What a busy week!
Excitingly on Wednesday, we had pink faces and soggy socks due to the snow fall. The children coped really well with the disruption to the timetable and we managed to continue our work on long division despite the distraction of snow outside!
In complete contrast to the weather outside, we have continued our journey through the Amazon as we read our book The Explorer. We have all been enjoying the adventures f the children stranded in the jungle. Ask your child to tell you the exciting journey so far....
On Thursday we had our second carousel morning, where the children rotate around three sessions: PE (Mrs Roberts), Spag (Mrs Cowley) and Ukuleles (Mrs Crookes). Most excitingly, we had taken delivery earlier in the week, of 30 ukuleles which will be used initially in Year 5 but hopefully, eventually, throughout school. The children were almost as excited as Mrs Crookes by the sight of a cupboard full of ukuleles! Feedback from the children about the carousel morning was overwhelmingly positive with one child saying "It's gret because everyone has a smile on their face and no-one wants any of the activities to end".
The only possible improvement the children raised was regarding clothing. All children get changed into PE kit as soon as school starts, and they stay in their kit until lunchtime. At the moment, the PE sessions are in the Scout Hall, however the children do go outside for break time dressed in PE kit. We have reminded the children that they need outdoor PE kit in school and that this is even more important given the new Thursday arrangement. We would really appreciate you checking that you child has appropriate clothing in school for outdoor PE.
We have asked the children for their feedback regarding the Thursday carousel and would love to hear feedback from you too - either comment on the blog, or send a message into school!
