We are on the home stretch and we have been working extremely hard. We have been hearing about some of the amazing things you have been doing whilst on half term.
In English we are reading Harry the Poisonous Centipede and have been showing our impressive reading skills when reading out loud to the class.
We are continuing to learn about time in math’s so if you have the opportunity to ask your child to help you tell the time over the weekend then please do!
This week in Forest School we had a few different activities that the children had the choice of. This included burning willow on the fire to make charcoal which they could then use to draw. Another group cut some elder and took the pith out of the middle to make elder beads. We had some necklaces and snakes made which they then added colourful beads to jazz them up! Another group looked at using natural materials to create art and sculptures inspired by Andy Goldsworthy.
In Art we have been making boats for our beach display. This has helped us to get in the summer mood! Mr Campbell has also provided us with a boat sail which has been carefully put above our displays in the hope it doesn’t fall down! The children carefully cut the materials to make their boats with different colours and patterns.
We are busy rehearsing our song for the end of this school year. Please feel free to have a family sing-along and reach for the stars!
Please don’t forget to pack a sun hat for your child and apply sun cream in the morning so they are fully protected otherwise they won’t be able to go outside. Also, please make sure your child has got a named water bottle with them. We would also like to request that your child always has either tracksuit bottoms or skins with them in their bag as when we go to forest school the stinging nettles are too high for them to wear shorts and when it comes to tree climbing it is best for their legs to be protected.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
