Week 6 Beginning 24th May 2021


What a lovely last week of term we have had.

Our class froglets are now proper frogs and have caused a stir by jumping up onto the inside of the tank on a regular basis.  The children have been thrilled to see them bouncing around.  They are going to live in Mrs Hayter's pond now, as we haven't got a school pond to release them into.

The children really enjoyed the African based story of Handa, LOVED smelling all the exotic fruits from the story and dressing up in the beautiful prints Mrs Hayter brought in from home (from her trip to Kenya a few years ago)  They also had a go at carrying a basket on their heads-just like many of the women and girls do in Tanzania.

The Maths was fun this week too and the children have been learning about right angled triangles, squares, pattern, tessilation and tangrams.  We also looked at pattern used in camouflage in nature.

We also had a visit from 'The Bridge' Christian education group who came to work with the class on the RE story of 'Noah and the great flood'.

The highlight of our week however, was the visit on Wednesday from our local Police Community Officers who introduced themselves to the class, shared what they did in their job, answered a multitude of questions and, of course, showed the class their amazing police pick up vehicle.

Its been an incredibly busy term and the children are all beginning to show signs of needing a break from school- we have a little snotty cold and tummy upset going round, as well as children becoming tired toward the end of the day.

Have a fantastic half term break.  It looks as though the weather is going to be kind this holiday, so we hope you enjoy some days out too. If you are visiting friends or family, then stay safe and have a lovely time.  Have a super week and we will see you for the children's final Reception term again, on the  7th JUne!!
