Welcome back everyone. 

We hope that you all had a lovely Easter Break and enjoyed the sunshine and getting to see friends and family again. I also hope that the Easter bunny paid you all a visit.  Hopefully, life is finally beginning to look increasingly more and more normal. and I am looking forward to hearing what you have been up to.  In school,  we are still trying hard to stay safe and look after each other whilst learning together. We have been very proud of the way you have adapted to the new routines and procedures that we have in place. 

This half term, we are looking at the Anglo Saxons and when, where and how they invaded Britain. We will be using our existing knowledge and developing new skills to gain an understanding of their life and culture and the effect the had on our country. 

Miss Seddon will be joining us for her block placement for six weeks and we are are looking forward to welcoming her properly to Class 2. 

Please remember to bring your reading books, diaries, homework books and water bottles into school everyday.

What a busy few weeks. We have explored Remembrance Day, Anti Bullying week and discussed our feelings about another lockdown.  We are also starting to think about the C word, creating scripts, dances and poetry for a performance and talking about how Christmas may differ slightly this year. The children have been amazing, they have been so understanding and accepting of the situation and have even devised their own solutions to problems. We are extremely proud of them. 

We have started our book, The Iron Man  ( we love it!) and we are on the last few chapters of The Wild Way Home. In Maths, we have explored a new method for addition and subtraction and we have learnt all about soil in Science. The children also really enjoyed sketching the wolf from the Wild Way Home and then creating another picture using pastels.

I have added a few new pages to the photographs.

 

 

Over the next few weeks, we will be continuing The Stone Age but also moving onto the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. We will be finishing  our book, The Wild Way Home, which the children are really enjoying.  To complement the Iron Age, we will also be reading the Iron Man and learning about electricity. Exciting times ahead. 

Thank you so much for your support last term, I realise that it has a strange return to school. Thank you also for your patience and understanding. As a school, we have always been proud of our communication with parents and in these circumstances it isn't always as easy. Please don't hesitate to contact us ( by emial) if you have any worries or messages to pass on. I am looking forward to speaking to you over the phone for parent's evening and sharing just how well your children are doing.

I really can't believe that we only have one week before half term. The children have worked so hard and we are all really enjoying our topics, I am really glad that we are continuing the theme through to next term. The children are now rock experts and can name the three different types with confidence and we made the Metamorphic, Sedimentary and Igneaous rocks from chocolate. This week, we are going to explore fossils. 

In Literacy, we have enjoyed writing dairy entries and postcards and now we are looking at speech. We reached a very exciting part of our book, Where the Wild Things Are,  where Charlie met a boy. The children have illustrated excellent predictions and inference skills and they believe that the boy is from the Stone Age. They have created their own cpnversations between the two characters and we have learnt how to punctuate these correctly. 

In Maths, we have finished Place Value and we have moved onto Addition and Subtraction. The children's previous knowledge of Hundreds, Tens and Ones has certainly helped them and they are all really impressing us. 

Although we are all tired and looking forward to half term, we will have a super last week. 

A huge well done to you all!

We have all been back to school for a few weeks now and the children have settled really well. We are all really enjoying our class book The Wild Way Home. The children are also really engaged with our topic, The Stone Age and our Science focus, Rocks and Fossils. Thank you to all of you who have sent in homework or emailed work to me. 

Mrs Garnham and I have been so impressed with the children's reading and all children have improved since March. This is amazing and is thanks to all the hard work and commitment from parents during the lock down period. Other areas require more support within school, such as spellings,  different styles of writing and times tables. We will be working on these in school and sending home activities where you can support this at home. 

Thank you again.

Mrs Entwistle, Mrs Garnham, Mrs Kinsey and Mrs Laming.

 

 

 

 

Welcome Back- Autumn Term 2020.

A very warm welcome back. I hope that you have enjoyed the last few weeks of the summer and are looking forward to returning to school.  I am certainly looking forward to seeing you all again and hearing all your news. The last few months have to very strange to say the least, but we are really looking forward to joining back together and working together in a safe and secure way. 

The first few days will be getting to know each other again, learning new rules and routines and exploring our new classroom. Things might be a little bit different to normal, but you all coped brilliantly before the summer and I am sure that we will all work together to help ensure that everyone feels settled. 

Our topic will be the Stone Age to the Iron Age and we have lots of practical and fun tasks planned as well as lovely literacy texts. Our Art and Design tTchnology will be particularly exciting and I can't wait to start creating our displays together. In Maths, we will be concentrating on Place Value and recapping on our Times Tables together. Science will link with the History topic and we will be exploring Rocks and Fossils, so there will be lots of investigations. We will keep you up to date with all our activities through the website. 

Spellings will not be sent out straight away and tests will start form the 18th September after assessments have been made in school. 

We really look forward to seeing you all again. 

Many thanks

Mrs Entwistle, Mrs Garnham and Mrs Laming
