Lawley’s Week!

Well done to Lawley for another good, hard working week.  In Maths we have been concentrating on comparing numbers and objects, with our focus being on using the correct vocabulary and symbols for greater than, less than and equal to.  In English we have been looking at the key features of a recount in preparation of writing one in the next two weeks.

In RE we are concentrating on Judaism this half term, with children this week learning about the Jewish creation story.  In Topic we had an amazing start at the beginning of the week with a spaceship crash landing on our school field (see separate post). We have discussed this in detail in class and in Science, we analysed which materials we could see on the crash site, concentrating on describing the properties.  We also used the compasses to support our directions, learning about north, east, south and west.

We had our first spelling test on Friday and I was very pleased to see that so many of Lawley had learnt their spellings, let’s keep up the hard work!  Also, thank you to everyone who has read with their child at home, dojo points have been issued and it’s wonderful to see how children are sharing their books at home.

 

Online access codes have now been stuck in all children’s reading diaries.  These are for Bug Club (extra reading books): Purple Mash (online games and spelling practice), Mathletics (maths games) and Times Table Rock Stars (times table practice).  Please do have a go on these, they are a great tool for extra learning alongside our school work. If you have any questions, please do let me know.

A big well done to Ollie for receiving Star of the Week, you have been a good friend this week, helping others as well as demonstrating positive behaviour.

Finally, the children who were in Lawley last year or are new to our school need to reregister for Class Dojo.  New codes were sent out last week.  Please ensure you register and keep in touch.

 

Spaceship Crash Landing!

We had an emergency email and zoom meeting with Mr Dickson this morning, who reported something had crash landed on our school field. We all wondered what this could be so went out to explore.

Lawley had fun wondering around the crash site, looking for clues.  We found slime, metal, plastic, wires and much more. All the children used great descriptive language and used their science skills to investigate the different materials! We are looking forward to focussing on this over the next few weeks.

Lawley’s Week!

We have had a busy week in Lawley! Our week has included making the planets of the Solar System, designing posters to stop the extinction of animals, developing our knowledge of tens and ones up to 100, PE and exploring a range of different objects and the materials they are made from.

Congratulations to our Star of the Week, Odin, for his fantastic determination in his writing and using his phonics.  We were also impressed with Odin’s knowledge of the planets.

All Lawley children now have a reading book in a school book bag. Please ensure your child reads daily and log this in their reading diaries.  Everyone needs to return their school book bag on a a Friday so we can change the reading books. We also have access to bug club, if you are having issues with logging on, please do let me know.

Our weekly spelling test will be on a Friday, with new spellings being sent home on Friday, please ensure your child learns their spellings.

Lawley will be participating in PE on Monday’s and Friday’s, so please send your child to school in their PE kit on these two days.

One final reminder, please send your child to school with a drinks bottle. We are refilling the throughout the day.

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.

Well Done Lovely Lawley and a Happy Summer Break!

Hello Lawley!

We just wanted to say well done to everyone for their fantastic efforts over the last few months, whether you have been at home, in a key worker group or in a bubble. We are extremely proud of each and every one of you.

Also a big thank you and well done to all the parents and carers, you have worked so hard ensuring your child continues with their education. I know it has been hard at times (it has been for me with my two girls, especially with secondary school work!) but we have got through it together.

We hope you all have a lovely, well deserved summer break. Please stay safe, relax and have fun. It would be great if you could read a few times a week and practice your phonics and handwriting regularly just so we can have the best start in September.

Although I am not in school over the summer, I am available through Class Dojo. I may not reply straight away, but I will as soon as I possibly can.

Thank you also for all the beautiful gifts sent into school for myself and Mrs Morgan, we were really touched by your thoughts and kindness, so thank you so very much.

It has been a pleasure working alongside all the children in Lawley and parents and carers. Although we have had a very strange few months and an odd end to the school year, we have so many fond memories of the school year and working with the lovely Lawley. You have all been missed hugely and we can not wait to see you all again in September. We know some of you will not be in Lawley in September, but we will still be able to see each other as you will only be in the next door class.

Thank you, take care and please do have a wonderful summer break.

Love from Mrs Thompstone and Mrs Morgan xxx

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!
