End of year fun!


Classes 1 and 2 joined together for an end of term party. Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time, luckily the weather stayed dry so we could go outside. It was a great way to end the school year! Take a look at some of the photos below.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a great summer holiday! Stay safe! See you all in September.

Cookery in Class 1

Children in Class 1 have used ingredients from our outdoor area to make rhubarb crumble and a chive dip. They also enjoyed the tomatoes that have been growing outside. The rhubarb crumble was a hit with a lot of the children. It was great to see so many of the children trying food that they hadn’t tried before!

Dudley Zoo trip

Class one had a brilliant time at Dudley Zoo today!

The children really enjoyed looking at all the animals and identifying which animal group they came from. They were also great at  identifying whether they were carnivores, omnivores or herbivores.

The children were very well behaved and were good ambassadors for the school. Well done everyone!

 

Plastic Lids – Recycling Project

Plastic pollution is becoming an increasing problem around the world. To help raise the awareness of this, the School Council have planned a recycling project and need as many used plastic lids.

These lids can be any shape, size or colour, but they must be plastic and do need to be clean – plastic milk bottle lids are ideal! If you have any used plastic lids, children can bring them into to school and put them in the green bin (see image below) found in Class 4’s cloakroom.

Forest School

Many of you will be aware that there is no forest school tomorrow for Class 1.  Mrs Rollings has asked me to inform you that it will be the Year 1’s  turn to do forest school after the Easter break.

Have a lovely Easter!

Mr Shotton’s Motor Car

Class 1 are reading the story ‘Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car.’ As a special treat Mr Shotton came to school to show us his special motor car. The children enjoyed the opportunity to have a look Mr Shotton’s car. Mr Shotton told them lots of interesting facts about his Morgan motor car. We had some very interesting discussions about the similarities and differences between old and modern cars.

We must say a big thank you to Mr Shotton for coming to school in his car despite the weather!

Candle craft.

As our class reward for filling the marble jar, Nicola Clarke kindly offered to come into school and help the children create their own candles. Each child made an Easter egg design to go on the front of a candle. Nicola then took the designs home and put them onto a candle for everyone to take home. The children were so excited to see the candles with their designs on.

We must say a big thank you to Nicola Clarke for giving up her free time and for her help and expertise.

Please note, there is an option to order more candles for family members to give as an Easter gift. Any proceeds will be donated to Class 1.

Many thanks.

A big thank you from Class 1.

Thank you to everyone who contributed towards the 5p challenge! We had a fantastic response and raised an amazing £440. The money raised will go towards a canopy for the outdoor area of Class 1. Class 2 managed to raise the most money, a fantastic £151.88 and won the film night.

The money raised will go towards a canopy for the outdoor area of Class 1 which will enable the children to be outside in all weathers.

We must say a big thank you Mrs Laver and Mrs Clarke for their help in organising this event and for the donations of cakes, popcorn and squash! Mrs Harman also deserves a special mention for counting all the money! Thanks once again!

Class 1 trip to RAF Cosford.

Class 1 had a great time at RAF Cosford today. They were all so well behaved and should be very proud of how they conducted themselves. They were a credit to the school!

Please take the time to look at the photos below and ask your child to tell you all about the trip.

Many thanks,

Mrs Fox.

 

5p challenge

Class 1 have really enjoyed sorting the coins that have come into school as part of the 5p challenge. The response has been brilliant so far! If you haven’t brought any loose change into school, there is still time. The winning class will have the opportunity to attend a film night on Thursday 21st March from 3:15 pm onwards. Proceeds are to go towards the development of Class 1’s outdoor area. Thank you for your support.

Outside area development.

During the coming months, we are planning to develop the outside area of Class 1. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, we have no available funds to finance the development. My first plan is to paint the wooden equipment we already have in the outside area. In order to do so, we will require exterior paint. If anyone has any spare exterior paint we would be extremely grateful for any donations.

Many thanks

Home-link

Please accept my apologies but there will be no home-link book for reception children, this week. Next week our literacy work will be based on our class book ‘The Journey.’ In preparation for this, ask your child to draw a picture/ make a model of a place they would like to go (real or imaginary.) Can they label the things in their picture?

Many thank,

Nichola Fox.

Help Your Child Read Presentation

Following our Curriculum Committee Meeting last night, where we reviewed progress on the School’s Development Plan, we thought it would be helpful to share the presentation given to parents to help offer strategies and guidance with helping your child read.  This includes information on the teaching and pronunciation of phonics, as well as ideas to help engage children with the content of the text including questioning and prompts for working out tricky words.

Class 1 information

 

Welcome back! We hope you all had a great Christmas! We are really looking forward to building upon the successes of last term.

Our topic for this term is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Please take a look a on the Class 1 information page to find about what we shall be doing in Class 1 this term.  Reception parents will still get a home-link book to inform them what their children have been learning in school each week. Children’s work in their home-link book will be shared with the class on a Tuesday.

With regards to homework, all pupils are expected to read daily. Please continue to write comments in the blue reading record book so we have a record that your child has read at home.

Children in Year 1 will be receiving a spellings list to learn in preparation for a test every Friday. There are also spelling lists on spelling shed for reception children to practice, these will not be tested ( see note in book bags.) Year 1 children will also be expected to learn their 2,5 and 10 times tables for quick recall.

Many thanks
