What a busy week we have had! The children have completed lots of assessments so that we can see where they need further support. The work that we have put into reading comprehensions has greatly benefitted them as they prepare for their End of Key Stage 1 Statutory Assessments (Year 2 SATs) in May. Their stamina is improving but there is still a lot to do.
In Design and Technology, they have all enjoyed designing a ‘Moving Picture’ of their own. Over the past three weeks they have used a slider, lever and wheel mechanism to make a single part of a picture move. This week they designed and built their own version, they were very creative. Most children managed to incorporate all three mechanisms, well done! It would help if the children could practise their accurate cutting skills, especially cutting out circles, there were some very wonky wheels!
We have also welcomed Max to Elm Class this week who has settled in fabulously. All the children have been really helpful and friendly.
Next Wednesday is the Easter Competition Day and the Easter Disco. The children are invited to wear their disco clothes to school for the day.
Next week will be our last Monday PE session. PE will continue to be on Tuesdays only after the Easter Break.
A reminder that bookbags and Reading Records need to be in school everyday. We read in class EVERY morning. They also regularly need their login details for Mathletics and TTRS which should be stuck inside the cover of their Reading Record.
Have a fab weekend, please keep reading!
