Spring 2 - end of week 4
Date: 19th Mar 2022 @ 12:21pm
Many celebrations took place this week in school.
We had St Patrick's day and St Joseph's day, where we dressed up and learnt about the two special saints. We went to whole school assemblies and the children sat and listened so well. They made cards and wrote prayers in class.
We talked a lot about trying to be like St Joseph, as he was a kind and caring man.
We also celebrated British Science week. The children were learning about water changing from a liquid to a solid. We froze water in many different containers and then put them outside in the shade and in the sun to see which melted first. The children made excellent predictions about what would happen. They attempted to melt some ice as quickly as they could, and discovered that if they held the ice in their hands it would melt faster. As science lead for the school, I was particularly impressed with how the class did and how much more they wanted to learn.
This week I also did some phonics assessments with the class. They are doing so well and next week some of the class will move into higher groups and be taught with the year 1 children.
I cannot stress enough the importance of you reading with your child at home on a daily basis. They are bringing home their phonics books twice a week and need to practice each night and return their books every day. In school we have to be so flexible and have many challenges which may mean that your child could read with a teacher or TA any day. They must have their bag and book with them each day so it can be looked at and read.
If you do have any books still at home please can they all be returned on Monday? Thanks.
We are hoping that this lovely weather continues next week and that we will be starting to grow some seeds that the children will them bring home to look after during the Easter holidays.
Have a lovely weekend
