Our week in Caradoc

We have had another successful week in Caradoc, the children have  been enjoying discovering more about the Stone Age, becoming hunter gatherers for the afternoon! They created clay beakers in their art lesson with Mr Kenyon which they really enjoyed. In English, we have been basing our writing on our class text ‘Stone Age, Bone Age’. Our Maths work has been focused on place value. The children have been working with numbers up to 1000 using a range of practical resources to solve problems. In spelling we have been looking at homophones. The weekly spellings are under the spelling tab and a weekly quiz has been set as ‘2do’ on Purple Mash. Login details are inside the front cover of your child’s reading diary. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me via our class email: Caradoc@holytrinitycepa.co.uk

 

Have a lovely weekend!

Our week in Caradoc

We have had a very exciting week in Caradoc, on Monday we had our Stunning Start to our Tribal Tales topic. The children discovered Cave style paintings , created sketches and produced our own chalk sketches on the playground. Then on a Tuesday went to an archaeological dig which they found very exciting. This then led to the children composing lots of questions about the Stone Age and Iron Age which will guide their learning through this topic.  Our Maths work has been based on place value and whilst we have been re-capping learning from last year as part of our recovery curriculum we have also been learning to represent larger numbers. Mr Kenyon leads PE lessons on a Thursday, could you please make sure that your child wears appropriate clothing on this day.

Finally, as you will be aware we are changing how we organise home reading. New books will be sent home with your child on a Friday along with their reading diary. Books will be changed the following Friday, we won’ t comment in reading diaries but we will read comments from home. Reading in school will continue as normal. All children should be able to access additional books via Bug Club online. Their login details are inside the front cover of their reading diary. If you have any issues logging on or have any further questions don’ t hesitate to email.

Thank you once again for supporting both your child and us to ensure we have had a super start to the new school year.

Enjoy the weekend!

Home Reading Books

In order to reduce shared resources between home and school, we are changing the way in which we organise our home reading. We will be sending an appropriate reading book home with your child on a Friday along with their Reading Diary, we will not comment directly in the Reading Diaries but will check your comments and contributions. Their books will be changed on the following Friday.

Children will read at school on a regular basis and we will keep our own detailed records. Feedback on the progress your child is making and any support you may be able to offer will be communicated to you via your child’s class email. Likewise, we would encourage you to communicate with your child’s class teacher via the class email.

Younger pupils will be able to access additional reading books using our Bug Club online reading resource and complete a wide range of reading based games and activities. Their class teacher is able to see their progress. Should you have any difficulties accessing this resource please contact your child’s class teacher. We appreciate your continued support.

Stone Age – Bone age!

Stunning start

Today the children from Long Mynd and Caradoc took part in our stunning start activity. They we’re faced with a scene from the ‘Stone Age’ – this half term’s topic.

The children enjoyed exploring the scene where they were able to describe what they could see and ask any questions they had- which we will answer throughout the topic.



Our first full week in Caradoc

We have had a fantastic first week back in school, the children have enjoyed their work around our whole school text ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers, this includes art, poetry, letter writing, music and much more!

Our Science work on rocks and soils got off to a flying start with some outdoor exploration with Mr Kenyon where the children became archaeologists. They have also enjoyed creating ‘stick art’, working together and encouraging one another. We are all very excited about the ‘Stunning Start’ to our Tribal Tales topic on Monday, please watch this space for photographs.

Again, I would like to thank all of our families for their support in ensuring a settled start to the new term, the children have been amazing and I am incredibly proud of all of them.

Our P.E. lessons will be on a Thursday so please ensure that your child wears appropriate P.E. kit/sports wear on this day. We do hope to make the most of the good weather and spend lots of time learning outdoors so sensible shoes and a coat should be worn.

Reading is incredibly important and we have been reading lots with the children in school. However, in light of the current situation we are changing the way we organise home reading; your child will have a suitable reading book sent home on a Friday along with a reading diary. These are to be returned to school on the following Friday and a new book will be sent home. We will record the title of the book in the diary and would appreciate it if you could record when you have read with your child, we will check this when it is returned on a Friday but will not comment directly in the diary.

We will keep detailed records of when your child have read with an adult in school and feed back to you on a regular basis through our class email. Please feedback any comments via the class email.

In addition to this, children in Caradoc are currently still able to access reading books on ‘Bug Club’ online. If you have any difficulties accessing this, please let me know.

Have a fantastic weekend and I look forward to seeing the children on Monday!

Welcome back Caradoc

It has been wonderful to have the children back in Caradoc class today. They have all settled really well and we have enjoyed being back together in school. The mild weather has meant that we have been able to have fun in our forest outdoor learning area. I hope that you all have a relaxing weekend and look forward to our first full week in school next week. Each child needs to bring a water bottle with their name on, they don’t need to bring pencil cases as they all have their own resource pack. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support. Remember if you need to pass on a message, please use our class email address: caradoc@ holytrinitycepa.co.uk

Meet your new teacher!

As we are unable to have a normal transition into our new classes, the teachers have produced a short video to introduce themselves to their new pupils. We are all looking forward to meeting you properly in September.  Have a wonderful Summer and stay safe!
