We have taken part in lots of exciting activities this term.
In our outdoor learning we lay very still to listen to the sounds in Littlewood. We also had great fun building our own rainforest shelters.
We had a visit from an author who told us some fantastic stories. Our favourite was “The Scary Solar system”.
We learnt about lots of different countries and enjoyed craft activities related to each country. The week finished with some Chinese dancing.
We are really enjoying our Big Writing which encourages us to use WOW words (ambitious, interesting words) to make our writing more exciting. These are some of the fantastic ideas that we have had when we wrote a story about a flying turtle…………
“Meanwhile the amazing turtle noticed something in the distance coming closer and closer… Suddenly a furious killer whale shot up like a firework” (Ryley)
“They glided together in the air, super-whizzing fast. They banged into a tree and fell into a tropical jungle with miraculous animals.” (Archie)
We have also studied the trees in Littlewood and used this as an inspiration for our poetry writing.
“This is the tree that dances in the breeze and twirls in different directions” (Isla)
We have enjoyed our rainforest topic, especially have playing in our role play corner and making our own rainforest shelters outside.
Other special things that have happened this term are World Book Day, a visit from Danny Lawrence and Science week.
Can you guess which characters we dressed up as?
The fitness circuit was exhausting!
Ryley’s group made the slimiest slime!
There will be an opportunity for you to see your child’s teacher to review progress since November. You are welcome to arrive a little earlier to view your child’s work which will be available outside the classroom before the interview. Each interview will last a maximum of 10 minutes but there will be no supervision facilities for other children so you are requested to make suitable alternative childcare arrangements whilst you attend.
Separated parents are encouraged to attend the interview together. However, where this is not possible, parents should agree to attend alternate terms’ interviews, ie one to attend in the Autumn Term and the other in the Spring Term.
Please note that as a change to previous years’ arrangements, please sign a slot on the timetable displayed on your child’s classroom noticeboard by FRIDAY 6th MARCH to make an appointment. For those parents/carers who do not drop off/collect their child, please advise another parent/carer to sign in your place.
A BIG THANK YOU to all who support our charity, Macmillan Cancer Support over the Christmas Performances. We raised a truly magnificent £657.79. Thank you for your continued support with our children in school, especially in the costume creations, learning of lines/songs and attending as great audience members.
