Happy Easter

Hello Green Class,

I hope you are having a great Easter holidays with your families and are enjoying resting and playing. Over the next few days, please pick up your reading books and if you did want to do any research into our new topic that would be great. Our new topic is: Pirates. Maybe you could find out about a famous pirate such as Blackbeard or Anne Bonny. It would also be good to keep practising mental maths facts (as listed on homework sheets) and impress your grown-ups with telling the time using o’clock and half past times. I continue to be so proud of you all and look forward to our summer term adventures in learning.

See you next week,

Mrs James x

Half term break

Hello Green Class,

We hope you are having a really great break, you were certainly ready for it after a busy half term. We continue to be very proud of you and our highlights of the last half term were definitely our family assembly and our trips to the theatre and Worcester Cathedral. It has also been a pleasure to see how much progress you’ve made in your learning. We have lots of visitors to our class who always compliment you on your independence, your self-initiated learning and the variety of learning taking place at any one time in our classroom. We can’t believe we are half way through the year already!

Our new topic when we return next week will be a history based topic where we will be delving into all things Anglo-Saxon. As you start to think about school, our main request is that you pick up and read a book each day for the next few days. (Hopefully lots of you already are with the readathon.) It is always great to practise any of the mental maths facts listed on homework sheets too or you could try and teach your grown-ups one of our maths songs such as: Number Bond, Our Tower (finding the difference) or Bob and Steven (odd and even). If you did want to do any topic research, we would love to see it and you will be able to share it with your friends on the first day back.

Enjoy your last few days,

Mrs James and Miss Turner x

Topic news

Hello Green Class,

Firstly, we need to say a MASSIVE well done for a fantastic class assembly last week. We were so proud of you and we’re sure your families were too. We are also grateful to all the families who came and supported us and also for joining in so well. You really were terrific tigers. We also saw some amazing progress in the children’s English books last week as they wrote the Tiger Who Came to Tea story which was aided by their storytelling. We ended the topic with a brilliant day on Friday, filled with stories and tasty treats. We even taught Red Class our tiger dance.

For the next 2 weeks our new topic is: Christianity. We will look at key aspects of the religion including important celebrations, artefacts and practices. We also have our trip to look forward to next week which will support our learning.

See you in the morning for another busy week of learning.

Love Mrs James and Miss Turner x

A brilliant start

Hello Green Class Families,

We hope you are having a great half term and are enjoying a much needed break. The children had a brilliant first half term in Green Class and the transition from an Early Years curriculum to a Key Stage 1 curriculum went incredibly smoothly. We have a class full of happy, motivated learners and we are very proud of them.

When we return next week we start with a week learning about significant events in British history: The Gunpowder Plot and remembrance of the World Wars. Following that we will be learning about places around the world and our chosen place is India. Our newsletter will follow with more information.

Over the next few days, please keep on reading and enjoy being read to but if you did want to do any research about either of the historical events coming up, we would love to see it.

See you on Monday,

Love Mrs James and Miss Turner x

Additional trip information

Your child will bring a trip letter home today but in addition to the information on the letter:

  • If your child would like to come dressed up as a Victorian for the trip, they are most welcome to but they will still need to wear sensible shoes and have a waterproof coat. 
  • Please can all children (including those who are having a Blackwell Kitchen dinner) bring a small rucksack so that they can carry their lunch, snack and drink with them during the day.

Many thanks

Hello Green Class

Hello Green Class,

I hope you have had a restful summer filled with lots of adventures. I can’t wait to see you all and hear all of your tales but I am more excited about showing your our new classroom. The classroom has completely changed and we have lots of brand new resources to play with and explore.

When you return, our new topic is Victorians. We will be reading Beatrix Potter stories in English and learning about what it was like to be a child in Victorian days including what they wore and what they played with. Over the next few days, please pick up a book and practise your excellent reading skills which Mrs Webb has told me all about and if you did want to do any research about Victorians, there will be time to share that with your new learning partner on our first day back.

Enjoy your last few days,

Mrs James x

Happy holiday!

We will look forward to hearing from Miss Kuriger how well you will continue to do in Purple Class. We also want to say thank you so much for your kind wishes, gifts and messages. We were overwhelmed by your generosity.

PE kits

Dear families,

PE kits were sent home last week for an optional wash before our sporting morning. After a long and very hot half term, we noticed that some were not looking as white as usual. Please can they come back into school on Monday.

We are looking forward to seeing lots of you on Tuesday morning as we are ready to impress you with our sporting talents.

Thank you,

Mrs James and the team x

Secret Garden update

Hello families,

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported our Secret Garden business. The children thoroughly enjoyed looking after their plants and watching them grow from seeds. After paying back our start-up fee, we raised over £70 profit. We are going to send half to Cancer Research UK and with the other half we are going to buy something the children would like to take to Purple Class with them which they will share with their new teacher on transition day. They have started to make some really sensible suggestions from electric pencil sharpeners, welcome gifts for the guinea pigs and books they particularly enjoy.

Thank you once again for your support,

Secret Garden HQ

We have now moved to our new topic for the remaining weeks in Green Class which is: On the farm.

We've built a business!

Dear Families,

Green Class are currently very busy getting ready for the launch of our business: On Wednesday 27th June for one day only we will open our pop up garden centre. It has been named The Secret Garden and will be selling plants, seeds and garden decorations and will even have a snack shop should you get hungry during your browsing. The Secret Garden will be open after school and will remain open for any children who get picked up from after school club. Any items we do not sell will also be available at the summer fayre. Please support our new business venture as after paying our start-up fee back to Mrs Moss, we are going to donate some of our profit to Cancer Research UK which is a charity that a few children in our class were extremely passionate about.

We look forward to sharing our green-fingered efforts with you.
