Happy 2017!

Welcome back to school.

We hope you enjoyed the Christmas holiday and the festive treats we sent home.  Did the reindeer food work?

Thankyou very much for your cards, gifts and kind wishes.  We were overwhelmed.

Reading

We have started guided reading sessions where your child will read in a group.  On his/her guided reading day we will change their home reading book and will continue to change books left in the blue bow in the morning.

Please read daily with your child, particularly if your child is in Year 1.

 

RE

Miss Gibson will teach RE in class 1A looking at different celebrations.

 

Topic- Seasonal change

We have observed and drawn bare trees using pastels.  We looked at ice after finding some outside.  We made ice and watched what it did in water.  We tried to answer the question, 'Why does ice float?'  We think it's either to do with weight or air bubbles...more to follow.

Children's interests

The children wanted to act out Rapunzel so we found a book, watched a you tube clip , dressed up in costumes and built a tower outside.  Then we acted the story and photographed it for writing about.

PE

Class 1A are taking PE with  a Link for Life PE coach this half term.
