Summer term 1 newsletter

Mrs Pawson and Miss Oates - 02 May 2019


​Welcome back after such an exciting Easter holiday. We have really enjoyed hearing about everyone’s great adventures. We have heard news of trips to Liverpool, the Lake District, skateboarding chickens, chocolate (!) and most exciting of all lots of playing- the magic of childhood!
We hope you all had a great time.

This term is a very short but busy term. We have already had a busy week, with the start of term service, an afternoon of land art and lots of great learning adventures! We have practised our phonics, been on a train for our Write Dance, learnt some new blends, written stories, wondered about a lot of things, been measured by the school nurse, investigated counting with Maisy the mouse and helping her to solve some number problems... 

We have many more adventures to come, the children are curious about the changes in the outdoor environment so we will be planning lots of ideas to inspire their curiosity. We already have so many ideas and look forward to the journey our learning will take.

We will be exploring number and the patterns we can investigate as we double, halve, think about more than and less than, share... 

We will be using all of our ideas and phonetic knowledge to write lists, captions, signs, instructions, stories, cards... we will be practising our fluency in reading which is very important. We know a lot of words already and can segment (sound out) and blend so many more. We need to build our confidence and speed so that we can read and enjoy our reading all of the time. We really appreciate your help with this. Reading the same book several times (!) over an extended period will really help with this as we become confident with it. This can be tricky as adults as we tend to want to read new and different things, try to think of it as returning to a classic or an old favourite!

We will be spending lots of time outside, as ever. We are really lucky to have a class set of puddlesuits to keep us all dry. Can we politely ask that every child has a pair of welly boots in school that fit our growing feet! We are hoping for sunny warm weather so children will need a sun hat but also a coat for cooler times. We have had a huge clean of the outdoor play surface, it is made of ‘wet pore’ which holds water rather than drains it. It can be quite slippery especially on the sloped area. This term we are hoping for dryer weather and would like the children to explore taking risks and challenging themselves physically by sliding, balancing and moving carefully. We have a new junk shop for our loose parts, we have to manage moving them safely down steps and working as a team. Gross motor movements and physical play really enhance our charcteristcs of effective learning as well as helping us in all areas of our development. We look forward to lots of adventures.

If you haven’t yet had a  time to speak to us about your child’s EExAT learning journey we are trying to arrange another meeting which suits everyone. We will talk to people individually, or please pop and see us. Thank you to everyone who uploaded some of their own photos and comments over the holidays. 

We have some great adventures planned in the coming weeks so watch this space. 

Urban strides- we are all very excited to be working with Urban Stride a street dance company next Friday (10th May). This is being funded by money gained via a grant from HBC TDY community projects fund. They will be in school all day working with small groups, thinking about challenges, journeys and what these mean to us then exploring these ideas in dance. We will be having lots of fun. We need to come in appropriate clothes for the day, leggings, joggers, T-shirt’s and a jumper, socks and comfortable footwear. We will be working in the hall, so layers would be advisable as it can get warm.

TDY artwork, yesterday afternoon we all worked as a school team in our dale groups to produce our bike inspired artwork. The large art will be on the field over the weekend, our smaller artwork which is forming two great ‘bike sculptures’ will be in the Methodist Chapel alongside work from Art Club. Thank you to our governors Mr Weld and Mrs Brassington who helped us get messy yesterday afternoon! 
We might get a mention over the weekend on Stray FM who are coming to talk to some children tomorrow about our work. We have also registered our art work and hope it will get spotted by the TV cameras!
