Weekly Update 16th September 2021

Miss Oates - 16 Sep 2021

Wow, what a busy start we have got off to this year! It is so lovely to have everyone back in school and we have been loving see all of our KS2 friends too. We now have lunch together in the hall and get to play together outside at playtime with use of the whole field - this caused great excitement in our class - and we also have our colletcive worhsip back together as a whole school. We are relishing these special moments. 

In class we have been busy settling in to our routines. Our mornings are very busy and I am impressed with how well we are learning our routines and how we have sped up. As we do throughout the year but particularly at the start of the new year, we have been spent time learning and practising our 3Bs. Learning to follow our 3Bs in different scenarios such as collective worship and lunchtime has also been great for us too. We have already had lots of children 'shining like stars' and I am sure there are more to come. We have had stars for fantastic explanations in our learning where we have thought about using our previous learning to help us. We have had stars for children working extra hard on their presentation and for focusing on their learning. 

In our topic learning we have been focusing on painting. This has been great fun and the children are learning lots about colours and techniques. We have even been evaluating and analysing famous paintings ready for creating our own atwork. We even used our art learning in our reading lesson today! If you would like to provide your child with an old shirt to wear when painting to save their school uniform slightly then please send one in - please make sure it is big enough to fit over their school uniform easily and is clearly named. 

There has been lots of strange activity with animals in our classroom this week. We found a book with an eye poking through and there are also footprints all over our carpet. The children have been working hard on predicting what this is all about! We read part of one of our books and found out it was something to do with a strange white creature...very mysterious! 

In Maths we have been looking at place value and thinking about tens and ones in lots of different ways. We are also always revising work we have previously learnt. We are getting much better at recognising our coins and remembering they are pence but still need some work on recognising notes and knowing they are pounds. We are also ensuring that we know our important number facts fluenty. We have strated with adding one and we will be moving onto doubles soon. These are great things to quickly ask your child if you are trying to fill the time on a long journey! 

The children had a fabulous time on Thursday with Mr Anson, Mrs Harris and Mrs Buggy. I was so proud to hear what a great afternoon they had. Please remember to return your child's PE kit on Monday reaedy for the week ahead. 

We and the children are very excited about our school trip tomorrow. It is a big day for us all as it is everyone's first school trip! We have spoken to the children about expectations to ensure tehir safety. Please make sure you have read the letter we sent out on Tuesday lunchtime to know all the details.

Matty and Chris from SportsCool visited us this week as they will be running an afterschool club this term for tag rugby. The children had a brilliant time and lots of them were interested in going to the club. Your child came home with a letter today with all the information you need if they would like to sign up. I can't wait to hear all about it. 

Here are some pictures of our fabulous learning so far...
