World Book Day – Thursday 1st March
Parent Consultation Meetings – Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th March.
We have had a really exciting last week before half term. The children have really enjoyed videoing themselves acting out the story of Penguin. They have also worked really hard writing their own version of the ‘Penguin’ story.
We were busy making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and talked about the beginning of Lent. We also learned about Chinese New Year and explored noodles with chopsticks! The children were really excited to take part in our Dragon Dance around the playground!
In Maths we have been learning about height and weight – the children measured themselves and weighed different objects.
Our Readers of the week are Angelo and Layla Finnigan – well done for reading at home. We loved hearing about what all of the children want to be when they grow up – well done to Noah and Liam who won the ‘dip’ in the box for homework!
After the holidays our topic is going to be ‘Superheroes’! We will be finding out about different ‘super characters’. If you have any pictures or books your child would like to share please send them in.
For homework over the holiday we would love the children to find out about a superhero or better still to invent their own. We would like you to help your child make a cape for their own character (please make sure it is safe around the neck – a little elastic may help). There will be a small prize for the most imaginative cape so it is time to put on your thinking caps!
The children can keep their capes in school and use them in their play. We will be writing some stories about your child’s character and super powers!
We will also be reading the story of ‘Superworm’ by Julia Donaldson. To link with this we will be doing lots more work on measuring and comparing lengths, using the words longer, longest, shorter, shortest, taller and tallest.
Please can you ensure that all School Uniform has your child’s name written in. Some children have lost cardigans and jumpers recently. We would appreciate it if you could check at home and bring back any that may have been taken home by accident.
We wish you all a lovely half term break, thank you all as usual for your continued support and we look forward to seeing all your creative ‘Superhero’ capes!
