Little Donkey

Dear Families,

 

In this year's Christmas play Red Class will sing Little Donkey. Here are the words if you would like to practise at home.

 

Little donkey, little donkey on the dusty road,

Got to keep on plodding onwards with your precious load.

 

Been a long time, little donkey, through the winter's night,

Don't give up now, little donkey, Bethlehem's in sight.

 

Ring out those bells tonight,

Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

Follow that star tonight,

Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

 

Little Donkey, little donkey, had a heavy day,

Little donkey, carry Mary safely on her way.

 

Little donkey carry Mary safely on her way.

 

 

Also, if you're lucky enough to receive a new set of pans from Father Christmas, please send your old pans into school for our mud kitchen.  Old cake tins and utensils would also be appreciated. So far we've received a wok and a jug. Thank you!

 

Mrs Webb :)

 

Mud Kitchen

Dear Parents,

As part of our development of the outdoor area, we are introducing a 'mud kitchen'. If you have any old saucepans, frying pans or colanders then please send them into school! I wonder if our mud kitchen will be as good as the Blackwell Kitchen!

 

Also, just a quick reminder about show and tell, we welcome certificates and special achievements but please keep toys at home as we would hate for them to get lost or broken.

 

Thank you,

Mrs Webb

 

Phonic books

Dear Parents,

 

This week we have revisited ch, sh, th and ng learning how to spell words with these sounds. Please revisit these sounds at home but you do not need to draw any more pictures.

 

Many thanks,

Mrs Webb

Forest School (27.11.14)

Dear Parents,

 

Just a quick reminder that it's Forest School tomorrow (27.11.14). The children will need a hat, gloves and a pair of thick, warm socks (the children can wear their socks to school) . I'm really looking forward to our learning in the woods tomorrow.

Mrs Webb :)

 

 

Red Forest School

Dear Families,

 

Just a reminder that we are off to Forest School tomorrow (13.11.14). The weather is starting to get very cold now so please make sure your child has a hat, pair of gloves and a pair of thick socks. I'm really looking forward to our trip to the woods and our chocolate treat. I wonder, what could that be?

Happy Holiday

Hello Red Class,

 

It has been a pleasure to teach you and to see the progress you have made this half term. The multi skills festival was a fun way to end the half term and once again you represented your school beautifully! Over the holidays try to read your book, practise your keywords and look back in your phonics book to practise your letter sounds but the most important thing to do is ...rest!

Enjoy the holiday and we look forward to seeing you next half term when you will meet my friend Blackwell Bear.

Photos on Friday

Dear Red Class Families,

 

The children should come dressed to school as normal tomorrow. Smart on the top and jogging bottoms on the bottom! The photographer will capture the children from the waist up! 

If you know a friend in Red Class please pass this message along!

Many thanks

Mrs Webb :)

Forest School and PE

Dear Red Class Families ,

 

Mrs James and I have been very pleased with the level of independence demonstrated by the children when changing for Forest School and PE. We have noticed that a few children find the buttons on their t.shirts a little tricky to open and fasten so a little extra practise at home would be appreciated (although we know they are fiddly). If all clothing (including school shoes) could be named that would further help the children and the adults!

 

Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Webb, Mrs James and Mrs Thompson.

Bishops Wood Trip

Hello Red Class,

 

Thank you for a super day at Bishops Wood! You tried hard with your listening and your manners were excellent. The Bishops Wood leader said you were the best organised class she had ever seen! I also really enjoyed the commentary on the coach:

"There's the bumpy road" (speed bumps along School Lane).

"There's the wiggly road" (Spirehouse Lane).

"I can see Sanders Park".

"I've been to Stourport, there's a park with rides".

 

 

When we arrived at Bishops Wood, we enjoyed listening to stories about the oak and silver birch trees, collected natural treasures, completed tree rubbings and even sketched the trees. Finally we listened to a story about stick people and made our very own stick people. What a busy day! Thank you to the Blackwell Kitchen for our super picnic too.

 

See you tomorrow,

Mrs Webb, Mrs Thompson and Mrs Moran

 

Forest School

Dear Families,

 

Mrs Webb and I have really enjoyed meeting lots of you this week to discuss the super start children have made in Red Class. If you couldn’t make an appointment this week, we are usually available at 3.15pm each day for an informal chat about anything you wish to discuss.

This Friday (12.9.14) Red Class will start their ForestSchool sessions. Please send children into school wearing a pair of old jogging bottoms every Friday. Children will remain in these for the day and should be worn with their normal school shirt and jumper or cardigan. If you haven’t already, please send in a pair of named wellies which can remain is school as Red Class will be doing lots of outdoor learning. As we will be changing footwear regularly, please can you name shoes as it is often hard to tell who they belong to when they all look the same!

We appreciate there are so many new routines for adults and children to get used to at the beginning of term but we are grateful for your support.

I look forward to seeing Red Class on Friday and can’t wait to get very muddy!

Mrs James

A Super Start

Hello Red Class,

 

What a super start to the year! We are busy learning our class rules and routines and this will be our focus for the next couple of weeks. You were very good at tidying! Tomorrow put your coat, water bottle and book bag away (your grownup can help you) and then sit on the carpet ready for singing. You were excellent at sitting on the carpet this morning!

 

Grownups, tomorrow we will label the top of your child's water bottle with their initials to make it easier for them to find. You're more than welcome to do this at home if you want to.

 

See you tomorrow Red Class,

Mrs Webb x

 

Your First Day

Hello Red Class,

 

It's your very first day at school tomorrow! We're all very excited to meet you and to have lots of fun in your new classroom. When you come into school please ask your grownup to put your wellies on the rack at the bottom of the ramp (by the classroom). You will then see Mrs Franklin at the door and she will show you where to hang your coat and PE kit. Finally come into the classroom and sit down with your book bag ready to sing songs with Mrs Webb.

 

On the first day please bring a healthy snack from home, such as a piece of fruit, so there is one less job for you to do. Please remember to bring your special boxes into school too so that we can find out all about you.

 

See you tomorrow Red Class,

From a very excited Mrs Webb!

 

 

Thank you

Dear Red class,

 

Thank you for a fantastic year! I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching you all and you have all made me very proud. I have such happy memories of our time together, especially our trip to the farm!

 

Thank you so much for all the generous gifts, I am very grateful and feel privileged to have watched you all grow and develop.

 

All the best for the future, I know you will all work hard and enjoy year one.

 

Have a really happy and restful summer!  Have fun!

 

Lots of love,

 

Mrs Hipkiss xx
