We enjoyed a brilliant trip to the Sea Life Centre on Wednesday. The children enjoyed looking at all of the different sea creatures and their behaviour was excellent.  Some fantastic writing resulted from this.

We will be focussing on the stories of the Rainbow Fish for the next two weeks. They are lovely books with a good moral story to each of them.

Advance warning of two dates:  On Wednesday, 12th July we will be having a Pirate Day, when the children are invited to dress as pirates for the day. On Friday, 14th July, you are invited to our Class R assembly in the school hall at 2:00 and afterwards to come back to the classroom.

 

I hope  that you all had a fantastic weekend enjoying the sunshine. We started our new topic Commotion in the Ocean last week. There was some fantastic role play and storytelling around the story of The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark. We are also very lucky this Half Term to have gymnastics twice a week taken by a qualified gymnastics teacher.  This week we have our school trip, which is very exciting. Our learning will focus around sea life and sea creatures and also exploring floating and sinking.

I can’t believe that this Half Term has gone by so quickly! We had a lovely last week. On Monday we went to Druitt Gardens on a Minibeast Hunt, which was very exciting. We found lots of minibeasts in different habitats and the children were complimented on their good behaviour. Thank you if you came to watch our photo powerpoint on Friday , which showed what we have been doing this Half Term – it was lovely for the children to share with you.

After Half Term is Arts Week – prepare to get messy!!   

I hope you all have a lovely Half Term.

Attached is an overview of this Half Term’s topic – Commotion in the Ocean! Also attached are the  new maths challenges.

How you can help your child this week:  practise letter and number formation.

Congratulations to our Learners of the Week.  We looked at paintings of Ascension and the first pupil could give some really thoughtful ideas about what the paintings showed. The second pupil is always ready to learn, always quietly working, is very helpful and very kind to others. Thank you to both Learners of the Week.
