Nativity Costumes

If your child has been asked to provided a costume for the nativity performance, please can they bring it into school by Friday 8th December.

If you have it ready before that date, please feel free to send them in from Monday. Please ensure that they are in a plastic bag, which is clearly labelled.

We appreciate parents providing costumes. For the past few years we have managed to sort out a costume for all the children but some of them are now looking very well-worn.

Many thanks,

Mrs Morris & Mrs Fox

Nativity – Lines/Costumes

Our nativity, this year, is called ‘A King is Born’.

All the children in Fireflies and Grasshoppers have been given their parts.

If your child has brought home lines please could you help them to learn them, as soon as possible.

We have lots of costumes in school for children to use, but we will let you know if your child needs additional items or a costume that we haven’t already got.

Many thanks,

Mrs Morris & Mrs Fox

Self-Portraits

In art, Fireflies have been learning the skills to create a self-portrait. They have used and developed their observational skills and explored mixing colours to create skin and lip tone.

They have also enjoyed looking at self-portraits by Van Gogh, Picasso and Kahlo. They have discussed the similarities and differences between the artist’s self-portraits and compared the portraits to their own artwork.

The work is up on display and the children are very proud of their achievements.

Beach Party Fun

Fireflies and Grasshoppers had a fun filled beach party this morning. The children were fantastic and played brilliantly with one another. There was so much collaboration, support and sharing. It was a real pleasure to watch. Then this afternoon we had our special treat…ice cream! It was certainly the right sort of weather for an ice cream.

Beach Party Reminder!

Monday 18th July – Beach Party for Fireflies & Grasshoppers

Due to the hot forecast we have moved our beach party to the morning as it will be a little cooler.

* Come to school in a summer outfit – shorts/t-shirt/dress (No flip flops please)

* Please send your child to school with sun cream applied, a water bottle and a sunhat/cap.

* Don’t forget your £3 for an ice cream, in the afternoon.

Many thanks,

Mrs Morris & Mrs Fox

Postcards

Before we broke up for half term, Fireflies had been learning how to write a postcard about  a seaside holiday,

To really bring their learning to life, the children were asked to send a postcard to the class, during the half term break.

The children really enjoyed sharing their postcards. They were all so excited to receive them! It sounds like they all had a lovely time.
