Big school

Nursery class and their new friends had an interesting afternoon finding out about life in Reception class. They sang songs, listened to a story, climbed trees, make collages, visited ‘McDonald’s’ in the role play area, dug holes to ‘fix’ the drains as well as finding out what their new teachers were like.

Remember to practise tidying up and getting your shoes on and off by yourself. Looking forward to welcoming you to class in September. Mrs Cooper and Mrs Ramirez.

 

A Sporty Week in Year 2

Image

The glorious weather gave Year 2 the opportunity for lots of outdoor activity this week.  We worked really hard and earned some extra playtime.  This gave us the chance for some much awaited football matches.  Our Sports Day was on Wednesday and Year 2 showed resilience and an excellent attitude.  It was wonderful to see you all working together and wearing your team colours. Thank you parents for making sure everyone was so beautifully turned out.  Well done Year 2.  We spent time thinking about the importance of exercise and activity, having fun and supporting each other.

Today we watched the Key Stage 2 Sports Day and cheered on their team mates.  We are excited to see which house wins the trophy this year.

We had a 50 word spelling test today to check our spelling of the Year 2 Common Exception Words.  Wow! Your scores were excellent Year 2.  I am sure you will be able to reach that 50 target next week if you didn’t do it this time.

Year 1’s Week

Another busy week in Year 1! Well done to everyone for being such a good team on Sports Day on Wednesday morning. Everyone showed great resilience and gave everything a really good go. We were very proud of you all! 
We have been practising our sketching skills in Art this week and spent a lovely, relaxing afternoon drawing natural objects. We are going to be making sculptures from these natural materials next week!
We had lots of fun on Monday afternoon with the Year 5 children using an app on the iPads to identify different plants and insects in our school environment. Thank you Year 5 for helping us with our learning – you were fantastic teachers!

This week in Reception…

Image

What an exciting week we have had. We took part in our own Sports Day and then watched our older friends run their races.

In class, we have started thinking about holidays – where we have been, what we do, what we need and how we feel. We wrote about going on holiday and wrote some postcards to send to our friends. Outside we have been using the sand to investigate capacity.

Our vegetables and flowering plants are growing well. We decided that they need a bit more water and time to grow, as the carrots we pulled up were very small.

We have also been thinking more about the skills we need when we go into Year One!

This week in Year 6

Our end of year play is slowly starting to take shape and we’ve spent time this week in the hall practising with our props! Keep practising lines and volume at home please! Don’t forget, costumes are due in on Wednesday!!

In RE we found out about the Sacrament of Marriage and created our own information pages about it.

We are now at the next stage of our theme park projects and we were able to spend 50% of our profits to make further improvements to our parks and spend some money on advertising.

We also spent some time on our Year Books so they are ready for our Mass.

The children were fanatics leaders for the Infants Sports Day on Wednesday- we were all so very proud of them!

On Friday they did a superb job in their own Sports Day and then they rushed off to attend JHN’s Community Mass.

Have a lovely weekend!
