The weeks seem to be speeding up and just flying by! Your children are growing up and getting more mature by the day. We have had such a lovely, busy week. The Tardebigge Trek on Monday was just beautiful, watching the children and parents and carers walking through the field of rapeseed was just wonderful. I think everybody could appreciate what a beautiful place we live and work in. The children had some lovely things to say about their local environment. Thank you to all who could make the trek.
We have worked in a different way this week and had lots of ‘round robins’ with 5 different activity/work stations which the children have visited during a day or two. These have included multiplication work on doubling and word problems, work on capacity (including lots of practical work on full, half full and empty), painting and colour mixing, writing their news, research on lions and answering our questions about Africa.
Phonics: The children have continued to practice blending and sounding out real and alien words.
Re: We have recorded some answers to our big question what makes some places sacred? Thinking about where people go to worship, what they do there, and which objects and symbols are used in acts of worship. We thought about weddings and the importance of these. We discussed Billy and Bonnies wedding from Year R and the Royal Wedding that is taking place tomorrow.
Exciting News: We had a birth announcement from Billy and Bonny Bear that they have a healthy baby boy bear, named Bertie Bear. Bonny is very tired and they have asked for our help to arrange the christening for Bertie (as the class did such a good job arranging the wedding last year!) Please could you talk to your child about their christening or naming ceremony (if they had one) and send in any photos. We need to do a little research, so we know what we need to organise! (This is part of our RE work to answer the question What does it mean to belong to a faith community?)
Have a lovely weekend. Remember our trip to the Safari park on Monday, please remember school uniform, hats and sun cream if hot waterproofs if it looks like rain.
