Good afternoon all - Happy Friday.
It's been another busy week, full of learning and some really great examples of insect habitats!
This week, we have been working hard on our English unit, innovating it, so that we can write in the style of it, creating a guide to our school, using rhetorical questions. In Maths we have continued work on our unit of position and direction, concentrating on coordinates, reflection and translation. In Geography, we worked on our unit on Energy and Sustainability, thinking this week about what sustainability is. (See photos)
On Tuesday, we had a great Forest School session. this week we worked on finding and using natural and recycled materials to create our own insect habitats. (See photos) We have also been working to complete our guided reading book - Matilda by Roald Dahl. This week, we thought about the themes that run through the book and have been creating anti-bullying posters using the characters from the book as inspiration.
Finally this week, we finished with a cricket based session this afternoon, focused on throwing and catching skills, over arm bowling and driving when batting. This is in preparation for a mini cricket challenge that we will attend in Hatherleigh next week, the letter will be on Dojo and a copy will come home with your child.
As the Sun is hotter, could I please ask, that children now have a hat and a drinks bottle and sun cream is applied, prior to them coming in to school, so that they are protected. We are lucky enough to be out on the field at the moment, if your child has hay-fever, please make sure that they are medicated.
Please look out for this half term's home learning on Class Dojo, as well as this half term's spellings. The Home Learning Diary that was sent home, has been used by many of you already, with some really good pieces of work evident. Thank you for sending those in, please continue them for the next few weeks, as they are a great record of the learning that the children have undertaken this year.
Next week, we will have a slightly different week. We will be celebrating the curriculum through the Festival of Hope, working on a different curricular area each day. On Monday, we will have French Theatre in the morning and an Art afternoon. On Tuesday, we will have a singing session and then concentrate on Science. On Wednesday, we will be going to Hatherleigh to compete in a cricket tournament, whilst on Thursday, we will compete in houses at our Sports Day. Please come and cheer your children on between 9.15 and 11.15 on Thursday morning. Finally on Friday afternoon, we will hold a Music Concert in the hall, again, if you are available, please come and join us.
The Summer Fair is nearly upon us. There is a board up outside, if you are able to offer your time during this event, any help is greatly appreciated, whether it be running a stall or helping to set up or tidy away. The Fair starts at 11 on Saturday 9th July and finishes at 2pm, it would be great to see as many of you there as possible.
Have a great weekend, enjoying family time.
See you on Monday
