A Great Week!

Hi Green Class,

Well done for a great first week as grown-up Year Ones - we've had a great week! You're settling in after a lovely long Summer holiday and are beginning to learn the expectations for Year One. We'll continue to build on our learning throughout the year and I can't wait to see where the learning will take us. Mrs Allen, Miss Farmer and myself look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Nearly There!

Hi New Green Class!

I hope you're having a lovely holiday and have been watching the school building developing on the website. As you can see, there is still lots to be done before we can get back in, so I hope the weather stays dry so that the builders can do all of the work! It will seem really strange having our classroom in a different area but I think it will be exciting too. I'm looking forward to getting everything ready for our first week back. 

If you have time on your hands perhaps you could design a picture of an imaginary school, labelling it to explain what everything is. Let your imagination run wild!

I look forward to seeing you soon.

from Mrs Edney :)

Thank You Green Class!

Hello Green Class,

Thank you for a lovely year together and for all your hard work! Thank you also to your parents for their cards, gifts and kind words. 

Have a lovely Summer!

Love from Mrs Edney :)

Ugly Bug Ball!

As a fantastic finish to our Growth Topic you are invited to an Ugly Bug Ball on Thursday 16th July in school.

You may wear your own clothes if you contribute £1 towards the Blue Cross charity. If you have some Ugly Bug clothes, even better!

We will share our Ugly Bug dance with Red Class and enjoy some party games and food too!

See you there!

Egg boxes and bottle tops!

Hi Green Class,

Please could you bring in any cardboard egg boxes and plastic bottle tops that you have on Monday. We'll need them to help us to create our money boxes next week.

I hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Stone Age!

Hi Green Class!

What a fantastic first day back! You have already learned a lot about the Stone Age and have built part of the Skara Brae village in the playground, been involved in an archaeological dig and made some stone age tools!

We'll use all of our learning to create a non-chronological report all about the Stone Age.

I hope you've had a good day.

Sporting Stars and the Ryland Centre!

Hi Green Class,

Are you ready to become a 'sporting star'? Tomorrow we will kick off our week's topic with our trip to the Ryland Centre to have a go at some athletics. You'll need to remember to have your outdoor PE kit with you, including jogging bottoms, top and trainers. It promises to be very wet tomorrow, so your waterproof coat is very important!

We will be taking our water bottles and snacks with us, so remember those please!

We will be back by lunchtime so there's no need for packed lunches tomorrow.

I can't wait! See you then.

from Mrs Edney :)

Homework Books!

Hi Green Class

I'm really sorry but I forgot to give out the homework books today! Don't worry though,

because I have a Literacy and a Numeracy challenge for you to choose from.

If you would like a Literacy challenge, read your reading book and then write five questions

that you think I would ask you if you were reading with me,  as well as the answers.

Remember to use question words and a question mark. For example, What does the artist

use popcorn for? ANSWER: The artist uses the popcorn to look like snow.

If you would like a Numeracy challenge, write out the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and have a go

at learning them by heart.  If you are in Dragonflies or Caterpillars, then you could also write

the division facts for them. For example, 1 x 2 = 2, 2 x 2 = 4 etc, then 2 ÷ 2 = 1, 4 ÷ 2 = 2.

Next week we will continue to learn to multiply and divide.

Have a lovely weekend!

From Mrs Edney :)

Picture Perfect!

Hi Green Class! or Buenas Noches (good evening)

I'm writing to you all the way from Mexico! I hope you're enjoying your Easter holiday and having lots of fun!

I hear that the weather has improved today so I hope it will last for you.

Now, I wonder if you are ready for a challenge -

I would like you to bring two pictures to school with you next Monday. The first picture should be a photograph

of you when you were a baby or toddler, with your name clearly written on the back. The second picture should

be a photograph of yourself during the Easter holiday (it could be of you on holiday or playing in your garden

or park). Both of these will help us with our Picture Perfect entry day and first week of learning.

I look forward to seeing you then.

from Mrs Edney :)

Fantastic Term!

Hi Green Class,

What a great term we've had! I'm so pleased with your hard work, progress and willingness to do your best.

You make me smile every day.

This term you've learned so much and made some beautiful cards for your families at home - I know they'll

love your Easter chick card as much as they loved your Mother's Day card. You are always so keen to

learn new things.

Next term we'll have some more exciting learning, focusing on paintings that we'll see when we visit the

Birmingham Art Gallery. I'm sure we'll create some of our own beautiful art work too, ready for our own

Blackwell Gallery.

Have a lovely break, a fantastic holiday if you're going away and enjoy being with your family.

See you in the Summer Term.

Love from Mrs Edney :)

Scientists ahoy!

Hello Green Class scientists,

This week we will be investigating more forces and I need your help! Do you have any toys

at home that you have to push or pull to make them move? If you do, could you bring

them in so that we can investigate them further? What about things that you can twist

or stretch to make them change shape? If you have anything suitable, it would be helpful

if you could bring them in on Monday. Thank you. See you soon.

From Mrs Edney :)

Worcester Cathedral Trip!

Hello Green Class,

I hope you've  had a lovely weekend and are ready for a great week of school. I'm looking

forward to our trip to Worcester Cathedral tomorrow. It's a beautiful place and if you

haven't been there before I know you're going to be amazed by the size of it! If you

think about the size of St. Catherine's Church and then imagine more than ten of them,

you'll start to imagine the size of Worcester Cathedral. Remember to bring a

waterproof jacket and your water bottle too. Mrs Barker will make your lunch for you.

See you soon.

From Mrs Edney :)

 

 

Class Assembly!

Hi Green Class

I hope you've had a lovely weekend! I wonder which homework you've chosen - I always like to see

how creative you've been. Well done to all those children who learned to sign onto the school

wall last week - and a big WELL DONE to the experts who helped you to do that. By the end

of this week all of Green Class will have signed on and we will then be able to start using the wall.

A quick reminder to all of your grown ups - it's our Class Assembly on Thursday and we look forward

to seeing you in school. We're looking forward to showing you what we have been learning at school!

See you tomorrow.

Mrs Edney :)

A great first week!

Hi Green Class,

What a lovely first week of the new year we had last week! You have come back to school showing

how very grown up you are becoming. You've really enjoyed the start of our new topic and I'm sure

we're going to learn a lot about Katie Morag. We've already had a go at learning some Scottish dance

steps, haven't we!! I'm looking forward to another great week. Remember your PE kit.

Mrs Edney :)
