On Friday 28th September 2018 we will be having a Wear Something Red Day in school to help raise funds for 4 year old Zac from Broseley, who suffers with a very rare form of Leukemia.
We would like to help him to reach his goal of £500,000 by wearing something red and donating £1 on Friday 28th September.
You can bring the money into school on the day, or you can donate through Zac’s Facebook page called Zachariah’s fight against Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Please come along to our Macmillan coffee afternoon on Friday 28th September 2pm on the main playground.
You have the right to help from the government if you are poor or in need.
What an interesting week we have had learning all about what life was like when our grandparents, great-grandparents and even some great-great-grandparents were children! Thank you to everyone who answered the children’s questions and sent in lots of other information too.
A big thank you to all the grown ups who came to the maths sessions held earlier this week. I hope you all found it useful and I know the children always enjoy it when you come to learn with them too. I will be holding another session in the next week or so for those who could not make it and will send a note home to confirm the date and time.
The children have their new sound cards in their bags. Please ensure they practice recognising the sounds and get to hear lots of sound talk to help them with blending. There will be a repeat of the phonics session on Tuesday 25th September at 2.30pm for those of you could not attend the sessions last week as this was the time I have had most responses for.
We also have our first Stay and Play session on Wednesday 26th September at 2pm – please come along and join in a child-led learning session with your child. If you are unable to attend, feel free to send a relative along as it means so much to the children to have a grown-up come and join them. Have a lovely weekend!
This week the children have been working hard to learn the ten times table out of order and they have been brilliant. Now they will move onto the two times table!
It is really important that they spend time learning their spellings every night where possible. All the children have been given ten year 1 words as these are often spelled incorrectly in their writing. They need to be able to spell these words so that we can move onto learning the year 2 words.
Next week we will be writing our information text about World War 1. I have been really impressed by how much knowledge they have gained from reading books and good listening. They are fascinated by the concept of one hundred years ago and have learnt that this is a century.
The end of week 3 – where is the time going! Another enjoyable week, we have all the class routines in place now and the children have enjoyed a couple of extra sessions of PE this week. Sadly, the weather has turned and it is currently cold and wet – please remind your child when they leave home, in the morning, to take their coat. We have continued with our WW1 topic work and the children have learnt about the anatomy of the eye. I am struggling to mark homework on a Wednesday so I have suggested we set homework on the Friday then we’ll mark it at the same time as the next set of homework is given out (the following Friday). Have a great weekend.
This week the children have really enjoyed drawing round their bodies and singing body songs. They have also been busy sense tasting, lots of them didn’t like the lemon!
On Tuesday everyone had lots of fun in Forest School, they went in the mud kitchen, looked for bugs, built fires and climbed the stepping logs, please remember to send your child with their Forest School clothes every Tuesday.
This is being held tonight at school 6pm… All welcome 🙂
