Years 1 & 2 Weekly Newsletters

Dear Parents/Carers                                                                            9th February 2018

 

It was lovely to see so many children cycling and scootering to school yesterday; our visitor from SUSTRANS was very impressed with the turnout.  Let’s see if we can continue our healthy journeys to school after half term.  We were all very comfortable in our PJ’s and everyone enjoyed tucking into the scrumptious breakfast provided by the School Council.  With your help the School Council have raised £102.33 which they will use to arrange another fun event next term.

 

This week, we have been consolidating the work covered this half term and enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year; we event tasted some Chinese food, played or made drums and danced as dragons.

 

In Speech and Language, we took part in our own scooter and cycling event, as our school transport arrived too late for the main event.  We had a fun session on the playground and enjoyed receiving our badges and certificates for taking part.   We have enjoyed learning how to share and divide objects using our knowledge of 2s, 5s and 10 timetables.   We made 3D models of houses from the 17th century, as part of our learning about the Great Fire of London. 

 

During our materials workshop, we learnt a lot about recycling during the visit from the Waste Action Support Programme.  We played games and sorted recycled rubbish into categories and explored the properties of the different materials.  We hope you enjoyed the fridge magnets the children made and brought home to remind them to keep recycling.
