You have the right to play and rest!
Another busy week in Beech Class this week writing about the seaside and things we like to do at the beach as well as learning about rhyme and writing our own rhyming sentences. In maths we have continued our focus on number, reading and writing them as well as revisiting adding subtracting and sharing. We have really enjoyed learning outside this week as the weather cooled and had a great time learning to play a little tennis in PE. The children are really looking forward to their move up morning into Chestnut Class with Mrs Richards on Monday.
As the end of term draws near, please ensure your child has their sound cards, number cards and reading books in their bags as we will be collecting these in next week before the end of term. PE kits will be sent home at the end of the day today as there will be no PE next Friday and Monday afternoon will be the last Forest School session for the group who have been going this half term. There will be no Family Reading session on the last day of term.
Wow! I am so proud of how hard all the children have worked to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times tables this year. They have also used this knowledge to learn the related division facts. Many of them are showing superb resilience and perseverance when trying to achieve a ‘Lightning Flash’ on NumberGym Table Trainer. Well Done! Some have also moved onto the 3 times table and beyond which will set them up nicely for Key Stage 2. Please keep practising over the summer holidays so that they don’t get rusty!
Their final piece of assessment writing was a recount of the scene in ‘Matilda’ where Bruce Bogtrotter was made to eat a huge gooey chocolate cake. The children have used the skills they have learnt throughout the year and written some wonderful recounts. It was great fun!
On Wednesday the children will be taking part in cookery workshops with Telford & Wrekin Services, they’re all pretty excited!
It’s hard to believe they’ve only got five days left in Elm Class, we’ve had a great year and I’ve enjoyed supporting them to be more independent and to take on more responsibility throughout the year.
We’re looking forward to a fab final week in Elm Class!

This week in Acorn Class we enjoyed Forest School, we also went to watch the rest of the school singing and playing instruments in the hall. Next week we are looking forward to our older Nusery (children who are Reception in September 2018) taking part in their Nursery Graduation on Wednesday at 2.30pm.
This week in Little Acorns we have made seaside pictures, been to Forest School, made flags for our sandcastles and made a pirate ship out of big blocks.
