Update: Due to making the most of the weather we havent had chance to do the Year 1 spelling test today (List 1A) so it will now take place on Monday.
Don’t forget to book your place on the ‘Help Your Child Read Workshop’ on 25th September! This is the feedback from a parent who attended last year’s session:
” I just wanted to do a quick email to say that I thought the session that you kindly put together the other week, on parents to help their children read, was extremely useful.
Initially I was a bit sceptical as my view was very much that I already know how to help my son read and what value it would add. I was totally wrong and the session gave me a really good understanding on how the children are taught phonics in school and the importance of using the same methods at home.
The importance of making your child break down and blend words together, and not just telling them, which I was doing.
From someone who initially had the view ‘I already know how to read to my son’ , I learnt so much and truly feel that both my son and I have benefitted”
Please note that there will not be Forest School for Year 1 or Year 2 this week.
Don’t forget your Forest School clothes!
All Year 1 and Year 2 children will need them tomorrow.
Forest School starts this week for Year 1 and Year 2 pupils. All Year 1s, from both Class 1 and 2, will participate in Forest School together this year. Year 1 pupils may come to school in their Forest School Kit and bring their uniform to change into after the session.
Class 1 have enjoyed working together to learn about 2D shapes, and now know that a triangle has 3 vertices! There was also lots of sorting taking place and kind sharing!
A lovely buddy reading session between Class 1 and 4…the first of the year!
Please note that there will not be any Forest School sessions this Friday. New group information will be sent out next week.
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.
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!
We have had a busy afternoon exploring capacity using water, and finding containers that are more or less than a litre in capacity.
Class 1 have been learning the African chant Kye, Kye Kule. It is a call and response song which is sung in schools in Africa. It teaches children parts of the body.
Please watch the clip below to see the children performing the song.
Class 1 were joined by Pre-School this afternoon as part of their transition. There was lots of sharing, creativity and fun!
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!
Please note that reception will have their last forest school session this Friday due to Mrs Rollings’ absence on the last day of half term. Year 1’s will start their sessions on the 14th June.
Class 1 are enjoying investigating different ways to sort a range of classroom equipment items! Lots of variation!
Please note that new Phase 4 lists have been published on spelling shed for children to practise over the half-term should they wish to do so.
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.
We hope you all had a lovely Easter break!
This term our topic is African Wilderness, please see the link on Class 1’s information page to discover what we will be learning about this term.
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!
