Warmer weather: As we head into the final half term and the weather starts to warm up, please ensure your child comes to school with a named sun hat and sun cream applied before school in the morning. Children may also bring in a labelled bottle of sun cream to apply at lunch time, if necessary. Please ask children to pass these to their class teacher(s) and ensure they are named. Please remember, if sending your child in in a dress, they must have cycling shorts underneath. Thank you.
English: This week, the children have finished writing their reports about the wonder of trees. They have also spent time editing their reports independently before polishing them in purple.
Maths: In maths this week, we have continued with our learning on fractions by finding fractions of amounts focusing on one half, one third and 1 quarter. The children have also learnt how to find unit and non-unit fractions and recognise the equivalence of one half and two quarters.
Topic: The children have concluded their investigation to find out what plants need to grow and stay healthy. They were fascinated to learn the science behind why the cress in the dark had turned yellow and how leaving it out in the light allowed it to turn green. Why not ask your child about what they found out! In art, your child completed their unit on collagraph printing. They will bring their printing plates home after the holidays.
KS1 choir after school club – Choir will restart on Tuesday 6th June. Please collect your child at the normal time of 3.50pm outside of the front of school. If your child is interested in joining the Key Stage 1 choir, we do currently have some spaces. Please let your child’s class teacher know and they will inform me that they’d like to give it a try. On a similar note, if your child no longer wishes to attend choir, please let your child’s class teacher know and they will let me know. Thank you, Miss Smith
Homework: There is no homework for the half term holiday but please do continue to read regularly throughout the week.
Mrs Loudwill, Mrs Sayers and Miss Smith
