Today’s trip

This is just a quick note to say thank you to all our wonderful parent volunteers. We had a great time at the Museum and enjoyed finding out about toys old and new. We were very proud of the children, who listened beautifully to the member of Museum staff taking the workshop, and asked some great questions.

We will put some photos on the blog in the next few days.

Thanks again

 

Reminder about tomorrow’s trip

As you know, we are going on a school trip tomorrow. Children should wear their normal school uniform and have a warm coat and sensible shoes as we may be going outside. Please make sure the children have a named water bottle in a bag that they can carry themselves (together with a packed lunch if you ticked the option to bring a packed lunch from home on the reply slip).

Thank you very much

Topic

This afternoon we continued with our topic – Has childhood always been the same? We looked at the story Peepo, playing close attention to the illustrations. We talked about the things that are the same as now and the things that are different. The children then worked in pairs to draw and label the things they noticed.

Class Information sheets

Today the children were all given class information sheets with an overview of what we are learning this term. All sheets are in the children’s bags. Yesterday the children were given handwriting sheets (please return Wednesday 22nd January) and parents evening letters. If you think you are missing any of these letters please let us know.

Trip on Monday 20 January

As you know, we are going on an exciting school trip on Monday 20 January. Children should wear their normal school uniform and have a coat and sensible shoes as we may be going outside. Please make sure the children have a named water bottle in a bag that they can carry themselves.

We are looking forward to it!

Thank you.

In our science lesson today …

… we were learning about parts of the body. This is the beginning of our topic on ‘animals including humans’. We will be going on to explore the five senses before we start to learn about different animal groups.

Today, the children labelled each other with the names of parts of the body, including some less familiar parts such as shin, calf and hip. We finished with a game of ‘Simon says’.
