Welcome back to the second half of the Spring Term. We hope you have had a restful, yet fun packed holiday.
We would just like to say a huge thank you to all the children for their hard work, resilience and determination during our last topic of Room on the Broom. The classrooms looked absolutely amazing with all the things that the children had worked hard to make. The children had lots of fun creating spells and mixing potions, which thankfully the children were able to use to make a dragon go to sleep, as it had somehow got loose in the school!
We are so proud of how all the children are making huge steps in all areas of their learning as they all want to be the best they can be. Thank you to all the parents who are hearing their children read everyday as this is giving the children so much confidence to complete lots of tasks and challenges that we are setting in the classroom.
Thank you to all the parents who attended the parent's meeting in Starfish class before half term.
Sea Turtles will have their parent's meeting week commencing 11th March. Mrs Rollerson will send out a letter for parents to choose times in the first week back.
Our next topic is all about mini-beasts. This is the name we give to cover lots of different creatures such as insects with 6 legs as well as the creepy crawlies with lots of legs or no legs!
During this half term we will be going on bug hunts and doing lots of research to learn all about where these mini-beasts live, what they eat and how we can look after them.
Spring time means sunshine (hopefully) and new growth. The children will be doing lots of planting to grow flowers but also vegetables for our garden that they can look after. We will definitely be having lots of fun growing our very own beanstalk, which we will send home to look after. At the end of the Summer term we will have a competition to see who has grown the tallest beanstalk. Each year the children enjoy this challenge and luckily so far, nobody has found a giant at the top!
Today in class we decided to do a kind thing for our friend and make them a friendship bracelet. We asked them what colour they wanted and which colour beads they wanted. When we had finished we told them that "I have made this bracelet for you because you are my friend!" We then thought about what to say if someone gives us a gift. We all made sure that we said "Thank you!"
