A big thank you to Mrs Smith, for noticing in our letter regarding PE uniform and jewellery, that we had erroneously copied and pasted information that is now out of date – and that the PE T-shirt is green and not white! I hope that this hasn’t caused too much confusion, it is a rather busy time of year!
Wow – what amazing effort has gone in to decorating the Christmas Jam Jars for our Xmas Fair on Sunday at Cleobury North Village Hall between 9am and 1pm. These are beautiful, festive and make you smile! What’s even better is they are full of sweets! There are 3 winning jars – ‘Most Original’, ‘Most Festive’ and ‘Most Humorous’! Come along to Well Done Assembly tomorrow to find out who the winners are, and then come along to the Xmas Fair on Sunday and buy one of these stunning Christmas Jam Jars full of goodies!
Our first team of Brown Clee Buddies have been enjoying visiting the residents of Ditton Priors Care Home on Tuesday afternoons. This is a new initiative where a small team of Class 4 pupils spend sometime with the residents of the Care Home, reading stories, sharing some colouring-in, playing games and just enjoying a chat and getting to know each other. So far there have been lots of smiles, and informative, caring conversations!
Class 1 enjoyed going for a hunt to find 3D shapes this afternoon! We found lots of cubes, cuboids, cylinders and even cones! It was so exciting!
Our reception children had a great time at Forest School this morning, where they worked together to make bird feeders out of solids and liquids, as well as enjoying some free time where they created animal nests by digging homes and created some lovely role-play stories together.
They enjoyed sharing their activities in Circle Time, where they spoke articulately and listened attentively to each other’s recounts.
Don’t forget to come along to our ‘Help Your Child Read’ session this evening at 6pm in school! We will teach you a bit about phonics, as well as help with ideas of how to really encourage your child to ‘get into’ books! Plus show you some useful websites that can help.
Class 3 held a special Victorian Day today, where all the children and staff dressed up in Victorian clothing and carried out Victorian activities. Mrs Heath looked very strict and even had a cane! In the afternoon, they held a Victorian party, where they played games like pin the tail on the donkey and Wheres’s Moriarty?! They then enjoyed afternoon tea with Victoria Sponge Cake! A spiffing day!
Class 1 have been enjoying creating 3D shapes this afternoon. There was lots of of collaboration and excitement when we found lots of other shapes too, like squares and rectangles!
We have our new Culture Corner! This half term we are going to be finding out all about Krgyzstan! It looks a beautiful country!
Unfortunately we have had to reschedule the ‘Help Your Child Read’ workshop that was due to be held this Wednesday at 6pm. The new date for this session is now Wednesday 21st November at 6pm in school. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause, and hopefully you can still attend.
The presentation and any accompanying leaflets will also be made available on the school website.
A massive thank you to everyone from the School Council, as with your help they have managed to raise £153.05 towards creating an outdoors reading area for everyone!! A great achievement and the School Council were brilliant co-ordinators!
Look at the display of cakes that have been very generously donated for the School Council’s cake sale today! We will update you later as to how much they raise to go towards the outdoor reading area benches! Thank you!
All donations of cake will be very gratefully received, and children will have the opportunity to buy some cakes during the day, to bring home; so sending your child in with some coins would be appreciated.
If we have supplies left at the end of the day then they will be on offer for sale outside the school reception.
Class 1 enjoyed selecting and using a range of different media to create Cinderella’s Castle. There was lots of maths learning as well!
Due to the forecast of heavy rain this afternoon, we are holding our Harvest Festival in school instead of walking to church. It is at the same time of 2pm and everyone is welcome to come and join us!
Come and join us to celebrate the harvest this afternoon in church at 2pm. Thank you to all who have kindly donated food (dry, tinned, packeted) for the Bridgnorth Food Bank.
A huge well done to our netball team for being the overall winners of the East Shropshire Netball Tournament! We saw excellent teamwork and enthusiasm, perseverance and determination, and you have grown so much in terms of skills and confidence over the last few weeks! We look forwards to seeing you perform in the County Winter Games!
Class 1 enjoyed creating a range of 2D shapes using mini-marshmallows and cocktail sticks, or straws and blutak. There was lots of mathematical vocabulary and Archie managed to create a 10 sides shape with 10 vertices!
Following on from our learning about China and it’s culture in assemblies this week, Logan kindly brought in this amazing Dragon Dance costume from home.
Tomorrow children can wear one item of red clothing along with school uniform to support this excellent cause….let’s help Zac!
Class 1 have had a very special visitor this morning! Prince Charming arrived at school searching for Cinderella. I hope they can help him to find his Princess!
We have reminded children that any packaging waste from their packed lunch needs to be put into their packed lunch bags and return home, so that parents can be aware of what has or hasn’t been eaten. In consideration of this, can we kindly request that parents don’t send children with a carton of fruit juice for lunch, as these are often not finished and would leak badly into the packed lunch bags, plus we advocate that children are drinking water in school, and not sugary, fruit drinks. Thank you for your support.
Class 1 enjoyed a game of Classroom Rounders to practice forming shapes and patterns to help with future letter formation.
There is lots of reading for pleasure, comprehension and shared learning between Class 1 and Class 4 when they buddy read on a Friday afternoon. It is lovely to hear the older children offering support and help and being ‘mini teachers’, demonstrating kindness and encouragement.
Class 1 Reception children have enjoyed making tall and wide shapes in PE today.
We have recently reviewed our handwriting policy (available on the School Website in the Key Info/Policies section), in order to ensure greater consistency across school. As a result we are teaching a cursive style of handwriting, which for year 1 children, involves each letter starting on the line with a lead in and ending with a lead out. We are finding that this style helps the child’s writing to flow better and will make joining seamless.
Class 3 are enjoying carrying out their PE Challenges, involving chest/wall catches, a co-ordination jump and a slalom run. Each term they will repeat and see how their skills have improved! @EastShropSSP #fitness4fun #personalchallenge
