Hello Class R

I hope that you had a lovely weekend.

I hope that you enjoyed your learning last week. I will continue to put the daily learning on the blog this week just in case we have a hiccup with Google Classroom!

I have attached a weekly plan and some more activities in case you get bored! I will also attach a list of useful TV and website links that you may find helpful.

www.bbc.co.uk have daily lessons from 9:00am – 12:00pm  (including links to CBeebies and BBC Bitsize).

I have signed you up to Oxford Owl E-book library to help with your reading at home. There are banded books on here that link with the coloured band that you read at school as well as some story telling videos. There are over 500 books, so it would be fantastic if you could use these to help you read everyday.                                                                                                                                    

Here are your log in details:

 I have attached a letter from Oxford Owl that explains a bit more.

Resources that you need for this week include:                                                                          

your purple book (to do all of your work in), pencil, card or cardboard boxes (to make a dice and a bed for a teddy), different size containers for water play, porridge (optional), plain flour and salt to make salt dough.

I look forward to seeing you all on Google Meet (hopefully)!

Reception

We had a fantastic end to the term, involving lots of fun. We decorated some yummy Christmas biscuits and enjoyed our Christmas party. The children were brilliant with their singing in the live carol service and we absolutely loved seeing Father Christmas, who kindly came to school to say Happy Christmas to the children and to leave them with a class christmas present.

Can I say on behalf of the team a really big and heartfelt THANK YOU for our wonderful Christmas cards and the fantastic Christmas video that the children made. I can honestly say that a few tears were shed! A fantastic idea.

I hope that you all had and are having a lovely Christmas and that all of you are healthy and safe.

Enjoying our party games.
We were very excited to see Father Christmas.
So was Mrs Homan!

Class 1

*Learner of the Week W/C 14.12.20*

Our Learner of the Week this week was awarded to Lily for being a kind and helpful member of Class One and always looking out for other children. Well done Lily!

We have had a very exciting last week before the Christmas holidays.

On Tuesday, during our carol service, we sang our Christmas song- ‘Have a Holly Jolly Christmas’. You were amazing! Everyone joined in with the actions and sang beautifully – I am SO proud of each and every one of you. Well done! We also enjoyed watching the other classes sing their songs and listening to what the Year 6 readers said about the Christmas story.

On Wednesday, we had lots of fun at our Christmas party – we decorated biscuits with icing and Christmas sprinkles and really enjoyed sitting together to eat them! They looked delicious.

We also played lots of fun party games – some of our favourites were pass the parcel, musical statues, musical bumps and Kim’s Game. We also showed off our best dancing moves and really impressed the adults!

Our friend, Eric the Elf, was very cheeky again this week – we couldn’t believe some of things that he got up to over night! On one day, he even tried to bring us back a snowman but our classroom was a bit too warm and it melted!

On Thursday, we had a special surprise visit from Father Christmas! He even gave us some class presents! We were SO excited to see him and were so grateful for the presents we received. We can’t wait to play with our new toys!

I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone in Class One for such a brilliant first term. Thank you so much for all your lovely Christmas cards and wishes – I love them! I hope you all have a ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’!

On behalf of all the Class One team, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope that you all have a lovely and safe time and I look forward to seeing you in the new year. Miss Etheridge
