Dear Holly children and Parents!
It is really lovely to have you all back at school again! We have missed you so much and it is fabulous to see and hear children laughing and being busy in the classroom like we have never left. We are very impressed that you have all come back eager to learn and I know it is hard sometimes to say goodbye to your parents in the morning but you always show us how brave and resilient you all are. We are very proud of you!
We have covered so much of the curriculum in the past few weeks -time just flies when we are having fun - and I hardly believe that the next holiday is upon us!
In English, we have worked on the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. You have all been great at getting into character and acting out the different parts of the story. We have had lots of fun taking videos and watching them back. The story also inspired us to make some yummy sweet porridge sprinkled with berries that you have all enjoyed tucking in to. You can show your parents your newly learnt skill of porridge making as you all participated really well J
In Maths we have been looking at numbers on a 100 square and tried to locate them according to how many tens and ones they have. We are currently working on our counting skills, adding and taking away 1 from any numbers and learning to count in 10s, 5s and 2s. It can be tricky but with a bit of perseverance we will master this skill. I would like to encourage everyone to use your Numbots account and play some games regularly because it will help you greatly with your basic Maths skills.
During our Discovery Time we have been doing some magnificent pieces of art work inspired by some famous artists (Mondrian, Rothko). We are proud of our master pieces so we have decorated our board with some of the work we have done:
In Science our topic is ‘Plants’; we have been discussing how plants grow and what they need to grow well. We have been lucky enough to plant some flower bulbs and we're now waiting for them to grow. Here are some pictures of us planting our flower bulbs J
Thank you for your continued support.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely, relaxing Easter break with lots of fun and laughter. Enjoy the sunshine, the fresh air, the precious family time with your loved ones and please stay safe.
