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!
