Weekly Update – 11.05.2018

We have all really enjoyed these past four days in school especially as the weather has been so wonderful!

This week we have been making the hamster cages that we designed last week, thank you very much for the ‘junk modelling’ resources you have brought in – but we really don’t need anymore!

Both Classes have made a vets in their role play area and it lovely to see how caring the children have been towards the ‘animals’. We are planning to visit ‘Pets at Home’ next week and will be doing a treasure hunt trying to find different objects are in the store by reading the clues. We will also be making our own ‘lift the flap’ books.

Next week we are also going to be looking ahead to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markel, the children will be designing them a cake, making bunting and finding out about our Royal Family.

Your child will be bringing home a set of sheets to help them practise their letter formation. Please encourage them to have a go, especially those letters that are in their names. You don’t need to return them to school but it would be lovely to see the completed ones. We would be grateful if you could return the clips.

Finally, just a reminder we are now doing PE on Mondays, your child will need shorts, a top and trainers. We often have the opportunity to do additional PE sessions throughout the week so we prefer the PE kits to stay in school all week. Thank you.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend.
