Well done Yellow class for your courage and confidence to perform so well at school yesterday. Your poems were fantastic and it was great to hear all your hard working paying off in your singing too.
I particularly enjoyed seeing all of your brilliant paintings on display. We had a lot of fun making those too.
Thank you for entertaining us. I'm looking forward to learning all about sport over the next few weeks. On Monday we are getting creative with some DT. Have a lovely rest of the weekend.
Miss Kuriger :)
A great BIG well done to all of your for your wonderful assembly and museum today!
Every single person said their words nice and clearly, danced perfectly and performed the poem brilliantly. What stars you all are! I hope you feel proud inside and that you remember that hard work and effort really do pay off in the end.
Lots of people were very impressed with how much you had learnt and could share in our Bronze Age museum also. Weaving, beaker making, collage, reports and our history puzzle all went down really well indeed. I saw lots of you having fun making stone circles too. I know that all of your grown ups will be very proud of you.
Well done again! We'll be learning more about Easter next week so that should be exciting too.
Miss Kuriger :)
Hello Yellow Class,
Thank you for sharing your brilliant assembly with us this morning. We loved it! We particularly enjoyed your 'We're going on a bear hunt' tale and your Bronze Age dance. You'll be pleased to know that many of us got all of the quiz questions right which shows that you hooked us in and we listened well.
Thank you once again.
Love from Blue Class and Miss Townsend xxx
Well, Yellow class. The week has finally arrived...Thursday morning is our class assembly. I hope some of your grown ups will be able to come and watch.
You did so well in our mini practise yesterday. Keep practising those actions at home.
As you might have spotted, Mrs Morgan and Miss Rich have found us some costumes. You will need your PE shorts to go underneath and a dark t-shirt if possible. Please make sure they are in school by Wednesday so we can check.
Of course it's the 'Through The Ages' museum afterwards too, so it should be an exciting Thursday.
Have a lovely rest of the weekend and see you on Monday.
Hello Yellow Class!
We've now completed 3 of our 6 half terms of the year, so that means we are half way through Yellow Class! Wow! Doesn't time fly.
Next half term we are going to be learning about Prehistoric Britain and I've called our topic 'The Bronze Age and Beyond!' This is one of my favourite topics so I'm busy planning all sorts of interesting and exciting activities for us to do.
We will first have a little reminder about the Stone Age before looking at the Bronze and Iron Ages in Britain. Plus, this half term is our class assembly (on the 17th March...so 30 days if I have counted correctly!). Please have a little think if there is anything in particular you would like to do for the assembly.
Year 2s - if you can, please try and collect any little bits of metal this week - bits of foil, paper clips, old nuts and bolts that dad doesn't want etc. But, nothing sharp and ask an adult first. Bring them in on Monday.
Year 3s - if you have chance, become familiar with some Stone Age cave paintings. Your knowledge will be useful on the first day back. Try http://www.lascaux.culture.fr/#/en/00.xml/index.html for an interactive view!
Stay safe and see you on Monday.
Miss Kuriger :)
Thursday has been a good day! Very very well done to Year 2 who won the Wake and Shake competition today. You managed to show excellent timing and energy and are the well deserved champions! Year 3s you have improved so much so here's hoping for next time...I am very proud of you.
Also today, what wonderful designers you have all been. You designed, wrote recipes for and created healthy snacks, which I know you enjoyed munching on. Well done for being so sensible and safe whilst creating your goodies.
For the next couple of weeks, homework will be activities on the school wall and mental maths practise. Miss Townsend and I will both post an activity on the school wall so there will be a choice, or you can complete both - keep on collecting those points for your shields!
Year 2s - practise to be perfect with the 5 times table. This means knowing the multiplication facts, but also the division facts, out of order.
Year 3s - Miss Brown would like you to do the same with the 4 times table. I wonder how many different ways you can practise to help you get better.
Keep up the reading too. This helps your understanding, your speaking, your writing and your spelling! And it can be fun as well :)
In P.E. after Christmas, Year 3 children will be learning how to play tag rugby. This will take place on the school field. Your child will need jogging bottoms, a jumper and trainers in their P.E. bag along with a plastic bag to put muddy trainers into after!
Well done children for a fantastic Christmas production. Your grown ups had a super time listening to your beautiful singing and watching your fabulous dancing as well as enjoying all of the other talents on show. You have all worked extremely hard and well and truly earned your tasty Christmas lunch.
You're all super stars!
Hello Yellow Class,
Here we go…my first message to you!
I just wanted to say a quick ‘hello’ and let you know about some of the learning that we have ahead for next term. It was really great to meet you all before the holiday and think about our first topic a little – Native Americans. The artwork you completed about Native American names was so fantastic. I have it all ready to go on the wall in our new classroom.
When we come back to school on Monday 7th September, we’ll be thinking a little bit about our school history to start with because of all of the big changes that are planned – I hope you’ve seen some of the photographs that Mrs Moss has put on the website showing the building as it is now. I wonder if you spotted our new room!
On Tuesday we’ll start our Native American topic and we’ll begin by looking at totem poles and seeing if we can make our own. Later in term I’m looking forward to some great history lessons and drawing in art, as well as Native American music to enjoy!
If you want to get ahead with your learning then you could start to research a little about Native Americans. Perhaps you want to show your learning through a fact file, story, piece of artwork or even a poem. You can share your learning in class in the first week back.
I think these two websites are a good place to start:
Don’t forget to keep on reading. I’m enjoying the Famous Five at the moment by Enid Blyton.
See you all soon.
