurdwara, taking off their shoes and making sure that the boys and girls sat on different sides.

Half term: 18th-22nd February

Fun in the snow!

Last week saw our first snow fall of the year, and so we took the children out to play with it! We had lots of children making snowmen, snow angels and snow animals. We also had our ‘safety officers’ who were sweeping the snow so others had a clear path so they did not slip up! The children had a lovely morning in the snow and then many decided to write about their snow adventures! The year R team were very impressed with the sounds and HFW that the children are using in their writing.

It was an eventful for week for Seahorse, because as well as the snow they also had their school trip to pizza express where they got to make their very own cheese and tomato pizza! They then bought it back to school and had a pizza picnic!

  • Year R have their liturgy on Tuesday 12th February
