Happy Easter!

It has been such a busy day I didn’t manage to take many photos but I did capture the mini Easter Bonnet parade we did this morning – we were very impressed with the children’s creativity!

Thank you all of you for all your support this term and we wish you all a very Happy Easter!

Tomorrow afternoon – class treat

The children have worked so hard this term and we are very proud of all of them. To recognise this we would like to celebrate the end of term with a class treat. Tomorrow afternoon we will watch a movie and we have some little cake bars for the children to enjoy while they watch. If you do not want the children to eat this treat in school, can you please send an email to enquiries@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk before lunchtime tomorrow.

Party clothes and dance moves

The children looked amazing in their party clothes and dressing up outfits yesterday! We had a lot of fun learning some dance moves. They voted to try out samba, hip hop and disco. (We haven’t tried disco before.) You might like to ask them which one they enjoyed the most.

We are very grateful for all your kind donations to the Good Shepherd appeal.

Recommending books

The children have been having a lot of fun making quick post-it note reviews of their favourite books in the book corner. It’s been great to see them picking up a book and realising that one of their friends has read it and liked it. It’s always good to hear what children have been reading at home, too, so if your child would like to bring in a book on their show and tell day, and tell their friends a little bit about it, that would be great.

Thank you!

24 hour reading challenges

We have had some fabulous responses to this. It’s been lovely to see what the children have been reading and to celebrate what they have done. If anyone else has a 24 hour reading challenge they would like to share, please do send it in.

Thank you!

Wilfrid the tortoise

As some of you may be aware Wilfrid the tortoise now lives in the year 1 classroom. Some of the children have asked if they would be able to have Wilfrid over to stay for the Easter holidays. If you think you would be able to look after Wilfrid over the holidays and would like to know more, could you please send an email to enquiries@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk and we will get back to you.

Thank you.

Non-uniform day on Monday 29 March

Just a little reminder that we have a non-uniform day in Y1 on Monday 29 March. The children can wear fancy dress or simply their favourite outfit and we will be doing some dance moves in the afternoon.

This is in aid of The Good Shepherd Appeal, which is a vital local charity for families in need in our diocese. If you would like to donate, this can be done through Parentpay. Thank you!

Van Gogh’s sunflowers

Last week, in our art lesson, we sketched Van Gogh’s sunflowers, using different mark making techniques. This week, we have been using pastels, and blending colours. I was absolutely delighted by the children’s efforts.
