What a busy week we have had! Our learning this week has centered around Goldilocks and the Three Bears and we have been busy thinking about the structure of the story and drawing our own fantastic story maps. We have tried to make a bed the right size for teddy and have tasted porridge – there were some delighted children who discovered that they enjoyed the taste!

A highlight of the week was walking down to the Quay to meet the firemen with their fire engine. The children loved looking at all the equipment, sitting in the fire engine and watching the hose squirt water! Back in the classroom we learned some rhymes and songs to help us to keep safe.

We also had Book Day and the children looked fabulous. Thank you.

Next week we are learning all about Jack and the Beanstalk.

I hope that you all had a lovely Half Term.

This term our learning is entitled ‘Once Upon A Time’. This is a literacy based project and the children have chosen different stories that they would like to learn about. An overview of the half term is attached.

This week we have been learning all about Little Red Riding Hood. We have made some fantastic story maps, acted out the story and have been writing character descriptions. Next week our learning will be based around Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

I would like to remind you that our Easter Service is to be held on Friday, 5th April. Parents are warmly invited to school after our church service, where the children from classes R, 1 and 2 come and show off the magnificent Easter Bonnets that they have made at home. If you are a new parent, you may like to start preparations soon!

Thank you to all of you that complete the Maths challenges – new ones for this half term are attached. Thank you also for hearing your children read – it makes a real difference. Our first reading certificate for 100 nights reading has now been given out in Worship!

We have had some very exciting weeks in Class R. Last week we celebrated Chinese New Year with dancing, making lanterns, learning all about the Great Race and playing in our Chinese restaurant. The children also performed at the Talk4Writing talk for parents and were brilliant.

I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU INTO THE CLASSROOM THIS FRIDAY, 15TH FEBRUARY TO SEE ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL WORK IN THE CLASSROOM. WE WILL ALSO PERFORM OUR TALK4WRITING STORY AGAIN.

We had fun playing in the snow!
