Friday Fanfare 03

Hello Red Class,

Are you tired? I think I’ll soon be asleep with so much fresh air! Well done for a super school trip to Bishops Wood. You represented the school beautifully.

I think my favourite part of the trip was listening to the Viking story about Thor, Loki and Freyja (Freya) as we sat around the fire in the Viking hall. Later in the day, it was wonderful to hear you retelling the story events. Our listening games at school must be working! We’ll be listening to more Viking stories next week.

We also made clay pots, played a Viking game with shields and beanbags and made shelters. You were very good at creeping through the willow when we were ‘hunting’ for our lunch. I was relieved to eat Mrs Barker’s delicious sandwiches though!

As well as a fantastic school trip, we’ve also practised the sound, action and song for ck (duck), e, u and r and used positional language in Maths. We’ve used short film clips, paintings and drawings to find out about Viking life and explored your interests, for example, finding out about and making Viking shields and brooches.

Enjoy the weekend Red Class. If possible, draw a picture for each of your letter sounds in your little blue book. Finally, remember to rest and play. See you on Monday my little superstars.

Mrs Webb, Miss Turner and Mrs Roberts
