Our Weekly School News – Sharing our Learning with the School Community.
Each week we try our very best to either upload a weekly class summary on a Friday or share class Twitter or Facebook posts during the week.
There are links below to the Social Media platforms that some of our classes have chosen to try out this session,
Please have a read and a chat together about what we have been up to this week.
We have had a busy couple of weeks and have settled well into our new routines. The children were all delighted to be able to work and play with their friends and classmates again. We have started to discuss the school rules that help us all stay safe. In class our topic for the term will be Good to be Me where we talk about our emotions and how we feel and there are group challenges to work on as a team. In Maths we have worked on pattern and shape and we have started mental maths activities. The children have done some lovely art work with cut out shapes inspired by Henri Matisse.
Wear gym kit on Mondays and Tuesdays and this stays on all day.
We will be going to the Nature Garden on a Friday afternoon so please wear suitable clothing and wellies. We aim to get outside in all but the most extreme weathers!

This week during our Emotions Works topic we have been sharing our knowledge of words to describe emotion. We talked about our ‘feel better strategies’ such as going for a walk or listening to music. We can use these strategies if we are feeling an uncomfortable emotion.
In maths we have been focusing on number word sequences. We have been practicing our forward and backward number word sequences using games.
We have been working on our handwriting, identifying our ascenders and descenders letters. We have been checking our writing to make sure our letters are the correct height and that they are sitting on the line.
On the computer we have been logging on and accessing accelerated reader and Sumdog.
Although the weather has been rather rainy, we enjoyed two playground games sessions taking part in team races and a skipping challenge. We have been getting lots of fresh air each day during our daily mile. We built dinosaur homes in the nature garden, using different natural materials. We even found a baby frog while we were there!
Nature garden on Monday afternoon.
P.E outside every Wednesday and Thursday.
