Hello from Holly!
We have had such an exciting term so far. Holly class have been busy doing lots of different activities; we are having a go at making our own kites in our DT sessions and will try them out soon to see whether they can fly; we have also planted our own beans in Science and are learning about how to keep them alive:) - I wonder who will look after their plant properly and whose plant will be the tallest by the end of the term?
In English, we have been learning a lot about pirates and not only created our own dangerous and thrilling pirate stories but also advertised the job to others, by writing leaflets and sticking them on the walls around the school, how to be a passionate pirate!
In Maths, we are currently working on our counting skills and trying hard to memorise how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards. We will also learn about telling the time to the nearest half an hour and do some work around fractions later this term.
In PE we had some really fun lessons when the wall bar was set up in the hall and we could try out climbing all the way to the top and across while we were using our balancing skills.
We also celebrated World Book Day last Thursday, when we dressed up as a character from a book. It was so lovely to see all the children taking part by choosing their favourite book characters and parading around the classroom proudly showing their costumes to each other. We were also very lucky to have a chance to visit our local library and meet Nick Sharratt, a very famous British illustrator and author of several children's books. Nick read some of his books to us and showed us how to do some funny illustrations. We had so much fun!
Upcoming events: now we are very much looking forward to next week for having our school trip to Dinton Pastures on Wednesday 18th March and welcoming our mummies in to school on Thursday 19th March for our annual Mums in School day. We are really excited to spend some time with them and work together on our projects :).
Just a gentle reminder: PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays this term and we need both our indoor and outdoor PE kit every week as we try to use the outdoors more often now the weather is improving.
That's it for now. Check back for more updates next term.
Library Day is: Thursday
PE Days are: Tuesday & Wednesday
