Wanted- cardboard tubes

As part of our topic work in Class one, we will be requiring sturdy cardboard tubes for example; Pringle tubes or tin foil tubes. I would be extremely grateful if parents could save any they may have and bring them into school after the Easter break.

Many thanks,

Nicky Fox

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.

Class 2 Trip

On Thursday, Class 2 went to Birmingham for the day. We visited the Birmingham Buddhist ‘Peace Pagoda’ in the morning. Our guide, Ellen, talked to the children about the religion of Buddhism and showed us all the different areas of the beautiful shrine. She also taught us how to meditate, which the children did with great focus. After lunch in the Buddhist Community Hall, we took a short coach ride to Thinktank. Here, we took part in a Lego Building workshop, in which the children were given building challenges, in teams, before having a go at creating the building designs that they had drawn at school. They have designed a new building for London after exploring how London was rebuilt after ‘The Great Fire of London’. We then had some time to have a look around the museum and Science garden. We had a wonderful day and the children were fantastic. Well done Class 2!

    

 

 

 

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.
