Newsletter – 23 January
Message from the Headteacher,
It was a lovely surprise to receive this certificate this morning to celebrate our impressive school attendance data. Well done, everybody!
Learning highlights this term:
- Owls Class have been reading The Gingerbread Man. They have worked hard to design traps to catch him and had lots of fun making and decorating gingerbread. The have also been learning about the steps to number 5.
- Parrots Class have been learning to write thank you letters on behalf of Puffin Peter and have produced some fantastic mixed medium drawing of feathers.
- Eagles Class have been learning how to use a range of conjunctions and have also been working on letter writing. In RE they have been learning some phrases which are important in the Hindu faith.
- Penguin Class have been learning about area, including how to calculate the area of a triangle. They have also started to learn about the topic of Crime and Punishment and have picked up examples of this in the mediaeval period from the class text – Outlaw.
On Friday next week we will be launching our World Culture Projects. Each class will be exploring a different country over the next few weeks. Each class will share the country they are learning about in next week’s celebration assembly. They will then develop their understanding of that country ready to share again in celebration assembly on Friday 24th February. Following the assembly, parents will be invited into each class to find out more.
Have a lovely weekend.
On behalf of as all at school we would like to say a massive thank you to Exubia (located on the ourskirts of the village) for the extremely generous donations of lots of magnificant plants. They have brightened the school and made our classrooms a nicer place to be.
We would also like to thank all the parents who have alreay given their time so freely this term to support the school. Some examples include: fixing playground equipment and unblocking the guttering, contriubuting to the PTA, being on the governing board and volunteering in school. We are very lucky to have such a supportive community.
