Thank you:)

Thank you all for your generous gifts and good wishes.

In the chaos of receiving a beautiful card from the children and ensuring they all had their welly boots, we forgot to give them their leaving gifts 😦 I have therefore passed them onto Mrs Butler and Miss Colette for them to hand out in the Autumn Term.

Have a relaxing and enjoyable Summer.

Thank you again,

Mrs Taylor and Mrs Bunce xx

Reading Books

Today will be the last reading book change of the year. Books will be collected in next week as part of the stock take and transition process.

Please keep reading and sharing books over the holidays – visit the library, the charity shop or write your own books. I am sure your new teachers would love to hear all about it in September.

Our Learning – wk beg 17/7/17

Our final week as Squirrels – where has the year gone?

This week we are summing up our learning journals and comparing ourselves to when we started.

We will get to watch the Year5/6 production which looks exciting.

On Wednesday we are having a science day – lots of experiments and talk about science.

On Monday afternoon school is open to the parents from 2pm. This is a chance to have a final look at the children’s journals before they are passed onto their next teachers, before they will go home to you in the Autumn Term. It is also a chance for the children to take home their clay pots, Ramadan jars and salt dough owls. You will also be able to have a look in their new classroom and have a chat with their new teachers and support staff. Once you have looked round you are welcome to take your child home, you do not have to stay until 3:15pm. Please sign out in the office.

Celebrating the week

We have been bird crazy this week in Reception. It was a fabulous morning on Monday watching and holding the owls and eagle. It has inspired us to write about the experience make salt dough birds with feathers and an array of nests outside. Our small world area has also transformed into the story “Owl Babies”.

On Wednesday we spent a fun time playing some parachute games outside – some excellent listening and cooperation from everyone – well done:)

We have also been thinking about keeping safe inside and outside of school. In particular, we thought about safe places to play and discussed the dangers of railway lines, roads and electricity pylons.
